Today marks one year since we left Morocco after attending Under The Desert Stars — one of the most unique electronic music festivals that we are ever likely to experience, until a remedy for Coronavirus has been successfully established.
For those not in the know, Under The Desert Stars brought together 200 like-minded individuals for a once-in-a-lifetime dance beneath the myriad stars of the Agafay desert, soundtracked by legends of techno and ambient spheres: Marco Shuttle; Kangding Ray; Neel; Jane Fitz; Anthony Child & Daniel Bean as The Transcendence Orchestra; Ario; Shoal; Don’t DJ; natural/electronic.system; Van Anh; Karim & Malik of Tikita; Koen Hoets; Ben Buitendijk; Vand.
Organised by Dutch collective ISOTOOP and Casablanca-based record label Tikita, Under The Desert Stars was a poignant moment for us at Inverted Audio — so much so that we commissioned visual artist Rebecca Salvadori to produce ‘Desert Rave‘, which is now part of her critically-acclaimed ‘Rave Trilogy‘ film series.
Since Under The Desert Stars will never happen again, we thought a fitting tribute should be made in order to commemorate the festival and to shed light into what took place. Therefore we have compiled a selection of photographs taken at the festival by Tom Durston.
