Rabat, Morocco -- Mawazine Music Festival has announced the first headliner for its 2015 lineup. Maroon 5 will head to Morocco this summer to close the nine-day event. 

Now in its 14th year, Mawazine has experienced great success, last year catering to 2.6 million festivalgoers by drawing some of the biggest international superstars to the North African nation. 2014's headliners included Justin Timberlake, Jason DerĂ¼lo, Ne-Yo, and Alicia Keys. Therefore, it's no surprise a mainstream artist like Maroon 5 would take the first headlining slot for 2015.

Mawazine will take place May 29-June 6 in Rabat, Morocco. Much of the festival is free and open to the public, while areas towards the front of the stages have varying admissions prices depending on the venue.
