We are committed to actualizing the creative economy in Africa and play a critical role in the development of professional skills, professional networks and showcase platforms in East Africa. Our work creates opportunities for players at all levels in the music industry by connecting them with continental and diaspora audiences, corporates, media, state & non-state actors.
In addition to producing our own festivals and concerts, we work with brands to develop and execute music based experiences for launches, brand experiences, , as well as experiential concepts for brands to maximize engagement at concerts/festivals.
We are capable of handling all operational elements including: conceptualization, budgeting & payments, bookings & contracting, procurement and all manner of production including communication, risk assessment, fabrication, vendor and suppliers management, health & safety and all legal matters.
Our unique advantage comes from years of solving for artists, for audiences and for brands.
