The first edition of Freedom Festival parades the best of Yoruba legendary artistes and musicians with the likes of Alapomeji Records boos, 9ice, fuju icon Obesere, Jaywon and others.
The theme for the first edition of Freedom Fest is #NigezieAtTen. No doubt the Nigezie – Xtremely Nigerian brand, has lived up to its name and mantra. Courage, Tenacity and Vision are the basic elements which we have identified as key factors that make up a phenomenon we have tagged “Spirit of the Nigerian”. We have, in the past decade represented the “never say die” attitude of the Nigerian youth in Nigeria and in the Diaspora.
The major objective of the concert is to entertain the fans, not treat them with the usual disrespect and disdain that most event organizers subject them to on a regular basis. Everything from the ticket pricing, to sales outlets, artiste lineup, security and safety measures is designed to ensure that they have a rewarding and pleasant experience.
The artiste lineup for the event will reflect a cross-section of the major acts that have stood out in the dominant music genres in Nigeria, in the past ten years. It will be an eclectic mix of all the usual suspects; pop, hip hop, R’n’B, dance hall, Afro beat, fuji, juju, high life and then some other African genres that made an impact on the Nigerian music space and the minds of the general public, in the past decade.
Venue is the Muri Okunola Park, Victoria Island, Lagos. This venue was specifically selected to ensure safety, easy accessibility and crowd control as well as maximum audience participation by our core target market.
Saturday 29th of October, 2016, from 12 noon.
