Morocco’s Oasis Festival taking place this September 14-16 on the outskirts of Marrakech surrounded by the stunning Atlas Mountains, has unveiled its phase 3 lineup with heavyweights Ben Klock, Damian Lazarus, Stephan Bodzin (live) and more joining the ranks for its fourth edition. Adding to an already impressive list of the who’s who of house and techno including Carl Cox, Avalon Emerson, DJ Koze, Honey Dijon, Jessy Lanza,Mount Kimbie, Peggy Gou and The Black Madonna, Oasis Festival is set to be a stand-out on the destination music festival calendar this summer.
Chief amongst these latest names is Ben Klock, the techno heavyweight with ties to the world-famous Berghain, Ostgut Ton imprint and his own influential Klockworks label. Also announced is desert house shaman Damian Lazarus who runs the Crosstown Rebels empire, Bestival founder and encyclopedia of all musical forms, Rob Da Bank, and fans can look forward to a special live set from long time techno favorite Stephan Bodzin. An additional live set will also come from George Fitzgerald, whose exceptional latest album ‘All That Must Be’ features collaborations with Bonobo and Lil Silva.
Next to these big names are innovative young stars like DJ Boring who will go back to back with Austrian talent Demuja, and Rhythm Section and Eglo's deep house, broken beat specialist Henry Wu back to back with Moroccano funk, house and jazz connoisseur Polyswitch.
Germany’s razor sharp lo-fi house producer DJ Slyngshot also lines-up with others like Bali-based Dea Barandana who is frequently championed by Gilles Peterson. Add in JDH & Dave P who hail from New York and Philadelphia and run the FIXED parties, plus Casablanca label Casa Voyager, and you have a diverse yet coherent lineup of passionate selectors gracing the Oasis decks.
Mixing an authentic cultural experience with a world-class soundtrack, traditional local customs and friendly hosts, Oasis Festival caters to those passionate about adventurous travel and quality sounds of the underground. Taking place at the magical and luxurious Fellah Hotel at the foot of the Atlas Mountains, the Oasis Festival grounds are filled with tropical gardens, palm trees, cacti and sun soaked swimming pools all backed by breathtaking vistas.
