About the festival
Transahara is Nomadstribe’s lucid dream gaining shape and growing since 2002. We aim to provide our friends and guests with an outstanding event where we can all enjoy music, arts, amazing happenings and unlikely meetings in an incredible landscape.
Transahara takes place in one of the most magical places on Earth, deep in the Moroccan Sahara: Merzouga. It’s an enchanted place most famous for the gold sand dunes of Erg Chebi and its beautiful lake. Right out of a poetry book, travellers from all over the world arrive to experience a complete desert immersion and wander under the desert skies. The majestic dunes call for introspection, for contemplation and celebration of nature.
Transahara is more than just a festival, it’s a gathering of people who bring into the spectacular Sahara Desert their own culture, artistic expression and personal experiences. A journey through the Sahara where your soul can explore through dancing or stillness, the seductive silence of the sand dunes, the breathtaking views of the horizon’s infinity, the musical vibrations blending together with the desert’s soul and energy and the endless possibilities of surrealistic encounters with others and self.
Since the beginning, the festival has been driven by the mystical powers of its land and its tribal and magical history and we are here to keep honoring its tradition.
