In light of the famous Fête de l’Humanité organized by the Parti Communiste Français (PCF) in Paris, the Maroc-Festivals Collective highlighted for three days the cultural and musical diversity of Morocco.

The Maroc-Festivals Collective organized, with the support of Hit Radio, around fifteen concerts by Moroccan artists at the Fête de l’Humanité, which took place from September 9 to 11 at the former air base 217, at Plessis Paté, in Paris.

This annual cultural event created in 1930 is the largest popular gathering in France and the second European festival in terms of attendance with an average of 500,000 visitors in three days.

In a dedicated space of more than 100 square meters, a semi-acoustic stage offered ten concerts by Moroccan artists throughout these three days.

In 9 editions, Maroc-Festivals has presented 25 Moroccan artists on its space and 3 in the official program on the main stage of the festival, which is a first since the creation of the Festival of Humanity.

This year, the guitarist of Dakhla DOUEH opened the festivities, followed by Aziz Sahmaoui who exclusively presented his new project with the cellist Eric Longsworth, Yacir Rami, a promising oudist accompanied the musical siestas, the brothers Mechmouch&Mechmouch entertained the public with their latest Arabo-Manouch creation and finally the Chaabi diva Maha Chaabia.
