International Africa Festival Würzburg


The International Africa Festival was established 1989 and is the largest and oldest festival for African music and culture in Europe. It takes place in Würzburg in Germany. More than 6000 musicians and artists from 56 African and Caribbean countries have performed in Würzburg so far and about over two million visitors have heard, seen and tasted the cultural wealth of the African continent. Together they have ensured that this festival is always a peaceful and lively get-together.

Due to its great success in Germany, the Africa Festival has inspired imitators of varying quality. To avoid confusion, the name and logo are now licensed. The dancing figures with the name Africa Festival are a guarantee of a high quality in music and the overall programme. The 27th edition of the festival takes place from 4 to 7 June 2015.
