Festival Details - "1Dance Africa Melbourne"...
Australia's first Afrobeats & Dancehall concert series is coming to Melbourne!
Apples & Pears Entertainment (A.P.E) in association with Taliberry Entertainment, are thrilled to announce the 1Dance Africa concert series, an Afrobeats and African culture event that will undoubtedly shake up the nation as it hits Australian shores for the first time ever. With the biggest names in Afrobeats music in tow, 1Dance Africa will make its unmissable debut on Friday 11th October at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion and Saturday 12th October at Melbourne’s Festival Hall.
Headlining this cultural and rhythmic African experience are some of the leading artists in the genre, Wizkid, Yemi Alade, and Harmonize, each of whom are coming to Australia for the very first time. The concert series will also be MC’d by the hilarious world-renowned comedian Eddie Kadi, with still more artists to be announced. Afrobeats is one of the fastest growing pop sub-genres in the world, with its influence being heard in the music of such mega-stars as Rihanna, Diplo, Major Lazer, and Drake, as well as throughout the pop charts. The genre was also recently celebrated at Coachella 2019, with artists such as Mr. Eazi and Burna Boy drawing significant crowds at the world-renowned festival.
