The organizers of R&B festival Sol Blume have announced ‘Lost in Riddim’, a new afrobeats and dancehall festival, slated to take place on 2-3 October 2021 at Caesar Chavez Park in Sacramento, California.

Headliners of the festival include African superstars, Sho MadjoziWizkid, Fireboy DML, Tems, Burna Boy, Mr Eazi, Tiwa Savage, and more.

The festival, founders Fornati Kumeh, and Jehu “Manny” Hunter said in a press release:

“We created this event to not only showcase some of the most popular international music artists in the entire world, many of whom continued to be overlooked by major U.S. music festivals, but also create a unique celebration about the beauty of African culture. The team can’t wait to soon debut a completely unique festival-going experience in Sacramento this fall. Throwing Lost in Riddim in Sacramento was also a no-brainer because not only is this our hometown, but our other festival Sol Blume has ultimately helped to lay the groundwork for us to expand locally and launch a second concept this fall”.

Full line-up:

(Saturday, 02 Oct) Wizkid, Rotimi, Rema, Fireboy DML, Tems, Amaarae, Oxlande, Ladipoe, and Projexx.  

(Sunday, 03 Oct) Burna Boy, Mr Eazi, Tiwa Savage, Koffee, Shenseea, Joeboy, Sho Madjozi, Enisa, WSTRN, and Johnny Drille.

Tickets go on sale Friday, 16 July 2021.
