Get ready to turn up big time as we approach the Easter festivities that mark the end of the first quarter of the year. Our plan (as usual) is to make every day of the holiday count and Live the Lagos life to the fullest! You know how much we love our holidays over here and we’ve got 4 whole work free days, the first this year! What better way to prepare for this period than harming yourself with our list of the biggest gigs this Easter.
There are concerts, comedy shows, stage plays, Fashion shows and so many exciting activities happening all around Lagos. We are outling these 8 that we think would be worth your holiday and money of course!
1. GIDI FEST 2018
Gidi Fest is one of the most highly anticipated Easter gigs in Lagos. In its fifth year running, the Music festival has grown to become our own Coachella and has over the years blessed us with performances from the likes of Diplo, Sauti sol, Vanessa Mdee, Burna Boy, Wizkid and has also been a platform for so many rising artistes.
This year looks quite promising, with Wizkid and 2face headlining the show! We would definitely put our bet on this one.
Happening at the Hard Rock beach front, Victoria Island on Easter Friday, March 30th.
Tickets are available online here from N5000 only.
Clearly one of the most consistent comedy shows and undoubtedly one of the biggest and most loved comedians in this part of the world, AY does not fail to deliver every single year. The event is always sold out, which is why you should book your tickets now. (You can thank us later)
Holding on Easter Sunday, April 1st at the Eko convention Centre, Victoria Island. Tickets available from 7k on afritickets and other ticketing sites.
