After the success of the Dunes Électroniques Festival located on the original Star Wars movie set in the middle of the Tunisian Sahara desert, the natural setting for the TV series Game of Thrones in Essaouira (Morocco) will become the backdrop for the first edition of MOGA, festival of Contemporary Dance Music and Digital arts, a new initiative by Panda events and the Moroccan collective Runtomorrow.
In the course of three days, festival-goers will be invited to an experience outside of time, a novel escape in Essaouira, the ancient « Mogador », to the rhythm of intense moments of music, sharing and partying.
During the day, festival goers will wander between the Medina and the beach where musical brunches, educational workshops, beach parties and digital video installations will follow one another.
At Sunset, the emblematic backdrop of the television series Game of Thrones will become the meeting point for Gnawa musicians and electronic music producers to share their experimentations in the elevated states generated by the rythms’ repetitions. The event will be free to attend and open to all.
Finally, the night will follow course to the sounds of the most prestigious international and Moroccan labels, at parties discreetly located in guest-houses tucked away in an argan forest overlooking the coast.
Thanks to an eclectic and open to all program, MOGA wishes to weave solid bonds between musical scenes, cultures and generations, by offering to build a platform to enhance exchanges between the different operatives of electronic music on the African continent and the rest of the world.
A melting pot of cultures, the legendary town of Essaouira bewitches travellers and inspires artists. Its beauty and magic resonates well outside its borders thanks to the many festivals on the Souhiri calendar. MOGA nurtures this heritage of contemporary influences and bridges the gap between traditional and electronic culture.
The detailed program of the festival will be released in the forthcoming weeks.
