Ghana Party in the Park has announced its return for another year, taking over Trent Park in London, United Kingdom, for its usual one-day immersive cultural display and music showcases in July.
Now in its 18th edition, Ghana Party in the Park is an annual outdoor festival held in London for the Ghanaian community in the diaspora. Hosted by Akwaaba Group since 2005, the festival attracts over 8000 people, spanning visitors from the UK, Europe, the USA, Canada, and Ghana, making it the biggest Ghanaian event outside of Ghana.
On Friday, February 10, the music festival announced that its 2023 iteration will take place on Saturday, July 15, bringing authentic African, particularly Ghanaian, people and products, including music, food, the arts, and Ghanaian culture, to one venue.

While headliners have yet to be announced, this year’s edition will present exciting performances from a variety of talents spanning reggae, dancehall, afrobeats, highlife, afropop, alt-rap, rnb, and more. Whoever else ends up in the park as this year’s headliners will follow a year that saw Camidoh, Gyakie, Kelvyn Boy, Eugy, and more electrify the crowd of festivalgoers with their headlining sets.
Over the years, TGPIP has been celebrated with various talents across the African continent, and this year the festival goes a notch higher to make this African connection even better. Shatta Wale, a Ghanaian reggae and dancehall artist, was scheduled to headline last year but cancelled on the day of the festival. Highlife and hip-hop singer Kofi Kinaata, another scheduled 2022 headliner, canceled his appearance due to reasons beyond his control.
