Kilifi New Year

Beneath The Baobabs, Kilifi, Kenya

Kilifi New Year is a boutique African electronic, alternative and dub-reggae music festival held under the stars and in the shade of thousand year old Baobabs in Kilifi town on the coast of Kenya from 30th December 2018 to 2nd January 2019.

Set on 20 acres of pristine lush plateau, home to secret wild orange and lemon orchards and bamboo forests, in the upper reaches of Takaungu Creek on the Indian Ocean. Kilifi New Year is a melting pot of global cultures, a brilliant source of inspiration and a haven for freedom of expression, with a strong commitment to conscious living and sustainability.

Kilifi New Year melds creativity with nature, to convey the connection we have with one another, with our environment and our community. The festival culminates with the burning of a large wooden sculpture symbolizing new beginnings and our shared optimism for a brighter future bringing together the community of Kilifi and festival goers for a moving spectacle.
