Afrobeats Poster-boys Burna Boy and Wizkid will headline a new Afrobeats festival slated to take place in Sacramento, California this fall.
The event is scheduled to take place on October 2nd and 3rd 2021 at Cesar Chavez Plaza in downtown Sacramento. The festival founders, Fornati Kumeh and Jehu “Manny” Hunter, stated the essence of the festival in their press release. They said:
We created this event to not only showcase some of the most popular international music artists in the entire world, many of whom continued to be overlooked by major US music festivals, but also create a unique celebration about the beauty of African culture. The team can’t wait to soon debut a completely unique festival-going experience in Sacramento this Fall. Throwing Lost in Riddim in Sacramento was also a no-brainer because not only is this our hometown, but our other festival Sol Blume has ultimately helped to lay the groundwork for us to expand locally and launch a second concept this fall
