OkayAfrica—the largest destination connecting a global audience to African culture through authentic content and immersive experiences—fills Damrosch Park with the spirit of African soul and the rhythms of chart-topping club music. DJ Poizon Ivy, official DJ of the Dallas Mavericks and the first female mixer to grace the airwaves at her local radio station, kicks things into high gear with her irresistible Afrobeats and multicultural mixes. Then Nigerian singer-songwriter Adekunle Gold and his band, The 79th Element, take over the stage with their signature blend of urban high-life and pop-infused songs. Proudly weaving together Yoruba, English and Pidgin English, Gold’s soulful Afropop will keep you feeling inspired all night long.
