After nearly four years, 43 editions and over 150 guest artists, Afropolitan Vibes goes large with its FIRST EVER music festival in the third weekend of December. Afropolitan Vibes Music Festival will take place on Friday December 16th and Saturday December 17th when you can expect two days and nights of quality live entertainment and so much more.
AFROPOLITAN VIBES as you know it, will take place as usual on the main stage, but with a slight twist: two consecutive evenings of live music featuring lots of guest artists, some of whom we will announce prior to the show and others that will make a surprise appearance on the night.
As usual, there will be plenty of palm wine on sale. In the day time, you will be treated to back to back acoustic live sets featuring select artists performing in the intimate setting of Kongi's Harvest gallery. URBAN SESSIONS will be hosted by Ade Bantu and Buki Sawyerr Izeogu (Classic FM).
Joining us at the Urban Sessions lounge will be our partners Jameson Whisky. Anyone over 18yrs of age is welcome to visit the special Jameson bar to try their free cocktails.
A host of GUEST DJs will provide music all around the park throughout the two-day festival, as well as at the after parties which will take place immediately after the evening shows.
The fun doesn't end there!
