Afrobeats music and culture will converge at one venue next month at the Afrobeats in America Festival, slated for February 17, 2024.

It will take place from 02:00 pm to 09:00 pm (GMT-06) at the Discovery Green, McKinney Street, Houston, TX, United States.

Described as the ultimate celebration of Afrobeats music, the event, according to organisers, will be filled with “infectious rhythms, electrifying performances, food, a fashion show, and non-stop dancing.”

Revellers will experience the vibrant sounds of Afrobeats as talented artists from around the world come together to showcase their talent.

It will feature performers like Kobi Jonz, DJ Jimmy Jatt, Donna Adja, Kelly Hansome, and many others.

From pulsating drums to soulful melodies, this festival promises an unforgettable experience that will have fans “moving to the beat” as they discover the rich cultural heritage of Afrobeats and its influence on contemporary music.

The celebration is for die-hard fans as well as people who are curious about this genre. The organisers say the event “is the perfect opportunity to groove, connect, and celebrate with fellow music enthusiasts.”

Tickets are selling fast, and fans have been encouraged to book a slot ahead of time to enjoy Afrobeat music that will “make you dance like never before.”

Indeed, the global impact of Afrobeats is still vibrant, and events like this plays a crucial role in the overwhelming popularity of the genre in recent years.

Sometime in November 2023, Afrobeats King, Davido pulled a massive crowd at a similar celebration of Afro music when he mounted the stage at the Are We African Yet (A.W.A.Y) festival at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.

It was a sold-out concert, and the Unavailable crooner describe the show as one of the “most magical nights” of his life.

The lineup at the A.W.A.Y. festival included: E Cool, King Promise, Lo Jay, Mayor Kun, Musa Keys, Spinall, TXC, and rising Nigerian star Victony.

All of these performers brought on their top game to produce a memorable musical experience for the revellers.

The Afrobeats in America Festival will produce a similar effect on celebrants as the genre continues to justify its dominance and relevance in the years ahead.
