We are just mere days away from SABOLAI RADIO and we couldn’t be happier.
To get you in gear for the weekend, here are 5 things you should know about the Ghana’s biggest indie music festival.
1. SABOLAI RADIO is free and open to the public. We are big believers in the power of art and music to transform the world. So, it’s important that we make sure people from all walks of life have access to amazing music, especially that created by the brightest and boldest music makers based in Accra, West Africa, and around the globe.
Please note that children and youth under 15 must be supervised by an adult to gain entry into the festival.
2. SABOLAI RADIO 2015 takes place in James Town, Accra’s newest creative hub. What can we say? We LOVE James Town. Not only is it the birthplace of CHALE WOTE, we are working with a number of emerging artists who are creating new works in the fishing community. What better way to demonstrate the awesomeness that is stirring in James Town than to throw SABOLAI RADIO – our annual end-of-the-year music blast party – here? 18-20 December, chale we dey inside Brazil House (LABS on Friday) and Mantse Agbonaa (Sat and Sun, across from the Light House).
3. SABOLAI RADIO features a unique blend of different kinds of African music. The festival is now well-known for having a bazaar of sounds from AfroBeat, jazz, blues, hip hop, electronic, house, R&B, highlife, soul, traditional folk, rock, fusion and so much more. We have over 30 musicians on deck this year! Get ready to hear some amazing new music as well as classic hits from some of your favorite artists.
4. Relax and bring over your straw mats and blankets to the festival. Mantse Agbonaa is a lovely sand park – a perfect place to get some cold drinks, chill with friends and listen to some great live music. For optimum relaxation, feel free to bring a straw mat, cloth or blanket so you can properly hang out with your crew and enjoy the show.
5. Toilets, parking and more. There will be toilet facilities available at Brazil House (Friday) and Mantse Agbonaa (Sat + Sun). Parking is available on a first-come, first-serve basis in Mantse Agbonaa with plenty more spaces open on surrounding streets. The Cookout @ SABOLAI RADIO features a number of vendors selling delicious food and drink options.
We look forward to seeing you this weekend @ SABOLAI RADIO 2015!
