A very big year!

We are inviting you to to be part of a special "25th anniversary edition".  Yes, the Afrikadey! World Music festival is celebrating its Silver jubilee anniversary this year. We intend to provide you music that will keep your feet shaking and your soul satisfied.

Over the last twenty 24 years, Afrikadey! has presented internationally recognised artists like Salif Keita, Thomas Mapfumo, Soul Brothers, Lagbaja and multiple Grammy Winner Angelique Kidjo. One of our headliners last year, Rocky Dawuni, was nominated for Best Reggae artist.

Afrikadey! also brings to Calgarians delicious food, spectacular dance troupes, provocative theatre, daring films, evocative literature and stunning visual arts.  This year's edition will take place at various locations and the finale at Prince's Island Park is on August 13 - so mark your calendar! 

We invite you to come visit the site often to see what we have in store for your amazement...

The Afrikadey! team
