We are very excited to get back on the road again this summer and meet lots of fabulous people at the best African music festivals and events. We will be travelling all over the UK with our latest African fashion wear that is both colourful and unique.
First stop is one of our favourites, Africa Oye, a fabulous free festival in the beautiful Sefton Park, Liverpool, celebrating African music and culture. We like to support this festival as it is also a social enterprise and has been going strong for 26 years!

Next on the agenda is the not to be missed Africa Utopia Festival at South Bank Centre in London. The well-loved marketplace, and fashion show organised by Africa Fashion Week London, are both free to attend and there are numerous workshops, talks and live performances happening too.
Shortly afterwards we look forward to returning to WOMAD, the biggest and best world music festival, and the dazzling Africa Fashion Week London for our third consecutive year.
