New Afrika Shrine Carnival - Felabration Music Festival

2018 New Afrika Shrine Carnival is an annual event also known as Felabration Music Festival, the 7th Edition is scheduled to hold in October in Lagos and is presented and managed by Femi Kuti and Yeni Anikulapo-Kuti.

The festival will showcase music performances by Femi Kuti and Seun Kuti, free medical services, public lecture and other musical concerts.

Felabration is a funkadelic music festival that celebrates Fela's life, his enormous influence on Nigerian society, and the Afrobeat genre. The week-long concert maintains the same infectious energy that Fela possessed decades ago, bringing a wealth of artists from all over the world to keep the rhythm pulsing.

Local Nigerian artists and international acts grace the stage with notes of Afrobeat, hip-hop, R&B and jazz, among many others. The amount of talent that descends upon this West African hot spot speaks volumes about Fela's status as a global icon.

Our festivals always include various creatively diverse activities. ‘The Fela Debates’, symposium series, the secondary schools' debate for schools in Lagos State, Dance Troupes, Photo Exhibitions, The Fela Street Carnival Parade with musical floats and costumed dancers.
