Africa Oyé announces Julian Marley & Les Amazones d'Afrique for summer 2024

The country's biggest celebration of African and Caribbean music and culture is returning to Liverpool's Sefton Park on June 22nd & 23rd 2024 following record breaking attendances last year. The free festival will take over one of the city's most picturesque green spaces for two packed days of live music, dance, workshops, DJ stages, food stalls, traders and more.

The powerful and creative force of Les Amazones d'Afrique will close proceedings on Saturday 22nd June, whilst Julian Marley, fresh off his Grammy win for Best Reggae Album earlier this month, tops the bill on Sunday with his band, The Uprising.

Beginning over three decades ago in 1992 as a series of shows in the city centre, the Africa Oyé Festival has evolved into one of Liverpool's most beloved annual events, attracting artists and attendees from across the world.

The Oyé Active Zone on site will once again be hosted by Liverpool's world dance charity Movema, and audiences can expect the usual array of multi-arts workshops across the whole weekend, for all ages and abilities. The increasingly-popular DJ stages Trenchtown and Freetown are also confirmed to return with a line-up of local selectors and MCs to be announced later in the spring.
