A Moroccan festival that takes place in one of the main filming locations for TV show Game Of Thrones is back for its second year.

MOGA takes place in the port city of Essaouria, which doubles as the cities of Daenerys Targaryen-ruled Astapor and Kings Landing in the fantasy HBO show, and will take place from October 13-15 with an emphasis on the Moroccan, African and Maghrebian music scenes.

Venues in the city include Sofitel Mogador, Skala du Port (used as a set on Game Of Thrones) as well as the French Institute, the Dar Souiri cultural centre and Taros Café.

This year also features an OFF Festival offering talks, workshops, masterclasses, exhibitions and movies in the Medina.

A line-up for the festival is yet to be released but you can buy tickets here.
