Africa is the origin of music, rhythm and dance. However, the vast amount of festivals are still not very well known in the Western World. For years already there are organised similar and dissimilar festivals compared to Western festivals in Africa. Here is as well Techno, House, EDM, bands but always with a local African twist. You will find African food, the most beautiful camping sites, good weather guaranteed and of course the opportunity to combine the festival with a safari or hike. Strangely enough there seems to be a marginal interest yet from foreigners. I think this is mainly due to the lack of exposure so far. In this blog I will outline the top 5 best festivals in East-Africa chosen by Charlie’s Travels just to give a sneak preview of what’s going on.
