Okayafrica's Guide To Festival Season 2014

Okayafrica's Guide to Festival Season 2014 features details on what lineups include our favorite artists, including Laura Mvula, Bombino + more.


Welcome to Okayafrica's database for festival season 2014– our one stop spot for details on what festivals our favorite artists are playing in these post-SXSW months. This year Tuareg psychedelic rocker-king Bombino continues to stay on his touring grind (in 2013 he was part of Bonnaroo's epic North African afternoon along with Fatoumata Diawara and Amadou & Mariam). Laura Mvula also features prominently on this year's onslaught of lineups. And so without further adieu, take a look at our full guide to the year in festivals below. We'll be updating the list as more lineups are announced.
