Whirling Dervishes of Konya performing at Fes Sacred Music Festival

Fes Sacred Music Festival

Artists from around the world flock to Morocco's spiritual capital during the annual Fez Sacred Music Festival. The top music artists from Middle Eastern and Western religious communities gather in Fez for a week of concerts, lectures, exhibitions, and intellectual and artistic exchanges. Performances have included the Sufi Whirling Dervishes of Turkey, Berber trance music, Arab-Andalusian music, Hindustani chants, Celtic sacred music, Christian Gospel, flamenco, and the Philharmonic Orchestra of Morocco, with French classical musicians always proving popular. There has also been Sufi artists from India and Pakistan, Japanese drumming bands and a group of vocalists from Mali.

Free concerts are put on and always prove highly popular, the ticketed events are reasonable and the festival appeals to a wide range of people.

The Fes Sacred Music Festival is run annually in May/June. Our private journeys can be booked to depart any day of the year, allowing you to visit Fes at this time. Alternatively we can tailor-make a tour for you!
