Brilliant world music event beats the weather to host another party in Sefton Park, Liverpool. Africa Oyé is the largest live African music festival in the UK. Originally a smaller, multi-venue event, Oyé now attracts over fifty thousand people every June to Liverpool's Sefton Park. The festival showcases new and established African and Caribbean artists, besides celebrating different aspects of the same cultures. Oyé has also been known to programme music from South America, with Salsa, Soca and Reggae proving popular additions to the festival.

The festival has one live music stage, and hosted UK débuts for artists such as Tinariwen and Ba Cissoko. The festival has also attracted a wealth of international artists to Merseyside, including Bonga Man and Luciano. A wide range of DJs also performed throughout the weekend at the Oyé Inn. Last year the festival was cancelled due to a waterlogged field but went ahead this year, with only a few showers on Saturday evening.

Some highlights below;
