The independent producers behind Sol Blume are thrilled to announce the return this fall of the nation’s largest Afrobeats festival, Lost In Riddim (LIR), for an expanded two-day celebration of music, culture and community. Two-day GA and VIP tickets will be available for purchase on Monday, July 25 via LostInRiddim.com.

After a successful inaugural event last fall, the festival is moving to a new home just southwest of the original location in Sacramento – Lake Cunningham Park in San Jose, California. The outdoor event will have a much larger footprint with two main stages providing fans with non-overlapping performances, in addition to a much more intimate third tent stage with day-long DJ sets.

More attendees than ever will be able to join this year’s festivities, as the new venue in San Jose also offers more activations, immersive art, vendors and space for dancing among other music lovers during the festival, as well as more transportation and accommodation options. for travelers out of town.

As an independent music festival co-founded by a first-generation African immigrant couple, Lost in Riddim is proud to present for the second consecutive year a lineup comprised entirely of African, Caribbean and Black music artists. While the festival remains focused on Afrobeats music, even more international performers have been tapped to join in this year’s cultural celebration, giving fans a greater selection of sounds from around the world.

“As proud children of immigrant parents, we created Lost In Riddim because we wanted to provide a festival experience that was more authentic to ourselves and our culture. Something that not only speaks to us as music fans, but who we are as people,” said festival co-founder and talent buyer Fornati Kumeh. “With a new, bigger location, not to mention this amazing line-up of international artists locked in to perform, I expect this weekend to be for the record books. We really hope that fans around the world will come and show off at Lost In Riddim in October.

This year, organizers tapped three of the world’s biggest Afrobeats artists – Wizkid, Burna Boy and Davido – to headline this year’s festival over the Independence Day weekend of Nigeria which takes place this same weekend. Other Nigerian artists traveling halfway around the world to perform at LIR include Rema, Kizz Daniel, Fireboy DML, Tiwa Savage, Maleek Berry and Ayra Starr among others.

Similar to last year’s inaugural event, the festival will also highlight other popular genres of African, Caribbean and Black-American music, including reggae, dancehall, Afro-fusion, hip-hop , R&B, etc. Notable performers outside the world of Afrobeats include international superstars like Ella Mai and Skepta, both of whom hail from the UK. Grammy Award-winning rapper Wale is from Washington D.C.
