The fourth edition of Morocco's Oasis Festival will take place from 14th to 16th of September in Marrakech.

Set in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, the palm tree-lined resort boasts stage-side swimming pools, lush tropical gardens and stunning views of the breathtaking North African landscape. Musically, of course, Oasis Festival is just as special: headlining will be the legendary techno figure Carl Cox, following by back-to-back between Chicago native Derrick Carter and party-starting superstar The Black Madonna, Avalon Emerson, Ukrainian techno talent Nastia will offer hi-energy sounds, Dystopian label boss Rødhåd will offer a dark, loopy and hypnotic take on techno.

Legendary Beats In Space radio show host and label boss Tim Sweeney will also bring his eclectic bag of tricks, and William Djoko, Denis Horvat, and Powder provide high-class club soundtracks to keep you dancing.

This year, the atmospheric Desert Oasis and Arena stages will be complemented by a brand new stage, bringing the total number to three. A real escapist experience that offers plenty of mouth-watering delights from hookah pipes to specialty tea - all locally sourced - you can also indulge in mind cleansing yoga and traditional henna tattoos, reset in the spa, layout on sun loungers and generally soak up a very real Moroccan experience at the hands of welcoming locals.
