Party goers in Uganda should strut themselves for the new luxury outdoor festival dubbed ‘East meets West’ that is scheduled for August 17 at Lugogo Hockey grounds in Kampala. 

Taking place for its first time, the Afro-fusion day festival is an annual event that will be bringing East and West African arts and creatives together to not only create art but also make magic happen through music.

The event that is sponsored by Johnnie Walker Highball is a mixed bag of East and West African artists from Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania and Nigeria with acts such as Nigerian star, Mayorkun, Oxlade, Karyn, Irene Ntale, Lagum among many more artists that are lined up for the Festival.

Away from musical acts, the event will also include cultural presentations with opportunities given to fashion vendors, food vendors and arts and craft stalls and cultural exhibitions including a lineup of some of Uganda’s coolest DJ’s like DJ Simple and DJ Teyi and many more.
