Oasis Festival has decided to return to its roots this year. As such the party is moving to the blissful Fellah Hotel, where the first edition took place and plenty of happy memories were made. The stunning location, complete with pools and palms trees, lush gardens and giant cacti, not to mention a new layout and an extra stage, is an exciting move that proves Oasis Festival is always keen to subtly evolve and adapt.
In case you don’t want to leave Oasis Festival, you might be in luck this year, as plans emerge for a very special afterparty that will take you deep into the Sahara desert for an extra night or two. Soundtracked by very special guest DJs (to be revealed soon!), it will be a chance to decompress and then have one final, magical dance in what is set to be a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. Keep your eyes peeled for more info coming soon.
