CAIRNS AFRICAN FESTIVAL 2021

Before purchasing tickets, please read the Covid Safe Terms and Conditions of Sale, which are in addition to the regular Ticketlink Terms and Conditions of Sale

Brought to you by the Cairns African Association, the Cairns African Festival welcomes the entire Cairns region to celebrate and share in the amazing African culture.

The Festival incorporates a day of workshops, food, arts and craft stalls as well the main stage program which will be full of talented African performers.

Apart from the huge array of local African talent that will be on show, standout acts of the Festival this year are the Afro Kick band, a Congolese Soukous band based in Brisbane, plus the internationally acclaimed Epizo Bangoura of Guinea who will also facilitate the drum workshops.

The 7 piece Afro Kick band will have everyone on the dance floor with the infectious guitar grooves of Congolese Soukous or Kwassa Kwassa music. When Afro Kick hits the stage prepare to move!

Epizo Bangoura is a Griot or African tribal storyteller/ musician of the highest class. Epizo is a virtuoso of the Balafon (West African wooden Xylophone), Kora (African Harp) and the Djembe (African hand drum). Epizos high energy performance will be one of the highlights of the Festival.

The very successful FREE drumming workshops are on once again, with 3 childrens workshops happening after school in the week leading up to the Festival while the adults workshops are happening on the day of the Festival.

For more information regarding the free drumming workshops, please contact info@cairnsafricanassociation.com



Current Government Covid-safe restrictions allow 100% seated capacity. You must practise social distancing on arrival to the venue and remain in your allocated seat throughout the performance.

Generally there is no right to a refund or exchange except as required by law, or as provided in the Live Performance Australia Ticketing Code of Practice. Please refer to Ticketlink Terms and Conditions on this website.
