Oasis Festival 2020 – Music, Arts And Culture In Marrakech, Africa’s First Capital of Culture

Oasis Festival sets the dates for 2020, returning to Marrakech from 11th – 13th September. Tickets go on sale today Wednesday 30th October, with a limited number of earlybird passes available from €100 on their official website.

Morocco’s pioneering destination festival continues to make its mark on the global music scene, bringing a truly unique cultural experience to the ancient city of Marrakech. Launched in 2015, Oasis has ignited a now thriving festival scene in the region, setting the bar high with world class headliners and high quality production, tempting adventurous travellers to dance somewhere different.

As the landmark fifth edition played out earlier this year, more than 5500 festival revellers from all corners of the globe descended upon the city to dance and celebrate. World-class acts including Four Tet, Amelie Lens, Seth Troxler, Jayda G, Yasiin Bey and Sampha, joined stars of the North African scene including Moroccan rapper Issam and DJs Amine K, Driss Bennis and Yasmean to soundtrack the 3-day event. The festival’s newest space The Mbari House, co-curated by MACAAL (The Museum of African Contemporary Art Al Maaden), Art Comes First and Marché Noir, also showcased an extensive arts and culture programme. Take a look at some of the many highlights in the new aftermovie.

Taking place from 11th – 13th September, Oasis 2020 promises once again to be an unmissable event on Morocco’s rich cultural calendar. With Marrakech just being crowned the first-ever African Capital of Culture for 2020, there’s no better moment to visit the Red City. Book your place and keep up to date with all of the latest news on their official website.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
