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.
