As usual, Kenyans get tickets as cheap as they are sold but we always manage to congregate in one area.

In London, the cheapest are £10 per day.

In Edinburgh, tickets are £25 if booked in advance for two days or £15 per day at the door. Concession tickets are cheaper. Advance tickets come with a Sombrero token redeemable on the day subject to availability.

Bring along anything Kenyan and noice making items – whistles, drums, horns and of course….YOUR VOCAL CHORDS.

Fancy dresses are most definately welcome……!

Well, I told you I would keep you posted on the afterparties……here are the details:


SaturdayStill waiting for the flyer by email. I will upload it soon.



Saturday and Sunday – The afterparties will be in the same venue. On Sunday, Dj Edu will be playing at another venue, but I am confident Dubwise, Sparks and guests will do a smashing job.

The rest of you bloggers who will be there…….look out for me in the Kenyan flag and camera.
