Maiden edition  of “This Is New Africa” (TINA) Festival will take place on 4th January 2019 at Round Pavilion, Trade Fair in Accra.

A new African sound has captured the attention of the world in recent years.  The sound has gained millions of followers from every corner of the globe. African music is fast becoming a force to be reckoned in the global music scene.  

The aim of the annual TINA Festival is to become the home of this sound and music genre.  It will be the place where people go to experience the genuine lifestyle that comes with the music.  

The festival will be a day party populated with a market fair and activities, and then an evening concert with performances from Afro beat pioneer Fuse ODG, Sarkodie - one of Africa's greatest hip-hop artists, Stefflon Don, Joey B, Lethal Bizzle and many more.
TINA Festival will be to Afro beat what Glastonbury is to Rock music.  Beyond the music and the lifestyle, the festival will also promote the continent and Ghana in particular; becoming a catalyst for tourism and investment. 

Global Afro beat superstar Fuse ODG helped to create the TINA Festival. As one of the leading pioneers of the sound, he has been using his music and influence to promote Ghana and Africa in a way that has never been done before.

He is famous not only for his music and helping the rise of Afro beat world-wide but also for his tireless commitment to re-educate how Africa is perceived in the world. 

Fuse’s efforts to spread this message have allowed him to connect with a variety of artists worldwide making him the first Ghanaian to receive a Grammy Award.  

He has invited global superstars such as Ed Sheeran to stay with him in Accra and gained an experience of Ghana aimed at changing global perceptions.

It is in that same vision that has led to the creation of the TINA Festival.

In re-uniting the Global African Diaspora, TINA Festival will be part of wider series of events over three days held at Ghana’s most iconic venues.
