All set to return for its second edition! 

The electronic music and digital arts fest – Moga Festival is going to take place in the stunning setting of Essaouira in Morocco. Game Of Thrones Fans will recognize it as the location of Astapor aka The Red City in the TV series. The dates for the 2017 edition have been announced for October 13th – 15th ! 

The event will shine a light on Moroccan, Maghrebian and African scenes and artists. They will be hosting a number of quality underground international names too. As part of the event, headliners work with Gnawa musicians to create music for a special concert. Last year, the audience was left mesmerized all thanks to headliners –  Amê and dOP who performed with Gnawa musicians for the special concert. Other highlights included stellar performances from Ron Morelli, DJ Tennis, Terekke, YokoO, Mind Against, Magda, Lee Burridge, SIS, and much more.
