Every year, about 30 days after the Moslem feast of the Aïd, at the beginning on the month (moon calendar) of Moharam, the S'Biba, the traditional feast of Djanet takes place and lasts several days. It is prepared in El Mihan and Zelouze, two of the hamlets of Djanet. The chiefs (Chouyoukhe) select those who will dance on the tenth day, called Achoura in the Moslem calendar. That allows the performers to prepare their traditional clothes and the women musician to prepare their jewels. On the tenth day the performers that have been chose meet in Doughia, a place between both hamlets, in the bed of the oued.
