Out Of Africa: Rema, Amaarae, Adekunle Gold To Headline Afro Nation Detroit 2024


African pop megastars Rema, Amaarae and Adekunle Gold have been unveiled as part of the first wave of artists scheduled to perform at this year’s Afro Nation Detroit music festival.

The lineup was revealed via a post published on Afro Nation US’ official Instagram account.

“FIRST WAVE OF #AND2024 LINEUP IS HERE!! We’re bringing cultures together to celebrate over a weekend of music magic. We’re coming in hot this year, and this is just the beginning! Watch this space, more headliners coming soon!”, the post read.

Other top African acts billed to perform at this year’s festival include Nigeria’s Ayra Starr and Ruger, Ghanaian superstar King Promise, Swazi-born record producer Uncle Waffles, and Sudanese-born DJ Moma. South Africa will also be represented by a sizeable contingent which comprises Musa Keys, DBN Gogo, Kamo Mphela and 2wo Bunnies.

According to the festival’s organisers, Detroit’s rich history of African American culture made it easy to select the city as the venue for this year’s edition of Afro Nation US.

“Bringing Afro Nation back to Detroit, the home of Motown and Techno music was an easy decision,” said Smade, Co-Founder of Afro Nation, in a statement. “Detroit embodies culture, creativity, and pride. The energy here is electric, echoing the heartbeat of Afro Nation’s spirit. In Detroit, we found a community that welcomed us with open arms, sharing our passion for unity and celebration, giving us a home away from home. Afro Nation Detroit 2024 will be even bigger than last year, and we can’t wait to celebrate with you.”

Afro Nation is the world’s biggest music festival primarily focused on African music. Following the success of editions held in Portugal, Ghana and Puerto Rico, the festival hosted its US leg for the first time in 2023 at the LoanDepot Park, Miami.

The 2024 Detroit edition of Afro Nation will bring together the best artists in Afrobeats, Hip Hop, RnB, Dancehall, Amapiano, Afro House and more across two stages. It is scheduled to take place on 17th and 18th August 2024 and will be hosted at the Bedrock’s Douglass Site, Detroit, Michigan, United States.
