Festival in the Desert 

Music lovers from around the worldwide are looking forward to January, 2009 and the Festival in the Desert. Considered to be one of the world's most distinctive music festivals, the event features renowned local, regional and international artists, when for a week each January, it transforms the remote Saharan village of Essakane, Mali; January 5 to 11, 2009.

The village is about two hours from legendary, Timbuktu and I guess that in contrast to British music festivals, it comes with guaranteed sunshine. Enjoy this video from Leandre Busquet, which does a great job of conveying the atmosphere at the festival.
