African artists have made us proud through their placements on big festival line ups like DJ Spinall’s Glastonbury set and Mr Eazi and Burna Boy’s Coachella debuts. But the success of Afro Nation in Portugarl was particularly fulfilling because it showed we no longer need to rely on predominantly-white festivals to host big music events around the world.
As if to celebrate the feet, the urban music beach festival is returning to Africa this December. They announced the “Third Wave” festival will happen between the 27th to 30th of December in Accra, Ghana while listing 6lack, Alkaline, Burna Boy, Davido, J Hus, Olamide, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy and Wizkid as they headling acts. Akala, Eddy Kenzo, Kidi, Kuami Eugene, La Même Gang, Medika, Naira Marley, Not3s, Rema, Rotimi, Santi, Teni, The Compozers, Tion Wayne, Wendy Shay, Yxng Bane and Zlatan are also billed on the festival’s lineup, while Distruction Boyz, DJ Obi, DJ So Good and DJ Vyrusky will have DJ sets for the 4-day event.
Safe to say Ghana is the place be between the 27th and 30th of December. Book your tickets for Afro Nation in Ghana here.
