In addition to introducing trap this year, the festival will also showcase its Moroccan roots with traditional performances from Maalem Hassan El Gadiri and Houariyat.
On the DJ side you’ve got a host of Moroccan and international talents led by the Moroccan Casa Voyager of Driss Bennis, Kosh and their frequent associate Polyswitch. France's Louise Chen, Paris-based Algerian DJ Hadj Sameer, Crystallmess, Yasmean and Kreggo are also on the lineup.
In accordance with their quest to make the festival more inclusive both for the attendees and on the lineup, a host of African and Middle Eastern have also been handpicked to take part. These artist include but are not limited to Egypt’s Abdullah Miniawy, Jazar Crew, Luka Productions, Penny Penny, Otim Alpha & Leo Palayeng and more.
Known for being a multidisciplinary festival that lends equal dedication to curating interesting talks, art installations and workshops. Partaking in these activities will be the African Music Archive, Moroccan artist Hosein Jadad, photographer Ismail Zaidy, UK DJs Sicaria Sound, and Polyswitch.
