People from all over the world will be traveling to Morocco this festival season as Oasis Festival makes its return to Marrakech for its third installment this September 14th – 17th, 2017 bringing a world-class music line-up to music resort The Source. Phase three of the lineup has been revealed, including Agents Of Time (live), Black Rose, Call Super, DJ Stingray, Dr. Rubinstein, Pantha du Prince (live), Shed, Willow and more. With acts including Richie Hawtin, Maceo Plex, Nicolas Jaar, Marcel Dettmann, Anja Schneider, Moodymann, KiNK and Charlotte de Witte also on the roster, this is set to be the biggest edition to date.
There aren’t many festivals in the world where you can ride a camel in the desert by day and dance under the stars at night, listening to some of the biggest pioneers of the electronic music scene. Founded in 2015, Oasis has put North Africa center of the map as the must-visit festival destination of the year. Nuzzled right outside of the city of Marrakech, the festival continues to showcase the finest international talent, as well as experiencing the flourishing Moroccan electronic music scene.
“A house music festival in Marrakech that brings the template of the civilized, sun-kissed rave to North Africa” – The Guardian
For over twenty years, DJ Stingray has been an innovative force in the techno world of Detroit. Through his unconventional techno offerings, the balaclava-clad DJ has captured the attention of alternative audiences worldwide. As the black night sky circuits through the Atlas Mountains that backdrop the festival, his distinctive high tempo, high impact sound will set the tone, making for an intense and electric atmosphere at Oasis 2017.
“For those looking for the sun-soaked, laid-back festival experience, Oasis comes highly, highly recommended.” – Crack Magazine
Also making the journey to North Africa for Oasis this September is underground techno specialist Call Super. The British producer recently dropped his Fabric 92 mix to a stellar reaction from fans and media alike, with Resident Advisor slating him as “one of the most striking artists in electronic music right now” and Pitchfork praising his “spellbinding selections.”
Live performances at Oasis consists of Dial regular Pantha Du Prince, analog protagonists Agents Of Time and Italian multi-instrumentalist Giorgia Angiuli. Plus, Made to Play label head Jesse Rose will join previously announced German producer Henrik Schwarz as they bring their emotive collaborative project Black Rose to the main stage.

Since 2015 breakthrough track Feel Me, the wax-loving selector has been marked out as a unique talent on the house scene, not least by supporter and house heavyweight Move D who also makes an appearance at this year’s Oasis joined in a B2B set by Electric Minds’ Dolan Bergin.
