A legion of African artistes have been confirmed for the second edition of ‘Lost In Riddim’ scheduled for Lake Cunningham Park in San Jose, California from October 1 to October 2.
Created by Sol Blume, the two-day annual weekend festival is a celebration of African music and black culture. It will also highlight dancehall and reggae music. This year’s edition of the Afrobeats-focused music festival will be headlined by renowned afrobeats artistes such as: Grammy nominated artiste, Wizkid; BET Award-winning artiste, Davido; and Grammy award-winning artiste, Burna Boy.
Lost in Riddim will also include additional sets by Ghanaian rap sensation, Black Sherif; Nigerian musical artistes, including Rema, Kizz Daniel, Fireboy DML, Tiwa Savage, Maleek Berry, Tems, and Ayra Starr. British acts Ella Mai and Skepta, Jamaican stars Sean Paul and Koffee, and hip-hop act Wale also fill out the lineup.
“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 US 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,” said Festival Co-Founders Fornati Kumeh and Jehu “Manny” Hunter in a joint statement when the festival was announced last year. “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.”
