Hot girl Meg and Big Wiz are serving as the star attractions for next year’s Afro Nation Puerto Rico Festival.
Making its debut in America, the multilingual fest is scheduled to take place March 24-26 at Balneario de Carolina, San Juan, Puerto Rico.
“We’re excited to welcome locals and people from different races and cultures to the beautiful Balneario de Carolina in San Juan for Afro Nation Puerto Rico 2022 to celebrate Black and African music. As with all of our festivals around the world, our mission is to unify and uplift and this edition will be no different,” stated festival founders SMADE and Obi Asika.
Following 2020’s cancellation due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Afro Nation 2022 will also include performances from the likes of Tems, Shenseea, Koffee, Naira Marley, Patoranking, Rema, Tekno, Busiswa, Eddy Kenzo, Focalistic, King Promise, Omah Lay, Oxlade, Patrice Roberts, and Ruger.
“The ability to bring Afro Nation Puerto Rico to fruition is a special achievement, as it is our first event post-lockdown. After I joined the team in 2020, we were forced to cancel our show in Puerto Rico at the last minute, to the disappointment of the team,” states Natasha Manley of Event Horizon.
Manley continues, “Afro Nation Puerto Rico 2022 is close to our hearts, as it is the culmination of the hard work and creativity of Event Horizon’s team to give the energy of Afrobeats back to a live audience. Gathering people together for the first time in over a year to celebrate the diaspora and support emerging artists is something we take great pride in.”
Tickets and accommodation to Afro Nation Puerto Rico 2022 will be going on sale on Wednesday 29 September (pre-sale 9am ET, general sale 12pm ET)
