Want to experience Game of Thrones’ Red City in real life? A music festival will be held for the second time on the Game of Thrones set— yes, it’s legit– in Essaouira, Morocco. Three days of music, open-air stages, beach parties, exhibitions, and more, for the GoT fans who need vacations, and any festival-loving electronic-heads.
Here’s a video of last year’s teaser trailer:
The MOGA Festival takes place where the scenes of Astapor, or the Red City, were shot: where, in Season 3, Daenerys gets her army of impeccable soldiers.
The lucky festival-goers will get the best of both worlds at this coastal destination. Soak up desert heat, take dip in ocean, jam to super chill techno. Repeat.
MOGA will also be held at other various locations in Essaouira, allowing guests to jump around to their favorite techno while simultaneously observing Moroccan architecture. So it’s an educative experience, Mom. You have to let me go.
The creators of MOGA will hold what they call an “Off Festival” in addition to the performers, which will include free talks, exhibitions, dance shows and movies. The full lineup has not been announced, but headliners in 2016 included the awesome artists Ame, DJ Tennis and M.A.N.D.Y.
Don’t. Forget. Sunscreen.
It can’t be as bad as this festival.
