Easter 2022

As part of our mission to maintain a year-round festival culture in Kilifi, and following a Sold Out New Year Revival, we are proud to announce: Beneath The Baobabs Live; a 1 day show dedicated to Live Kenyan Music on Saturday 16th April, 2022.

Beneath The Baobabs Live will open its gates at 2pm on Easter Saturday, 16th April with 2 Stages programmed until 10am the following day. Live music is one of our great loves as festival producers and we have a vision to grow our Easter plan to become one of the most prestigious Live music events in the East African calendar.

The program will begin on our beautiful new Twisted Fig Stage facing the majestic Baobab Deck. Soul singers Njoki Karu and Lisa Oduor-Noah, will blend with the Afro-fusion of Labdi and Ayrosh, building up to a climax with headline shows by Octopizzo and Blinky Bill.

The festival will also be presenting the music of Kenya’s North Coast with our Mijikenda Disco Stage, featuring the Giriama Sounds of Simba Wanga and Watamu’s local hero Mr. Bado and his Mwanzele group.

Phase 2 of our Revival is in place, are you ready to rise with us?

A PROUDLY KENYAN DESTINATION FESTIVAL

The Beneath the Baobabs Festival’s mission is one of transformation, through uniting people of all backgrounds, by providing a safe platform, even for the most marginalised of communities, to enjoy established and emerging East African Music, Art, Performance and Wellness, and for debates on Sustainability and Ethical topics for open dialogue between communities. Beneath the Baobabs Festival is a proudly Kenyan Destination Festival, uniting the rising counter culture movement of East Africa for a celebration like no other!

MADE BEAUTIFUL BY GREAT PARTNERS

Musically the festival showcases the most exciting East-African music of the year, with non-stop music from the 30th December to 2nd January on our Funktion One sound systems, powering stages lit by our lighting partners Aurora Africa. Previous festivals have featured artists such as Blinky Bill, Kampire, Suraj, Ochungulo Family and Faizal Mostrixx; who have been supported by international acts such as Da Capo, Osunlade, Nickodemus and Gato Preto. The focus of our bookings is to showcase the emerging and established scenes of East Africa, with breakthrough artists, live bands, acoustic acts and alternative producers often found performing on concealed stages throughout the 3 days. We represent each subculture of the East African underground music scene as best we can every year.
