  • Glastonbury venue Beat Hotel will travel to Marrakech, Morocco for a wide-ranging festival going down at the Fellah Hotel, March 28th through 31st. In heading to Morocco, the Beat Hotel, a well-loved club at Glastonbury since 2011, follows in the footsteps of its namesake, the beat writers that found inspiration in the region. It includes performances by long-standing Moroccan group Master Musicians of Joujouka, who William S. Burroughs described as a "4000-year-old rock and roll band." James Holden, meanwhile, performs with gnawa master Maalem Houssam Guinia. A number of DJs, such as Gerd Janson, Hunee, Mafalda, Job Jobse, HAAi and Gilles Peterson, will also appear as part of the four-day festival's programming. The bill also includes UK and US acts who have taken a serious interest in African music, such as Auntie Flo and Awesome Tapes From Africa. Andrew Weatherall DJs and participates in Beat Hotel Marrakech's literary component, a series of talks and Q&As also featuring Irvine Welsh and David Keenan.
