London will host the #ALLCONNECT festival for just one night thanks to HOMECOMING and Jameson Irish Whiskey (Mon Aug 29). To celebrate the burgeoning African talent and culture, top performers including Teezee, Julie Adenuga, and DJ Obi will be included. This is definitely one not to miss.
Since its inception in 2017, HOMECOMING has championed African talent and creatives from the fields of style, music, and sport. #ALLCONNECT London will have an individually curated line-up packed full of special guests and surprise appearances, to shine a light on the best that each local scene has to offer. This line up already includes Asake, Teezee and DJ Obi – with more set to be revealed soon. Cruel Santino and Odunsi will also make special appearances (The Engine).
Streetwear company Patta also worked with HOMECOMING and Jameson to create a limited-edition T-shirt and whiskey bottle that were motivated by their mutual love of music and the strength of community. Each T-shirt represents a different city and will be sold exclusively via ourhomecoming.com, with all profits going towards WAF Skatepark in Lagos, a cultural and cross-generational exchange project supported by WAFFLESNCREAM, Nigeria’s first skateboarding company.
Founded by Grace Ladoja MBE, HOMECOMING is a movement; igniting new cultural conversation and creative development in Africa, starting in Nigeria. Our vision is to empower the continent’s young generation with the knowledge and resources they need to inspire and enable future innovation and growth. HOMECOMING Festival is the spark that ignites this movement; a 4-day cultural exchange that brings African creatives and creativity back to Africa, and gives African creatives what they need to take their vision to the world.
Now the groundbreaking international musical exchange has collaborated with Jameson, the iconic Irish whiskey brand (who has been a partner at the events since 2018), for a unique collaborative project that will widen the circle and bring Africa’s biggest cultural exchange to London and Atlanta.The partnership will see HOMECOMING and Jameson bring together like-minded artists from around the world, as they touch down in three cities to ignite a truly global community, with the shared ambition to amplify up and coming African talent and culture.
