Damon Albarn-backed collaborative event announces new date

Africa Express have announced they will stage their first gig in Spain.

The collective, who count Damon Albarn as a founding member and frequent performer, encourage ‘Western’ and African artists who have often only just met to collaborate live onstage.

Previous shows have included contributions from the likes of Franz Ferdinand, Hard-Fi, Baaba Maal, Amadou & Mariam and Yeah Yeah Yeahs, among others.

Africa Express will now take place on August 7 headlining the Festa dos Mundos at Xacobeo 10, Galicia between 11am and 4am (CET).

The names of the performers are yet to be confirmed. See Africaexpress.co.uk for more information.
