A new electronic music festival is set to hit the spellbinding sands of a remote Moroccan desert.

The inaugural Aura Event will go down in the Agafay desert, close to the city of Marrakech, on August 27th and 28th. Organizers promise a two-day desert festival experience with "cutting-edge production" and lots of house and techno music.

DJs Marcel Dettmann, Mathew Jonson, and Behrouz lead the lineup's first wave of performers. The undercard features international and local talents such as Agent, Dan Buri, Elements Archive, Francesco Constantini, Lobster, and Loving Since 88, among others.

The inaugural Aura Event is scheduled for August 27th and 28th in the Agafay desert, near the Moroccan city of Marrakesh.
