Party in an ancient Game of Thrones paradise at MOGA festival in Morocco
Who said festival season is finished?
Date published: 8th Oct 2019
Now’s your chance to party like you’re in Game of Thrones as MOGA festival returns to Morocco’s Atlantic coast for its third year.
Taking place in the port city of Essaouira - whose medina (old town) is protected by 18th-century seafront ramparts – it also happens to be the filming location of ‘The Red City’ from the world-famous fantasy series.
For three days (October 11-13) fans of African, Moroccan and international sounds are encouraged to get lost in the historic place and ‘enjoy intense moments of music, cultural exchange and friendly communion’.
Described as a blissful location by the sea with grand old architecture, hot sun and local cuisines, it’s a stunning setting where culture and colour combine to create a one-of-a-kind experience.
Performing at the picturesque UNESCO World Heritage Site are international world-touring DJs including Blond:ish, Nathan Micay, Oxia, Louise Chen, Folamour and Bradley Zero who will provide the genre-hopping soundtrack for three days of partying in an ancient paradise.
There’s plenty of local talent on offer too, with Daox, Mr ID, Amine K and Nomads playing across pool, garden and terrace stages. It's not just about music either as buggy/quad rides, kayak lessons, windsurfing and camel rides are all available at a discounted price for festival goers.
