Every summer in the month of August, the city of Alhoceima hosts the Mediterranean Festival of Music. It is a space open to creation and cultural exchange, with a particular interest in the development and dissemination of the typically Moroccan culture that is the Amazigh culture.
Over the course of several days, the city transforms into a meeting point for the cultural expression of different countries of the Mediterranean and of the local area itself.
The festival is not exclusively about music. In addition to the numerous concerts, there are also sporting events, art exhibitions of paintings and photography, as well as souqs for artisanship and natural products. The festival puts opportunities all over the town, from the mountain and sea, capturing the full cultural scope of local, national, and international artists.
The festival also serves as a great showcase for promoting awareness of the Al Hoceima area and its cultural exports, as well as other festivals which the city hosts, such as the Lalla Bouya Music Festival, the Nekour International Cinema festival, the semi-marathon of Al Hoceima, and the Festival of the Sardine.
