This bank holiday will see Wembley Arena play host to Europe’s biggest African music festival as Africa Unplugged brings the cream of the Afrobeats scene to London.
As well as headline performances from Ghana’s Sarkodie and R2 Bees, the show will feature music, dance and comedy. But organisers also hope the event will educate and inspire.
Africa Unplugged is supporting the charities Save The Congo and War Child and will be donating proceeds from ticket sales to these good causes.
The festival is hosted by comedian Eddie Kadi, a Congo native and War Child Ambassador. The comedy star said he was thrilled to be involved in an event that was not only entertaining but informative too.
I am extremely proud and honoured to be a part of what is history in the making. This event will not only be a modern day celebration of African music, but also an opportunity to highlight some of the major issues afflicting Africa. And what better way to do this then with some of Africa’s most talented artists.
Africa Unplugged are expecting a record turnout for the event with all of the standard tickets already sold out and VIP tickets selling fast. With a bumper packed Bank holiday weekend, this is definitely the ultimate Afrobeats event to end the summer.
