Just like year’s past, we’re opening Gidi Fest’s gates to all communities, providing a day where everyone can come out, enjoy great music, great food, good times and even better people. This year, with the Nigeria economy slowing some people down, people deserve a great day more than ever. Gidi Fest is creating a tradition of youth empowerment and celebrating African music, culture and people in every form.

Hosts for Gidi Fest 2016 include MTV Base VJ’s, Nomuzi from South Africa and Nigeria’s very own, Ehiz, alongside City FM OAP, Sensei Uche. DJ Obi and DJ Kaywise will be on the decks with some comic relief from a couple of your favourite comedians. This year, Gidi Fest 2016 promises to be an astounding show with amazing vibes.

Speaking on the event, founder Chin Okeke says,

Gidi Fest is a music festival that defines the progression of music and urban youth culture in Africa. The festival was naturally born in Lagos because the city is the melting pot of the continent, yet it maintains a global outlook. Our lineup represents the current crop of African music stars.
