Last year something magical happened out in the pinky palm-studded oasis of Marrakech. For four sunny days and party-filled nights Africa and the West convened in a unique instant of art, music and cultural exchange. New discoveries were made and lasting friendships forged. This was the first edition of Atlas Electronic, a festival celebrating creativity and connectivity in an ever expanding, divided world.
On August 24—27, 2017 Atlas Electronic will return to its intimate home, the award-winning ecolodge Villa Janna, bringing with it another singular program of international and local musicians, DJs and live acts, art, food and tasters of traditional Moroccan culture. Take a dip in the pool to the sounds of dusty house music in the daytime; revel in rapturous West African Gnawa music; sip sweet tea or suck on delicious shisha while drinking in stunning panoramic views at sunset; romp around an amphitheatre to Arabic-infused techno till dawn. Atlas Electronic promises a truly one of a kind experience.
Atlas Electronic isn’t just a festival abroad. It’s a progressive experience, a 360-degree total immersion in a borderless, endless, constantly evolving milieu—a milieu everyone can be involved in creating. This summer come to Morocco to learn, teach, inspire and be inspired. Tickets are on sale now: the journey begins here!Get your ticket!
