Blankets & Wine presents: Kenyan Summer II
After almost 3 years, Blankets & Wine is BACK! And yes, we have been planning for an authentic, tailored, magical experience. Co-created with fans for a well-deserved come-back, the Kenyan Summer II edition is like none other! Blankets is prepared to deliver a bespoke experience that moves us beyond the unimaginable Covid interruptions.
“We have really been through the ringer together as a people, and now we are on the other side. It’s time to have a good time together. We all deserve joy, and Blankets is here to facilitate it.” says Muthoni Ndonga, aka MDQ, founder of the festival’s franchise.
Kenyan Summer II will feature an upgraded location, the one and only Home of Heroes (Moi International Sports Center Kasarani) for nothing but a heroic experience. Through a truly transcontinental representation, and more than two headliners, the festival is bringing together thoughtful musical acts from Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa.
The Kenyan Summer II edition will be headlined by Nigerian afrobeats star CKay, Kenyan super star Savara and South Africa’s Amapiano star Musa Keys. Other stellar performances scheduled include: R&B’s rising stars Wendy Kay, Ethan Muziki and The Only Rosa, HipHop’s IT man Scar feat Wangechi and Wakadinali, Kenyan/Afro-house star Suraj feat the sensational Winyo, Polaris, Watendawili will be on stage with their interpretation of Rhumba and many more.
Started back in 2008, the festival has always served as a platform for the discovery, promotion and celebration of live African music. The once monthly event series was put on hold (much like many things of joy) by C-19.
However, now things have opened up and Blankets and Wine is back to do what it does best, to bring the audience vibes, music and joy under the sun! You deserve it. Blankets and Wine has over the years become East Africa’s premier afro-based, picnic styled music festival, designed to showcase genres of afro-centric music” Notes Okay Africa.
