We are thrilled to announce the launch of the 1st edition of the "Maarad Music Festival". The festival will take place on Friday, 03 September 2022 at the emblematic Rachid Karami International Fair in Tripoli - Lebanon, built in the 1960s by the renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.


Having Tripoli selected as the Arab Capital of Culture for the year 2024 represents an opportunity to set in motion a collective cultural and artistic renaissance for the city of Tripoli, and to be part of a creative movement promoting local talents, advocating for the decentralization of cultural productions, and making Art and Culture accessible to all.


Building on this momentum, Rumman is piloting this exciting, new, and independent music festival in collaboration with Beirut and Beyond to showcase homegrown musical talents, feature international artists, and create a platform for cultural and civic actors to meet, learn, and inspire each other while discovering a new city and exploring its hidden gems.





-> The Blue Pulpit (LB)

Between Blues and Psychedelic rock, originally from Tripoli and North Lebanon, The Blue Pulpit will present original tracks as an opening act of MMF.



-> Robin Antunes and Benjamin Garson (FR) + guests

Coming from France, Robin and Benjamin will present the end of their project at Villa Al Qamar, a 3 weeks art residency which took place in Rumman this year. Robin and Benjamin are both jazz musicians, after a few years in the National Jazz Orchestra, they continued their path together as a duo for this experience in Lebanon.


-> Monte Carlo (LB)

Monte Carlo is a mixed band between Lebanese, Syrian and Palestinian musicians and singers, gathered in Beirut. They play our original songs, improvisational, folk and traditional music. Monte Carlo has built a solid name in the Beiruti scene, particularly by presenting regular shows in Metro Al Madina.


-> Tarabeat (LB)

Tarabeat is an ensemble - or takhet - of musicians that draws heavily from the traditions of classical Middle Eastern music. Relying extensively on Arabic scales - maqams - and rhythms for their compositions, the group seeks to build off of a long and rich history of regional Tarab music. Tarabeat achieves its unique sound by supplementing an otherwise traditional instrumentation of Oud, Nay, Qanoun, Santour, Violin, Tar, and Riq with sequencers, digital synthesizers, and bass guitars. The result is an energetic blend of dance music, heavily inspired by Tarab, Sufi, and other regional folk music.



-> DJ sets by AHM / Mo_shka / Al_skan_dar (LB)

Usual suspects, Dj AHM / Mo_shka and al_skan_dar will throw their best tracks presenting sets going from electro dabke to afro house / deephouse.
