The first edition of Afropalooza will happen later this year and will be hosted by Talent Africa Group from the 7th to the 9th of October at the Lugogo Cricket Oval.
Over 60 entertainers are scheduled to perform during the three-day event which will be headlined by Nigeria’s Rema alongside Maddox Sematimba, Navio, Spice Diana, Janzi Band, The Mith, Cindy, Lilian Mbabazi, Ragga Dee, Beenie Gunter, Sandra Nansambu, DJ Zato, Sheila Salta and Salvado among others.
Two more phases of the lineup including international and Uganda entertainers will be announced in the coming weeks leading to the festival. Each day of the festival’s production will convey a unique story of Uganda’s musical journey.
Hosted during Independence weekend, this year’s debut edition will be a celebration of 60 years of Uganda’s independence and will be highlighting the journey that the music industry has gone through over the past 6 decades.
The inaugural edition of Afropalooza will feature a carnival-styled celebration around the theme “Uganda at 60” which includes the Pearl of Africa Marketplace for arts and crafts, the Taste of Uganda Food Village, a projection mapping showcase, and the most spectacular display of fireworks ever witnessed in Uganda.
Formerly announced as the Pearl Of Africa Festival, Afropalooza joins the line of Continental music festivals with a focus on showcasing Uganda to the world.
