The Inaugural Gidi Culture Festival Hits Lagos This March

The inaugural Gidi Culture Festival featuring Ice Prince, Wizkid, Jesse Jagz, Poe + more hits Lagos 2nd March, 2014.


Lagos has a new music festival heading its way next month. Organized by Eclipse Live, the inaugural Gidi Culture Festival features a stacked lineup of Nigerian pop royalty the likes of Wizkid, Ice Prince, Lynxxx, Timaya, DJ Obi, Reminisce, Seyi Shay, Poe, Jesse Jagz, DJ Hazan, Blink, Vicky Kimani, Boj, and Ayo Jay. Considering how much overlap there's been amongst this group of artists in the past, we anticipate quite a few one-off collaborations in store. The one day mega-show is set to take place on the private Elegushi beach on Sunday, 2nd March. Follow Gidi Culture Festival over here for more info on tickets along with the Flow With The Beat (#FWTB) contest for an opportunity to perform live on stage.
