Morocco's Oasis Festival Announces Addition of Special Guests Black Coffee And Virgil Abloh
Morocco's Oasis Festival, taking place September 14-16 in the shadow of the Atlas Mountains, has announced the addition of two very special guests, South African doyen Black Coffee and versatile creative Virgil Abloh. Combining an impressive lineup that includes Avalon Emerson, Ben Klock, Carl Cox, DJ Koze, Hot Since 82, Honey Dijon, Jessy Lanza, Mount Kimbie, Sasha, Peggy Gou, and The Black Madonna, with a truly authentic cultural experience, Oasis is shaping up to be one of the most impressive boutique festivals of the summer.
Black Coffee's success story is one of meteoric rise with a career stretching back more than 20 years. As South Africa's standout star and and an Ibiza favorite, the award-winning producer counts some of the biggest names in pop music like Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Rihanna as fans. A champion of up and coming talent, the two-time DJ Awards winner recently launched his own streaming app, GongBox, aimed at providing emerging African talent a platform to share their music with the world. With a background in jazz and five albums behind him, the high-profile Hï Ibiza resident is in high demand across the globe thanks to his deep and soulful, afro house sound. Making his debut at Oasis Festival, festival goers can look forward to what will surely be a standout set of the weekend.
After conquering the fashion world via his Off White label and at the helm of Louis Vuitton's menswear line, Virgil Abloh is one of dance music's most talked about talents in 2018. DJing since he was a teenager, the Chicago native has been making waves on the White Isle with much-loved sets at Circoloco at DC-10, and at Hï Ibiza for Black Coffee Saturdays. A longtime Kanye West collaborator, he is one of house and techno's fastest rising stars with recent appearances at Tomorrowland, Lollapalooza and Hard Summer. He is without a doubt a highlight act to catch at this year's Oasis Festival.
Surrounded by the stunning Atlas Mountains in the luxury grounds of the Fellah Hotel, Oasis Festival boasts a stage-side swimming pool, daily yoga, a hookah lounge, a sunset cocktail bar, an on-site spa and local vendors peddling authentic cuisine. Presenting an immersive and creative activation 'Welcome to the Kingdom' by acclaimed Moroccan designer Amine Bendriouich, as well as an exhibition by The Museum of African Contemporary Art Al Maaden (MACAAL), Oasis provides a unique opportunity to dive deep into Moroccan culture. Catering to tastemakers in music, art and fashion with a passion for travel and adventure, Oasis is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to explore one of the richest cultures on the planet while taking in sets from acts at the forefront of electronic music.
