The excitement that’s already flying around is highly influenced by what promises to be the biggest music event in Nairobi this year. With only a few days left to Earthdance Nairobi, we are all eagerly waiting with anticipation for the event that will go down on the 1st of October at the Ngong Racecourse.
This year’s event will be brought to you courtesy of Earthdance Nairobi, 6:AM Entertainment and Epic Nation. With over 60 DJs expected to entertain ravers across 15 hours, we’ve got to hand it to the organizers for putting in some serious work. The full lineup is already out and it is definitely rich with homegrown talent as it features the likes of Beng Beng, Barney Barrow, Jack Rooster, Blinky Bill, Creme De La Crème among other great acts.
Earthdance describes itself as a world of communities, working and playing together to create a culture of peace, through music and dance events, synchronized global link-ups and social activities. It has grown to become one of the largest globally synchronized music and dance events, having been held in over 1000 locations and in 80 countries. This year marks its 20th Anniversary and the theme is “Global Shift” which advocates for building a peaceful and sustainable world. Earthdance Nairobi will itself be celebrating 7 years of the festival and surely there will be a need to celebrate.
All the madness will be contained on 4 stages which pay testament to the four worldly elements: Earth, Wind, Water and Fire. The Earth stage will host 6:AM Entertainment’s top talent in Electronic Dance Music. The Fire stage will have Epic Nation’s finest Urban and Hip Hop acts. The Water stage will represent the Underground Electronic Music scene while the Wind stage will feature Alternative and Tripped out DJs. There was even a DJ competition going on and the results are expected on Monday 26th September with the winner getting a chance to play at either the Earth or Wind stage. This is a great plus from the team as it provides great opportunities for upcoming talent; and it needs to be happening more often.
B.Y.O.B (Bring Your Own Bottle) seems to have been a huge success at last year’s event and it is back once again this year and this is expected to be a great crowd puller. Ngong Racecourse with its expansive fields is just the perfect venue as it can hold quite a large crowd. Earthdance Nairobi 2016 is set to be the Event of The Year and you really can’t afford to miss out on the fun. As with all Earthdance events, 50% of event profits will go to charity and you will get to party for a worthy cause.
So let’s all meet and unite this Saturday and Give The Earth A Dance! Get more info. on the event and tickets here
