Independence Day is fast approaching and the perfect events showcasing our heritage is back and this time bigger and better.
The increasingly buzzing beach revelry, Asabaako Music Festival is set to make a glorious comeback this March after a success last year.
Asa Baako – One Dance, is an international music and arts festival celebrating the very best in African and African-inspired music and culture.
Listed by the UK’s Metro newspaper as one of the top three music festivals in Africa, Asa Baako is a unique, exciting and forward-thinking experience that takes festival goers through a journey of new and classic African beats and rhythms, over three days and two nights of outdoor parties and concerts.
This year, the event will launch with a party on March 2nd and all the way through to the 6th of March with a lot of mad fun.
The stunning beach and jungle location of Busua, near Takoradi in Ghana’s Western Region, will host over 5,000 people for a program of live music, sound systems, parties, open-mics, surfing, treks, tours, yoga, football & volley ball tournaments, talks, conservation workshops, BBQs and boat trips; not to mention live music on the beach by day and the legendary Asa Baako jungle party at night.
Access to the festival is free, but ticket would be sold for some special parties. Air Conditioned buses will also be available from Accra to take people direct to and from the festival, as well as VIP packages with transport and accommodation.
