An all-star cast and new venue have been confirmed for Lost In Riddim’s comeback.
At Lake Cunningham Park in San Jose, California, the festival with an emphasis on Afrobeats is scheduled for October 1 through October 2. The occasion had previously been held in Sacramento. The city was picked because it had a bigger venue and offered more outside visitors accommodation and transportation alternatives.
Two main stages and separate performers will be present at the outdoor event. DJ sets will be played all day long on a third, much smaller tent stage. Two first-generation immigrants from Africa who wanted to start something fresh collaborated to launch the independent festival. In 2019, the first Lost In Riddim Festival took place.
With additional performances from around the diaspora, this year’s event expands the goal to keep the focus on Afrobeats music. Lost In Riddim 2022, which takes place on the weekend of Nigerian Independence Day, will feature performances by Wizkid, Burna Boy, and Davido as its headliners.
Other Nija musical stars, like as Rema, Kizz Daniel, Fireboy DML, Tiwa Savage, Maleek Berry, Tems, and Ayra Starr, will also perform for the audiences. The list is completed by hip-hop artist Wale, British performers Ella Mai and Skepta, Jamaican superstars Sean Paul and Koffee, and Ella Mai.
