A host of top African acts are expected to grace the All Africa Festival, which comes off next month.

Making its debut in the UAE capital, Abu Dhabi, from February 2nd to 4th February 2024, the show will be spiced up by African acts including Stonebwoy, Omah Lay, Diamond Platnumz, Yemi Alade, Tekno, And Skales.

The All Africa Festival is a celebration of African culture, featuring music, entertainment, fashion, art, and food, all showcasing the unique and beautiful representations of the continent.

Organisers say the festival aims to become “the biggest celebration of African culture in the world,” including both African continental and diaspora cultures.

“The festival celebrates the heart, minds, and souls of the people of Africa. The UAE is an ideal location for this celebration as it is a highly accessible and inclusive country that provides the world’s stage for the most influential culture in the world-Africa,” it said.

As African music genres continue to exert their authority on the global stage, events such as the All African Festival all provide an outlet to further appreciate the vibrant talents and culture the continent offers.

There will be unique displays of live art and creative installations as revellers immerse themselves in fashion exhibits from UAE-based designers.

The festival will precede the Afrobeats in America Festival, which has also been scheduled for February 17, 2024. It will take place from 2:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (GMT-06) at Discovery Green, McKinney Street, Houston, TX, United States.

Similarly, the event in the United States will celebrate Afrobeats music, with participants experiencing the vibrant sounds of Afrobeats as talented artists from around the world come together to showcase their talent amidst electrifying performances, food, a fashion show, and “non-stop dancing.”
