Felabration Festival 2023 at Freedom Park Lagos
October 9 @ 4:00 pm - October 15 @ 1:00 amNaira1000
On behalf of the Felabration Committee at Freedom Park, I am excited to extend an invitation to the general public for Felabration 2023 – an incredible annual celebration of the iconic Nigerian musician and human rights activist, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
Felabration is not just a festival; it’s a movement that reverberates the essence of Afrobeat, a genre that Fela introduced and popularized. As a platform that champions social justice, freedom, and pan-Africanism, Felabration intertwines music, art, culture, and education into a week-long event that embodies Fela’s values.
Scheduled to take place from Monday, 9th October to Sunday, 15th October. Felabration 2023 will unfold at the vibrant Freedom Park in Lagos. We are expecting a diverse crowd of over 5,000 attendees, uniting from Nigeria and around the globe. The festival will feature electrifying performances by both local and international artists, captivating exhibitions, and more.
This year will mark the 85th posthumous birthday and 26 years after the demise of Fela Anikulapo Kuti. The Felabration Committee for Freedom Park plans to have intellectual and fun engaging presentations of Documentaries, Exhibitions, Music, Arts & Culture aptly sub-themed “UNDERGROUND SYSTEM”. The title of Fela’s last album (1992) demonstrates the resilience of the human spirit. In line with this agenda, we decided to retain the sub-theme for the third (3rd) year, in addendum to this year’s general theme, “Question Jam Answer.”
We sincerely hope to have you join us at Felabration 2023 as we come together to celebrate Fela’s indomitable spirit, music, and enduring legacy.
We look forward to receiving you, and you may also call to book your bunch of tickets ahead of the festival.
See you there!
