A groundbreaking cultural celebration is set to take centre stage as Party on the Field, the largest Amapiano and Afro-beats festival, prepares to launch in Ghana.
With the mission of amplifying African sounds and culture globally, this all-inclusive vacation and holiday event promises a fusion of music, food, art, and culture.*
The festival boasts a stellar lineup of talented creatives, featuring live performances and DJ sets from influential Amapiano and Afro-beats heavyweights. Organizers are committed to delivering a scintillating experience that not only entertains but also promotes tourism and encourages investments within the sub-region.
Inspired by the success of the "Year of Return, Ghana 2019," which marked 400 years since the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in Jamestown, Virginia, Party on the Field seeks to build on the momentum generated by diasporans returning to Africa. Recognizing the limited movement of Africans within the continent and the untapped opportunities, the festival aims to promote intra-African tourism and catalyze the generation of new prospects.*
The inaugural edition of Party on the Field will kick off in Ghana, with plans for subsequent editions to be hosted in other African countries. The festival aligns with the fast-paced growth of Amapiano, a subgenre of house music originating from South Africa, and Afro-beats, a popular music style from West Africa and the diaspora.
Attendees can expect more than just music, as Party on the Field will showcase a diverse range of local African cuisine, art (including sculpture, painting, pottery, jewelry, masks, and textiles), and culture. The festival will be a platform to celebrate the richness and diversity of African cultural heritage, emphasizing both Anglophone and Francophone influences.
Party on the Field promises to be a unique and immersive experience, bringing together people from diverse backgrounds to celebrate the vibrancy and global appeal of African music and culture. As the festival aims to become a staple event on the continent, it represents an exciting opportunity to showcase the unity and diversity that defines Africa's cultural tapestry.
