Moga Festival is returning to the real-life Astapor, but unlike in Game of Thrones, there'll likely be no dances with dragons here.

Instead, the port city of Morocco's Essaouira, where scenes from the fictional Game of Thrones location Astapor were filmed, will host more than 50 artists at the SOFITEL Essaouira Mogador Golf & Spa.

Taking to the decks in Africa's Windy City are Polo & Pan, DJ Tennis, Lee Burridge, Alyssa & Gia and many more DJs from the worlds of techno and house music.

Moga 2022's lineup features DJ Tennis, Lee Burridge, and Polo & Pan, among other producers.

In A Dance With Dragons, George R. R. Martin wrote, "Brick and blood built Astapor, and brick and blood its people." However, despite the franchise's gritty depiction, in reality, Essaouira is more closely associated with being a destination for yoga retreats and kite surfing.

To that end, Moga additionally presents an opportunity for festival-goers to become exposed to Morocco's cultural past times by offering attendees specialized culinary classes, yoga workshops, and more.

The five day event in Essaouira kicks off September 28th and runs through October 3rd. Tickets and travel packages to MOGA are on sale now.
