A new era in the desert !

Bring life where it does not exist, create a world through music and thus contributing to the universal magic : this is the concept, complex yet simple, that offers Zagoa Festival.

After the success of its first edition in 2012, Zagoa Festival promises to be the musical experience not to be missed this year in Morocco.

From Marrakech, the city of a thousand and one night until the Draa Valley and its landscape that combines the desert sand and green palm groves, through Ouarzazate, the Moroccan Hollywood, the path Zagora will be the opportunity to discover a panorama and human diversity outsized .

Starting point for many centuries for camel caravans venturing to distant Timbuktu, Zagora, the borders of the Sahara, but surrounded by the Atlas Mountains, a meeting place for Berber farmers and Arab pastors, marked by hot days and freezing nights, is a land of contrasts, a door between worlds.

While some seek ease and comfort, Zagoa Festival chose the authenticity and challenge.

It is in the south of Morocco, marked by asceticism and fundamental, far away from these modern flourishes such as consumerism and the artificial, the organizers have made the crazy bet to graft their univers.

In an exceptional place around the must of the artistic and cultural programming, Phoenix, the firebird, will arise and establish his lair.

Zagoa Festival is a unique concept of its kind that offers a rare experience where, in a magical environment, more than one hundred artists will perform, including:

• ANTAGON • ALPHA • ATMA • ALLABY • BOOM SHANKAR • DRISS • DIGICULT • DEJAVOO • DARMA • DNI • EDOARDO • ELECTRIC UNIVERSE • GROOVE INSPECTORZ • HEMEI • HP • HYPERFREQUENCIES • KRISTIAN • LAUGHING BUDDAH • MENOG • MISSTICK • MARCO MENICHELLI • MAYAXPERIENCE • NIBANA • OTEZUKA • PROGMATIC • SHANE GOBI • SKYFALL • SUN PROJECT • • SPIROS WOM • SENSUAL SQUEAK • THE TINY FAT GANG • U-RECKEN • UNIQUE REPEAT • WT&U • -Z- (Alpha & Antagon) • 7 ESTRELO …

Many performers take advantage of this event to unveil their latest and craziest artwork and participate fully in the program with their world while laser and light.

An extraordinary festival will know its apotheosis under the wings of phoenix during the full moon, a universal symbol of spiritual rebirth.

The desert cannot be told… It’s experienced!

-REBIRTH-

Bring life where it does not exist, create a world through music and thus contributing to the universal magic: this is the concept, complex yet simple, that offers Zagoa Festival during the full moon.

It is in an exceptional place around the must of the artistic and cultural programming, that Phoenix, the firebird, will arise and establish his lair.

It is under his blazing sun, near the snowy peaks of the Atlas and the desert of Sahara, that it will burn as a result of its own heat and that reborn from its ashes.

Zagoa is more than a festival, it is a unique moment, a lifestyle, a way of understanding the world, which invites you to reconnect with the meaning, origin and to discover your own inner phoenix.

The desert cannot be told… It’s experienced !!

HOLOGRAMME

hollogram
Holography is a technique which enables three-dimensional images to be made. It involves the use of a laser, interference, diffraction, light intensity recording and suitable illumination of the recording. The image changes as the position and orientation of the viewing system changes in exactly the same way as if the object were still present, thus making the image appear three-dimensional.The holographic recording itself is not an image, it consists of an apparently random structure of either varying intensity, density or profile.More info coming soon…

[dopaccordion title= »MAPPING » icon=27 activeicon=28]

MAPPING

mapping
Video mapping, is a projection technology used to turn objects, often irregularly shaped, into a display surface for video projection. These objects may be complex industrial landscapes, such as buildings.By using specialized software, a two or three dimensional object is spatially mapped on the virtual program which mimics the real environment it is to be projected on. The software can interact with a projector to fit any desired image onto the surface of that object.This technique is used by artists and advertisers alike who can add extra dimensions, optical illusions, and notions of movement onto previously static objects. The video is commonly combined with, or triggered by, audio to create an audio-visual narrative.More info coming soon…

LIGHT & LASER SHOW

light&laser
Each evening a light show will be performed. Indeed stage managers will take turns to present a light show worthy of the name.Laser show involves the use of laser light to entertain an audience. A laser light show may consist only of projected laser beams set to music, or may accompany another form of entertainment, typically musical performances.Laser light is useful in entertainment because the coherent nature of laser light allows a narrow beam to be produced, which allows the use of optical scanning to draw patterns or images on walls, ceilings or other surfaces including theatrical smoke and fog without refocusing for the differences in distance, as is common with video projection.This inherently more focused beam is also extremely visible, and is often used as an effect. Sometimes the beams are “bounced” to different positions with mirrors to create laser sculptures.For the Laser show, we have called for the 2nd time, Laser Beam Factory as they are a reference in the field. This association has one of the best laser shows in the world, showcased by recreating real environments and breathtaking scenery light. They perform in several prestigious festivals such as Vuuv Festival and Full Moon festival…
