Speaking on the event, founder, Chin Okeke says,

Gidi Fest is a music festival that defines the progression of music and urban youth culture in Africa. The festival was naturally born in Lagos because the city is the melting pot of the continent, yet it maintains a global outlook. Our lineup represents the current crop of African music stars.”

This year the Flow with The Beat competition is back by popular demand, giving up and coming talent a chance to perform live on the Gidi Fest 2016 stage and feature in the Gidi Cypher with festival artists.
