For this year’s festival, MIF launches a new collaboration with the pioneering Homecoming, an independent Black-owned digital platform and festival of cultural exchange in Lagos, Nigeria, established in 2017 by Grace Ladoja.

MIF and Homecoming will present a showcase of exciting new African music at Manchester Central with Nigerian Afrorave star Rema and hotly tipped Afrobeats act Midas the Jagaban performing live, a set from Manchester-based DJ–producer Anz, and Julie Adenuga hosting on the night.

Homecoming champions African creativity and brings international talent back to celebrate the continent’s homegrown culture – from music to art, fashion to football and more.

MIF will be broadcasting a special version of Homecoming Live on Saturday 17 July for free, -follow #MIF21 on their socials for updates.
