Marrakech Marathon

Atlas Electronic
Atlas Electronic celebrates world music, arts and culture in a four-day electro festival set amid the shaded palm groves and luxury nomadic desert camping of an ecolodge. Groove your way through daytime workshops, yoga classes and exhibitions until local acts and international headliners take centre stage and provide the perfect tunes for some late-night partying in the Palmeraie.

August 30-2 September

Oasis Festival
Oasis brings together Morocco’s best electronica talent with DJs from Europe for a music festival with a distinctly Moroccan twist. In the afternoon there’s swimming, a souq, yoga and henna art; once dusk sets in the DJs hit the decks. In 2016 the festival was held at the Source hotel, 10km from the city, with shuttle transport available from the centre.

September 14-16
