From October 12th-15th, 2017.
MOGA Festival has announced its 2017 edition across various venues in stunning Essaouira in Morocco — the filming location of Astapor/The Red City in the Game of Thrones TV series.
MOGA is a music and digital arts festival which focuses on Moroccan, Maghrebian and African scenes and artists, alongside a host of renowned international names.
As part of the event, headliners work with Gnawa musicians to create music for a special concert. There will also be a free “Off Festival” that will offer talks, workshops, fusion events, masterclasses, exhibitions and movies in the Medina; so that locals, tourists and festival-goers can all get involved.
The festival takes place right by the sea, within grand old architecture, hot sun and local cuisines, making it an ecstatic setting.
A detailed program for the MOGA Festival will be released in the coming weeks. For early bird tickets click here.
