Less than two months now for the 6th edition of the Transahara 2011 festival. Are you as excited as we are? Have you started your preparations for the desert? On our hand, we are almost ready to welcome you at the Sahara. As you might have noticed, we have changed the location of the festival to near a new hotel in the desert, where you will be able to enjoy a dance-floor that is literally between the dunes.
This will add up to our comfort and we will be able to use the dunes as our screen for the Vj projections.
We are sure this will be a experience you won't forget and we're happy to share with you.
Also, we will tell you, once again, about our FREE ticket giveaway!

The Chill Out Stage
A very important part in all festivals, the chill out is mainly a place where you can rest, restore your energies, meditate and enjoy the company of your friends or just stay by yourself gathering energies. The people that will give you the soundtrack for the chill-out part of your festival experience will be announced by the middle of February.
The Visuals of the Festival : Meet The Team
Of course the visuals are a big part of our festival; at the
same time, you might wonder if the desert by itself is not visual art enough but we've always been
about artistic _expression_ and we could not fail to provide space for alternative visual artists to express
themselves. The Transahara Festival always had a big connection with the visual arts and we have not
left our concept aloof in this edition . Meet the crew that will bring the dream to life:
Global Village Productions - UK
Lugu Testarea - Portugal Link video
Celio - Deco Tk Project - Portugal

We know this is not a very cheap option, but it is worth it. Thinking about ways to save you money and still get the most comfortable experience, we have setup a special option for groups.
If you are traveling with a group of 20 or more people, you can organize your camp, on demand.
For example: Ten ( 10) 2 person tents + 1 Space Tent lounge with toilet and bathroom for exclusive usage of your group +1 hotel room to secure your belongings.
Let us know if you are coming with a big group and what you'll need and we'll help you out finding the best solutions.
