Organizer of the festival, the Maroc Cultures Association is pleased to announce the arrival of the turntables genie Marshmello and 2 stars of reggaeton music, Karol G and Maluma for a closing weekend that promises to be memorable.
At just 27, Marshmello is considered one of the most influential DJs of his generation.

This figure of US electro music will perform for the first time in Africa, Friday June 28th, during an exceptional concert on the stage of OLM Souissi.
With 20 million followers on Instagram and more than 6 million fans on Facebook, Marshmello has specialized hit covers and featuring with the biggest stars of the moment. Selena Gomez, Omar Linx, Robin Schulz, Demi Lovato and Will Smith played alongside this turntables genius, who is an intimate friend of Daft Punk, Deadmau5 and Skrillex.
Marshmello, who always has a hit in advance, will deliver a performance that is already announced as one of the highlights of the Mawazine Festival – Rhythms of the World.
The next day’s programming, Saturday June 29th, promises to be just as exciting!
The Colombian superstar Karol G will start on the OLM Souissi with a caliente party dedicated to reggaeton and Latin music. The singer, who won the Latin Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 2018, is not only outstanding on stage but also a social media star with nearly 20 million followers. Released in 2017, its first global hit, Ahora me llama, has more than 700 million views on YouTube.
Another 25-year-old Colombian reggaeton figure, Maluma, will take over for a once again unprecedented performance in Morocco. Ranked among the most popular singers on the planet, the man with 90 million subscribers on all networks combined has more than 9 billion views on his YouTube channel.
After successful collaborations with French Montana, Jason Derulo, Shakira and Ricky Martin, Maluma has achieved in 2017 a world record tour: a hundred dates and a million tickets sold have made him the Latin singer of the year. No wonder why Maluma was chosen in 2018 to perform the official song of the Football World Cup.
