Rocking the Red City

 Atlas Electronic music and art festival, Sept 1-4
There is always something going on in the Red City. Our town on the edge of the Sahara desert has attracted some of the most creative and talented people for centuries and of course that makes an impact on both culture and the city itself. Every second spring there is the MARRAKECH ART BIENNALE, a great initiative by our friend Vanessa Branson. In October we are ourselves the hosts of  TEDX, in our opinion one of the most exciting days of the year. In November it´s time for the INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL and the celebrities flock to Marrakech. This year Marrakech stand host for both COP22 (international climate conference) as well as a big tolerence conference initiated by the King Mohammed VI. And then we have all the gallery exhibitions, art installations, local and international DJ:s flying in weekly to host parties and new events popping up all over our beloved little desert town.

This past weekend the international music and art festival ATLAS ELECTRONIC premiered in Marrakech. The eco lodge Villa Janna outside town was the playground for international and local music and art projects. We were thrilled that our communicatsions firm, RED CITY PR, was appointed to do the PR and host the press event for this really cool initiative that will become an annual event.
 Welcome to Atlas Electronic!
This four day event was filled with great music, cool art, great DJ:s and really nice installations. We enjoyed an amazing line-up of DJ.s and musicians and loved to work with this talented team (and dance a bit) so much!
One of the many stages was in this amfi-theatre, all dressed up in Moroccan rugs

Which direction to go first?

One of the many art installations, the artist creating live art with light and a brush - cool!

A lot of attention to details, candles are key in Morocco
