KAMPALA – Blankets and Wine, Uganda’s premium lifestyle outdoor experience, returns on 27th March 2022 after a two years’ break owing to the ban on physical events due to the pandemic. The post-lockdown edition coincides with the event’s 10th anniversary and according to the organisers, the celebration has been themed “Blankets is Me” to reinforce the DNA of Blankets and Wine in an all-new experience powered by Chipper Cash.
“Blankets and Wine is essentially more than a concert and allows revellers to enjoy live music from some of Africa’s most talented artists, interact with friends, meet new people and have an all-around great experience. As we commemorate 10 years of existence, we intend to reinforce the essence of this event and deliver a memorable experience for everyone who attends,” said Chantal Ngenzi, General Manager at House of DJs.
This year’s event will feature musicians from the afro-beat genre in live music performances, food and drinks courts, pop-up market and games at the Lugogo Cricket Oval. Local and international performances from Uganda and around Africa will headline the event, including Spice Diana, Zex Bilangilagi among others and popular DJs like DJ Alisha and Dj Bankrobber. On the international scene, musicians like Uncle Waffles (South Africa), Nviiri the Story Teller (Kenya) and Bruce Melodie (Rwanda) are confirmed to attend.
