Marrakesh Morocco

Throughout history, Marrakech always had an enchanting and luring effect on the international art,

music and fashion scene. As in the rest of the world, electronic music is also spreading in

Morocco. The local scene is growing rapidly and international trends in music are being picked up

by local frontrunners. More and more travellers are discovering the country as a holiday

destination because of its lovely scenery, sunny climate and friendly prices. Atlas Electronic aims

to stimulate the local electronic music scene by bringing it under the attention and in return have

the visitors enjoy the great vibes and flavors Marrakech has to offer.
