More artists will be announced later, but we can already spill the beans about our headliners...

GATO PRETO has become one of the most vibrant and extravagant, Afro-futuristic artists of the recent years.

Fusing music and culture from Mozambique to Germany, Ghana to Senegal, they will have you re-thinking everything you think you know about African music. With stunning high energetic live performances, their stage outfits, the dancers and visuals, their concert is promising to be an impressive liveshow you won't forget so quickly.

With her strong voice, alongside Njige, Agwara and Ndara drums, his dynamic synths and baselines and their combine energy, you will be dancing all night long.
