Event organisers have also promised a ‘cutting-edge production’ of the festival, together with its selected picks of both local and international artists that’ll bring event-goers on a memorable ‘musical journey’.
‘AURA stands for a symposium of spirits, music, culture and hedonism, and will capture your soul - our journey takes you with us to the stunning Agafay Desert.’ says the press release from Aura Event on the festival. ‘AURA has been developed to embody the natural habitat of the desert, a sacred place where ancient spirits prevail. One can't help but embrace the desert’s energy spilling out from its surroundings, while the spirits expand into the sunset.’
