Femi Kuti & Positive Force

Hot on the heels of performing in front of an estimated 2 billion people at the World Cup Opening Ceremony, on Glastonbury’s main stage and with Damon Albarn’s Africa Express, Fela Kuti continues a breathtaking year with the fabulous new album Africa for Africa and this very special visit to Band on the Wall

Emerging from the giant shadow that his father Fela Kuti cast, Femi is the true heir to the Afrobeat crown, his music reaching across the globe with a powerful and distinctive voice. Like his contemporaries, Amadou & Mariam and Baaba Maal, this is a jubilant, funky music and dance mix. An unmissable winter treat and real coup for the venue – most definitely one of this season’s highlights

This concert will begin at 8pm but our Picturehouse Bar from 5.30pm for delicious food and drinks. Special Offer! Book you meal in advance and get free ‘lucky dip’ tickets for a future concert – click here now for details
