Gidi Culture Festival is a one day beach festival curating and representing African music and culture. The 2016 edition of the show continues with the theme from last year’s event tagged, “Africa on One Stage”.

“We are really excited to be back this year, partnering with Heineken® to create excellent music experiences that is sure to put us on the global festival map and show the world that Lagos is the continent’s melting pot for music and culture,” Chin Okeke, CEO Eclipse West Africa and Founder, Gidi Culture Festival.
