Notable local artists performing this year include: Asmae El Menaouar, Samy Ray, Najat Rajoui, Rhany, Fatima Tihihit and Fatima Tabaamrant. Several Ahwach bands will also play.
The four-day event will be also marked by the attendance of several international artists, including Algeria's Labess, Cuba's Ibrahim Ferrer Jnr and Estonia’s Trade Attack trio.
