Away from the dancefloor, Oasis showcases the contemporary art, fashion and culinary experiences that are redefining North Africa.
The Mbari House
This year sees the contemporary art museum MACAAL partner with Paris-based designers Art Comes First to create The Mbari House, a pop-up gallery, boutique, and live performance space feat. Sampha, Petite Noir, and Walshy Fire.
From the Jemaa el-fnaa-inspired Moroccan Square to famed local spot Nomad, the food and drink options at Oasis give you a taste of how the rich culinary tradition of Marrakech is being pushed forward today.
UK-based art collective Squidsoup will be bringing their celebrated light installations to Oasis. They’ll be tricking out the Oasis stage and producing an immersive stand-alone installation elsewhere on site.
There’s no better way to start a day of dancing than with a deep, relaxing yoga session. Get to the festival early and check out the bamboo stage for daily yoga sessions before the party kicks off. Mats provided.
The Secret Garden is one of the vibiest hangout spots at the festival. This year, we’ve got Marrakech cocktail joint Barometre serving their craft libations, and the Champagne Bar makes a return.
It wouldn’t be Oasis without those blissful moments spent lounging by the pool. Beat the desert heat with an afternoon poolside, enjoying the chunky, funky sounds of the opening DJs drifting across the site.
“A reminder of the arts’ power to remove cultural barriers and bring people together.”
