This year’s theme is Your Voice, Your Choice, which entails prioritizing the yearnings of music lovers in selecting artistes to tickle attendees to an indelible live and affordable entertainment. While also providing a platform for the most exciting Next Generation acts, Gidi Culture Fest is famed as an avenue to experience the urban youth movement through the new school.
From Africans to diaspora in Europe, Caribbeans and Americans with Africa’s heritage. The festival is also knee-deep in promoting Lagos as a tourist destination and expose stories that captivate music fans and explorers from everywhere; hence the liaison between Gidi Culture Fest and Lagos State Government to introduce what would be known as Lagos Music Week, slated between April 15-20.
The Lagos State Commissioner of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mr. Steve Ayorinde says:
“The Lagos State Government is happy to endorse and be associated with the Gidi Culture Festival for six consecutive years.
The festival has been consistent with aligning with the mandate of the state’s Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture to use the musical arts and the creative energy of our teeming youths to further promote the image of our state as a prime destination and powerhouse of creative economy.”
In the same vein, comes the briefing of #MyGidi. #MyGidi is a documentary that divinely magnifies Lagos’ endowment, putting to rest the stereotypical narrative about Africa.
This project did see a couple UK influencers treated to a full-on Lagos experience, in hope to propel travelers all over the world to get immersed in the Gidi Culture during Lagos Music Week.
Gidi Fest is also incorporating a fun game called Street Soccer. A football tournament between select local government areas in Lagos. The winners of the competition will go ahead to attend the AFCON games happening in Egypt this June alongside a cash prize.
Tickets are available here.
With an expected capacity of 10,000 music lovers and experiential programming, you trust Gidi Cultural Fest is treating attendees to an inerasable Easter experience.
