AFRICA OYÉ, the largest free celebration of African and Caribbean music and culture in the UK, is counting down to another summer extravaganza in Liverpool.
Having grown from humble beginnings, Africa Oyé is now one of the biggest of its kind in Europe, last year attracting crowds of over 80,000 people from all over the UK – and it’s still growing.
The pulsating festival is also a truly international event that harnesses the spirit of multiculturalism and tolerance.
It has played host to artists from nations right across Africa and also programmes music from South America and the Caribbean with salsa, soca and reggae always a popular addition to the festivities.
