This long dreamed of Festival was very well planned, prepared, and executed. I would love to have a video of Opening night at the Bab al Makina. You really got to see and hear many of the performers for all of the venues of the Festival. It was exquisite. I highly recommend the Nights of the Medina concerts and of... More

Good fun, organisation shambolic at times but essentially worked - not worth buying most expensive seats (they are all uncomfortable) so worth while bringing your own cushion - not much english translation so brush up your french - worth doing some homework as some of the bands were not great, some excellent, a couple really excellent.

We came for all 10 days of the Festival on some friends' recommendation and had been very attracted to visit Morocco. We bought the full pass to all the events. The true highlights were few, though extraordinary. The opening event, Conference des Oiseaux, at the enormous Bab al Makina venue, was spectacular. The lines were long and the pass scanners... More

Its great to visit Fez at the time of the festival. There is wonderful electricity in the air, and it adds another dimension to the medina experience.

We didn't book our trip with festival in mind, but the dates overlapped. People and performers from all over the world. Many venues to visit. The week after festival the lycee Francais has free concerts all over city and we were delighted to attend.

We attended four concerts and thoroughly enjoyed them. The atmosphere in the slightly cooler evenings added to the romantic feel of the concerts. People attending were happy and all in all we had a memorable week!

I had the chance to be at the opening of the Festival this year and I can tell you that it's really magical. The music, the dance, the sets and the atmosphere take you to another world!

I would definitely recommend this festival but you need to remember that the word "sacred" is used pretty loosely. I was there for 6 of the 8 days and just SO appreciated the diversity of performances as well as the variety of spaces. It is a little scarey in the beginning trying to find each location but just keep asking... More
