A Global Celebration of African Heritage and Culture

Our Upcoming Festival Events


14th - 23rd December 2023

Afrofest Africa 2023

Welcome to AFROFEST SA, the ultimate destination for lovers of authentic African music! We invite you to join us for an unforgettable experience as we celebrate the rich and vibrant sounds of Africa, both local and from the African diaspora.  The festival aims to unite South Africans around the belief that we are all Africans, and promotes a sense of African identity that recognises and celebrates the inclusive multicultural tapestry of the African continent.  

The project will bring artists from Canada to perform with and alongside South African talent for cross-promotional and educational purposes and to connect the South African and Canadian musical industries.

The 2023 project will also launch AFROFEST CAPE TOWN as an annual self-sustaining event and thereby create a lasting legacy in promoting a positive image of African culture.


Afrofest SA is a celebration of the rich and diverse musical traditions of the African continent. This festival brings performers, musicians, and enthusiasts from all over the world to experience the sounds and rhythms of Africa, together.

Experiencing African music is a journey into a world of rhythm, melody, and cultural richness. Whether you are listening to the haunting sounds of the kora in Senegal, the soulful vocals of a South African gospel choir, or the upbeat rhythms of Nigerian afrobeat, African music has a way of captivating the listener and taking them on a journey through the traditions and histories of the continent.
Experiencing African music live is a truly unforgettable experience. The energy and joy that emanates from the performers can be infectious, and the audience is often swept up in the celebration.

Experiencing African music is a rich and rewarding experience that can open up new worlds of sound and culture

Creating a Legacy

Aside from creating a platform for professional musicians, AfrofestSA will showcase new and emerging artists who are pushing the boundaries of African music and bringing fresh perspectives to the genre. We believe that by giving a platform to these up-and-coming artists, we can help to nurture and support the future of African music.


Our commitment provides opportunities for these emerging artists to not only showcase their talents, but also to give them the opportunity to work with, and learn from veteran musicians on our festival stage. By doing so, we hope to expose them to new audiences and help them to build their fanbase.


By investing in new talent and nurturing the future of African music, we hope to ensure that this rich and diverse genre continues to thrive for generations to come. We believe that by creating a space for artists to express themselves and connect with audiences, we can help to keep the spirit of African music alive and vibrant.
