Fez to Host 13th International Festival of Amazigh Culture

The city of Fez invites Moroccans and the international public to the 13th Annual Festival of Amazigh Culture, scheduled to take place July 14 to 16.

The event, held under the theme “Amazigh and Cultural Diversity Confronting Extremism”, aims to illuminate the importance of Amazigh culture and the role of multiculturalism in national development.

This event has been called one of the major artistic events in the Fez-Bouleman region. More than 30 international speakers gather together every year in Fez to celebrate Amazigh culture as well as the diversity of the Moroccan identity.

The festival will feature a variety of Moroccan music styles, including Chaabi, Rai, Amazigh, flamenco dance, Mediterranean and Italian music.

Abdelhafid Douzi, Aicha Tachinwite, Hadda Ouakki, Said Senhaji, Ibtissam Tisket and Hassan El Berkani will all take part in the three-day event.

The festival is a gathering place whose mission is to establish coherent strategies to consolidate intercultural and inter-faith dialogue, social cohesion and democratic culture throughout the region.

The event will be organized by the Fez-Saiss Association and the South North Center organization, in partnership with the Spirit of Fèz Foundation for the Fèz-Meknès Region, the Moroccan Foreign Trade Bank (BMCE) and the The Moroccan National Tourist Office (ONMT).

“The expected impact of this festival is to foster dialogue and exchanges between artists, intellectuals, and associations in order to develop joint projects at regional and international levels,” said the organizers in a press release.
