Running since 1998, Marsatac has grown from humble beginnings to become a true Marseille institution. A magnificent feast of global rap and electronic music stars descend on the city for a memorable weekend of serious tunes and a high-octane party. Originally dedicated to the Marseille hip hop scene, it has grown into a far larger affair, but still has deep and important connections to its roots. One night of the festival is dedicated to African music, and features some of the most interesting and exciting artists from across the continent, as well as home-grown in Marseille. More than 35,000 music fans flock to Parque Chanot and Plage du Petit Roucas over the course of three days, and music lovers of all stripes would be well advised to join them.

2020 dates TBA.
