 The Freetown Music Festival is a showcase of music, dance and design in Sierra Leone, West Africa.

Supporting emerging and established artists, we develop opportunities in the performing arts by organising a large-scale festivla of culture in March and other local initiatives throughout the year.

We believe in the power of the arts, and the importance to invest in the craft of live performance and the creative community of Freetown. It is important to us that the festival is accessible to everyone, which is why we charge the equivalent of £1 for a ticket. 

Our Goals: 

  • to create a positive image of Sierra Leone whilst celebrating and promoting Sierra Leonean music and culture

  • to create a platform where local artists meet, collaborate and develop their skills

  • to enable artists to develop their experience and skill of performing live

  • to train creative youth in core production and organisational skills

Expose, Educate and Empower

It is really important to us that the festival remains affordable for every Sierra Leonean. As such, we rely on funding from generous friends and sponsors. If you are interested in taking part, volunteering or supporting us, please get in touch:

Freetown Futures is the organising body whose focus is on the bright future that exists for Sierra Leone. As well as organisiing the festival, Freetown Futures arranges cross cultural exchanges. This includes music writing camps, workshops and training that link international and local creatives, with the view of creating a sustainable network that can evolve and grow. Connecting creative communities in order to forge new relationships and encourage international collaboration.

We believe that there are three key elements to sustainable growth in the arts. These are: 

1- EXPOSE 

2- EMPOWER

3- EDUCATE  

Bringing international creatives to Sierra Leone to work alongside those who are working or aspire to work in their field. Young creatives will be exposed to new ideas, educated in how to better their craft and be empowered to explore new ideas.
