Africa Oye!

This festival occurs annually in the events field at Sefton Park in Liverpool, there are many ways to travel to the park and both bus and rail links are excellent. If you are travelling by car arrive early in the day as spaces are a premium and be polite (this venue is in the heart of a vibrant community). This event attracts many people from all over the world and is a joyous celebration of African culture and music, there are many food and refreshment stalls and lots of entertainment on the outer edges of the field.

Each year the organizers strive to keep the festival free and the lineup of talent is always impressive with artists coming from many countries to play this unique event. Artists such as Peter Tosh, Baaba Maal, Kanda Bongo Man, Marcia Griffiths, Yabba Funk, Black Prophet, The Marley Brothers, Jo Driscoll, Misty In Roots, Finlay Quaye and many, many more have played over the years. The atmosphere is incredible and the people are friendly and warm, the festival is well structured and all amenities are provided.
