The premier showcase for one of the world’s most exciting music genres, Afro Nation is renowned for its global array of expertly-curated events. Making a splash with their first-ever festival in the continental United States, the eclectic festival announces the latest artist additions for Afro Nation Miami 2023, which hits loanDepot park in Miami on May 27 & 28, 2023.

Adding to the festival’s array of high-wattage Nigerian talent, ANM recruits Fireboy DML to join the lineup, which already includes headliners Burna Boy and WizKid, plus ascendant stars Rema and Asake. The latest lineup additions bolster the festival’s representation of dancehall and reggaeton–bringing Jamaican heavy-hitter Mavado and Panamanian star Sech into the fold–and bolsters the Piano People stage with even more amapiano artists. Golden Ticket, VIP, and General Admission tickets are available for sale at https://usa.afronation.com/, with single day tickets available soon.

Afro Nation Miami boasts a deep lineup that highlights the best in Afrobeats, dancehall, hip-hop, amapiano, and other Black-led musical genres. The inaugural Miami festival promises performances by rising African stars CKayBNXN, and Black Sherif, French rapper Franglish, and many others. Shining a special spotlight on the ascendant genre of amapiano, born in South Africa, Afro Nation Miami brings the Piano People stage, featuring many more of the genre’s most exciting names including headliners Major League DJZ and Uncle Waffles.

The upcoming ANM23 follows up a groundbreaking 2022 from Afro Nation, which has established itself as a major tastemaker and advocate for African music since its founding in 2019. Afro Nation brought a high-powered group of international music stars and over 40,000 fans to the beaches of Portimáo in July for the second-ever Afro Nation Portugal, with headliners that included WizKid, Burna Boy, and Megan Thee Stallion. Earlier in the year, the innovative festival made its North American debut with Afro Nation Puerto Rico. The festival closed out 2022 with Afro Nation Ghana 2022 in Accra, Afro Nation’s first event in Ghana since 2019.

Afro Nation festivals are dedicated to providing a global platform for music from Africa and its diaspora. In addition, Afro Nation teams with BBC Radio 1xtra and the Official Charts Company to host a weekly UK Afrobeats Chart Show, and in 2022, Afro Nation partnered with Billboard to present the first-ever U.S. Afrobeats Chart.

With more milestones to cross and many unforgettable sets in the near future, Afro Nation is primed to shine an even brighter spotlight on some of the most exciting artists in music today.
