Into The Wild comes from the team behind Oasis Festival and invites guests to discover Morocco’s amazing travel destinations through the lens of music, gastronomy and wellbeing. The first edition of the nomadic festival will take place in the stunning coastal city of Dakhla, where the desert meets the ocean. Home to some of the most breathtaking landscapes in Morocco, the vibrancy of Dakhla is the ultimate inspiration for this immersive cultural experience.
The festival’s intimate main stage will host world-class performances from leading international DJs, live acts, and Morocco’s finest electronic music talent. Day 1 of the festival offers up a scintillating live performance from Bulgarian techno-wizard KiNK, along with DJ sets from French multi-disciplinary artist and DJ Agoria, in-demand Italian techno duo Mind Against and German DJ, producer, and Sous Music label head Anja Schneider. There’s also a wealth of local talent on show, with a live set from Paris-based duo WAHM and DJ sets from Casablancan DJ, producer AMVN and rising star Capra.
Saturday brings plenty more opportunities to dance between the sun and the stars, with beats to take you through from day and night. This includes Innervisions label head Âme; French house producer of the moment Myd, a back-to-back set from Berghain and Panorama Bar residents Tama Sumo and Lakuti; and London-based eclectic selector and Rinse FM radio host Jyoty. Local grooves come from breakout DJ Yasmean and Morocco’s celebrated electronic music ambassador Amine K, whose closing set promises to be an epic and fitting finale to the 2-day festival.
Beyond the music, there’s much to explore at Into The Wild. Discover a taste of Morocco with decadent culinary experiences prepared by exceptional Moroccan chefs.
