Blankets and Wine: It was amazing times while it lasted

The ending: From being a much sought after family picnic show that appreciated music, Blankets and Wine had descended from a festival to a concert as per the last reviews, writes Andrew Kaggwa.

On Monday, news broke that the organisers of Blankets and Wine Kampala would not be in position to organise what would have been the next edition of the festival and those that would be taking place later in the year.

To understand the story of Blankets and Wine Kampala, you have to understand the sister festival, Blankets and Wine Nairobi. The festival was started in 2008 as a platform for the promotion, celebration, and exposure of emerging live Kenyan music. One of the most well-known events in East Africa is the festival, which rapper and businessman Muthoni Ndoga, also known as MDQ or Muthoni Drummer Queen, founded.

House of DJs, a marketing company that would later expand into experiences with bias around food and music, introduced the Blankets and Wine concept to Uganda.

The beginning

In 2012, Blankets and Wine Kampala made its debut in Uganda, bringing the same vision of promoting and celebrating local music. Since then, the festival grew in popularity, attracting both local and international artistes to perform on its stage. With its unique blend of live music, food vendors and a relaxed picnic atmosphere, Blankets and Wine Kampala became a must-attend event for music lovers in East Africa.
