The summer sensation returns

Afro Nation 2020 has been postponed until 1st - 3rd July 2021. This is following the Portuguese government's ban on events until 30th September in response to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. You can read the full statement from the festival here.

All tickets will remain valid for 2021's edition, however, festival-goers who are unable to attend are able to resell their ticket via Festicket, which is Afro Nation's official resale platform. All customers will be emailed information on how to do this.

Resale tickets to Afro Nation 2021 will be available here for fans wishing to secure their tickets to next year's edition.

Set on the beautiful Praia da Rocha, just two miles south of Portimão in Portugal, among the abandoned ruins of a 17th century fort, Afro Nation Festival brings top quality Afrobeats, hip hop, dancehall, bashment and R&B to the thousands of music lovers who've made the journey to the Algarve.

Known as the biggest urban music beach festival in Europe, Afro Nation Portugal boasted the likes of Davido, Wizkid, Burna Boy, Femi Kuti, D'banj and Busy Signal at its debut edition, with other events in Ghana and Puerto Rico across the year hosting similarly star-studded lineups.

Alongside the main festival programme is the chance to attend boat parties and private beach parties, with an array of DJs spread across the weekend providing the perfect summer soundtrack. And with tickets for the debut edition selling out in less than 24 hours, the festival is already established on many music fan's bucket lists.

Afro Nation Fest will take place on Portimao’s main beach, Praia da Rocha.
