Justin Timberlake To Open Morocco’s Mawazine Music Fest

Justin Timberlake will be the opening act of Morocco’s 13th Mawazine World Rhythms Festival held annually in Rabat. The world music extravaganza features local artists and international acts which in past years have included Mariah Carey, Stevie Wonder, and Rihanna.

Timberlake will perform on May 30th on Rabat’s OLM Souissi stage, marking his first performance in Morocco where the Mawazine fest is among events intended to open up Morocco to Western pop culture.

The festival is presided by Mounir Majidi, personal secretary of Moroccan King Mohammed VI.

Majidi is also the founder and president of the Morocco Cultures multidisciplinary arts foundation which organizes Mawazine and other events.

Other announced international performers announced to date for this year’s Mawazine fest are American R&B artist Jason Derulo and Belgian Europ star Stromae.

Rihanna opened the fest in 2013 with a concert that was part of her Diamonds World Tour. It drew a crowd of 150,000 marking Mawazine’s most packed performance ever.
