The 2016 One Lagos Fiesta is bringing explosions of music, art, and culture this holiday season.
Millions of people will party for 8 days non-stop, simultaneously in 5 locations across the mega-city, from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Day.
By decentralising the festival, key districts within the state are transformed into thriving tourist and holiday destinations for 8 days as millions of people are involved in massive celebrations across the megacity.
Last year, residents were treated to an array of the biggest stars in entertainment in locations like Agege Stadium, Ikorodu Town Hall, Badagry Stadium, Epe Youth Centre and the Bar Beach, Victoria Island.
A-list artistes like Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Davido, Olamide, Iyanya, Patoranking, Tekno, Seyi Shay, and others ensured the people had the best of entertainment Africa has to offer.
This year, Lagos Got Talent open mic contest will open for online registration and hold auditions across the state, where young, undiscovered talents will showcase their skills.
The synchronised event will feature food contests, comedy, kiddies events, screenings, open mic shows and performances by some of the biggest DJs in the country, culminating in hundreds of hours of fun and entertainment.
“The 2016 edition of One Lagos Fiesta is planned to be bigger, bolder and better than the maiden edition. Everything is in place to ensure security of residents and fun-seekers is assured. With over 40 concerts and 500 hours of entertainment, we are going to give Lagosians an unforgettable experience,” said Steve Ayorinde, the Lagos state commissioner of information and strategy.”
