With last year’s tenth edition being a suitably marquee year for the long running Tunisia-based festival Fabrika return for their eleventh edition. Last year’s coverage went instantly viral and with a cast that counted artists such as Thomas Melchior, Herodot, Raresh, Rhadoo, Cesar Merveille, Gescu, Andrei Ciubuc as well as a raft of selectors from around the region. This aspect of Fabrika cannot be overlooked as there is simply no other event like this in the MENA region and as it grows each year this shines a well-deserved light on the wealth of talent on offer.
Taking place right on the beach the gathering will take place between Thursday, November 10th and Sunday, November 13th. Fabrika will again be pulling together our scene’s biggest artists from around the globe and the region’s rising stars. After the magical scenes that unfolded at last year’s event, it was almost a certainty that Raresh, Cesar Merveille, and Ion Ludwig would return to rock the tent once again. Joining them at the top of the lineup will be an all-star cast that includes Alexandra, Cap, Dan Andrei, Digby, Mihigh, Piticu, SIT (Vlad Caia & Cristi Cons), and Suciu.
The massive artist line up is generously populated by artists from Tunisia, Morocco, Egypt, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Germany, Romania, UK, France and beyond. As well as the melting pot of nationalities there is also a huge amount of styles and sounds, local pop-up ethical shops, wellness activities all led by incubators of the Tunisian cultural and creative scene, that all complement each other as well as the stunning backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea. Taking control of the decks over the course of the weekend will be 3lias, Abmain, Adam Dirkheim, Ali Boulares, Anamorph, Atef, Bahaa, Baloo, Briki, chedy, Cosmina, Dawan, Elise Jilian, Emine, Farès A., Formiq, Hamdi Ryder, Hearthug, Hedee, Hitch, Holly Molly, Kby, Maie, Malek, Mddb, Me.di, Med, Melkart, Min8, Moez, Nesta, Objectif, Omar C, Pan-j, Raphael Merheb, Sc-y-la, Snailee, Tamer, Tige, and Zoux.
Outside of the impressive array of musical highlights that the global line-up will undoubtedly offer Fabrika is more than just great music. Return with a tried and tested formula that includes pristine sound, next level stage production, programming that is seldom seen outside of Sunwaves and with over 1,200 visitors expected from around the world Fabrika continues to break barriers in energy and sound.
