Africa Oye 2016 - the UK's largest free celebration of African music and culture

Published on Wed Jun 22, 2016 by

Record breaking crowds of around 40 000 people on Saturday marked the start of another Africa Oye. It's one of my favourite events, a short walk from my house, with some brilliant world music artists and incredible vibe at Liverpool's Sefton Park. I've been covering the festival now over 10 years for an agency and still love working it. Massive thanks to all the organisers behind the scenes, who do an amazing job. Anyway a few highlights. As ever please contact me directly if you want to use / licence any images. Thanks.
