Niniola to headline EatDrinkFestival this year

The 2-day event for foodies in Lagos is also now a hub to unite good music lovers

Nigeria’s fastest-growing food festival is back again this year. But this time, there’s a twist—the addition of music performances and workshops. Since the first edition of the EatDrinkFestival in 2015, every successive edition has come with some new developments to make each one more memorable than the last. This year’s edition is sure to leave a lasting impression, as they’ve now included the ultimate Lagos Christmas vibe, with live music sets featuring Niniola, BOJ and Dami Oniru.

Eat.Drink.Lagos and by extension, the festival, started out as a platform to spotlight the best food vendors in Lagos, shifting the paradigm in food culture as we knew it, before they emerged. Having successfully dominated this niche, they are now exploring different ways to add complementary elements to this year’s edition of the festival, most notably—live music performances by popular artists. The 2-day event for foodies all over Lagos is also now a hub for music lovers to unite and enjoy good music.

Speaking to The NATIVE about their new addition to the festival, the Eat.Drink.Lagos team said: “In the last year, we’ve been sharing weekly playlists on blog to give our readers a feel of music we listen to and basically establish our vibe. The artist lineup is an extension of that in the same way the festival is an extension of what we are as a food website.

We’re huge fans of Niniola so having her as our headliner was a no brainer. Boj and Dami Oniru are another pair that we listen to a lot. We’ve carefully selected our DJs as well so it should be a lot of fun. The same way the festival started out as a way to share our favourite food vendors in Lagos, we’re trying to share the music we listen to with our guests as well.”

Given the choice of musicians, we’re in for an even better time than we’re used to at EatDrinkFestival – while the food still remains the festival’s core, the lineup is sure to entertain guests and create a truly unique festival experience you don’t want to miss out on.
