Celebrate 25 years of Africa Oyé

MILESTONE: Africa Oyé is returning to Sefton Park in Liverpool this June

AFRICA OYÉ, the UK’s largest free celebration of African and Caribbean music and culture, is an extravaganza you won’t want to miss.

Tens of thousands, including many flocking from abroad, will descend on Liverpool’s Sefton Park on Saturday June 17 and Sunday June 18 for a weekend of incredible music and cultural celebrations as it celebrates its 25th anniversary.

Oyé’s delighted artistic director, Paul Duhaney, is confident that the festival can live up to expectations, and more, for the milestone event. He told The Voice:

“We decided that it would be fitting to feature a retrospective line-up of acts for Oyé 25.

“The festival and organisation has come so far since the days of the city centre. Africa Oyé is returning to Sefton Park in Liverpool this June and Concert Square, and this is a chance to celebrate our birthday with friends from Liverpool and around the world.”

Milestone

Oyé also works closely with developing artists as well as festival alumni all year round to bring the most dynamic music to Liverpool’s stages.

The Africa Oyé festival is the biggest free celebration of African and Caribbean music and culture in the UK, taking place every June in the picturesque surroundings of Sefton Park. Having grown from humble beginnings in 1992 as a series of gigs in the city centre, Oyé now attracts crowds of more than 50,000 people from all over the world each year.
