The African-themed festival brings together nationally recognised African talents, to give visitors a memorable African experience. Expect live music and unforgettable entertainment throughout the festival with one-of-a-kind activities, which you absolutely must document on Instagram and Facebook to surprise your followers. The blowout will be lit by continuous performances of the talented African drummers “Dubafrique”, popular KIZA’s resident DJ Vinnie & VDJ Tribe to keep visitors on their toes with Afro Beats, popular Nigerian Dubai-based singer/songwriter MKO and many more!
“There are countless reasons to be excited about this event as it is a great opportunity to join our local and expat communities together and give them a glimpse of what African continent has to offer”, said Frieda Nefungo, Co-organiser of Africa Fest UAE.
The festival will showcase spectacular dishes from the four African regions, so guests will be able to tantalise their taste buds with Western “Jollof”, Eastern “Shaya”, Northern “Tagine” by Meknes Restaurant, as well popular Southern “Braai” meaty dishes by Springbok Butchery. Visitors will also have a chance to shop at different stalls for some African crafts, art, jewellery, and enjoy a fashion show highlighting the essence of African culture.
