Afro Wave is a party-like concert that brings together artists of different genres on one stage.
Find out more about this year’s edition.
What is Afro Wave?
Afro Wave is an entertainment company where we aim to bring out the undiscovered talent as well as give a new feel to the Kenyan entertainment sector. The wave is basically a symbol to take the party goer on journey with us with zero stress.
How did you come up with the idea to hold such an event?
All the founders really like the party scene, but there was really no authenticity in the party scene, it was all pick ups from different cultures without necessarily representing our own, so the idea came with a mix to bring on board the Kenyan creative feel as well as bringing forth the Kenyan sound.
What is the objective of the event?
That everyone goers home with Goosebumps as a first, not from the cold but from the experience, as an event also we work on making sure that the undiscovered are exposed to a new field and the established open up there wings.
How many years has the event been around for?
1 and a half years.
Tell us about this year’s edition.
This years edition is to be held on the 9th and 10th of December at the Tree House Lounge Westlands, gates open at 6pm ready for the show to start, we will be headlining H_art the Band alongside Eduardo and Michelle Bisonga who are quite the crowd favorites and featuring Djs such as Euggie who is not a stranger to this scene and Dj Bugi.
Of the ones that were held in the past, which was your favorite?
Afro Wave 2, the culture in this event was breathtaking, it was amazing to see the turnout as well as the way the acts tore the house down.
How can people find you on social media?
We are on all popular social media Instagram: @afrowav3 and Facebook: Afro Wave Africa.
Do you guys do any events besides Afro Wave?
Afro Wave is the sole event we are currently running however it is split into 3 editions hip hop, jazz and reggae which we are currently hosting.
What’s your best memory from a previous edition?
All the tickets selling out was probably my best memory, it was quite overwhelming to have that many people.
What are some challenges you guys face when holding such events?
The toughest thing is probably predicting the crowd and the reception, marketing of the event is no easy fit however as far as we go now, we are handling it quite well but not enough.
Getting to the performers contact point is not easy and that is probably something Kenyan artists need to work on.
