The Africa Nouveau Festival Returns To Nairobi

It’s back and fiercer than ever, if its program is to be believed.

The Africa Nouveau Festival supported by the British Council returns to Nairobi under this year’s theme “Afrobubblegum” – a celebration of fun and fantastical African creativity borne out of love.

The 2-day/2-night festival that will this year take place in Athi River at Small World Country Club from the 10th of November, and will look to bring together curators and creators who look towards highlighting music, food, fashion and film – some of the center-points of creativity on the continent.

The camping experience will allow you to take in, uninterrupted, some of the installations at the venue, which include live music, wellness centers, art installations and a fashion market.

CEO and Founder Muthoni Ndonga says she is thrilled to be a part of it: “ feels great to congregate again. We have the power to decide what our story is, and we think that we are fun and fierce and our imagination is simply fantastical.”

This year’s festival will be held in Athi River, and the decision on the venue, says Muthoni, was one that felt the most natural: “…we want to be among the hills and the sky and the earth. We want to be in our true nature and escape the man-made cities and their mania.”

Artists set for the festival will be announced in due course. Till then, you can start saving up for tickets!
