A North African extravaganza

Gnaoua Festival is an eclectic music, arts and culture festival in the Moroccan port city of Essaouira.

Deeply rooted in North African styles, sounds and traditions, the festival is a vibrant and immersive experience, filling the city's streets, squares, docks and performance venues with a fantastic extravaganza of sound and colour. 

The lineup also extends beyond traditional local rhythms to include contemporary funk, blues, jazz and soul both from Africa and from further afield, transforming Essaouira into a musical, artistic and cultural hub over the course of four days.


The 2020 lineup will be announced closer to the festival.

Gnaoua Festival takes place in Essaouira, a port city on Morocco's Atlantic coast, famed for its bustling streets and beautiful beaches. The city is also a designated UNESCO World Heritage site.
