I can’t claim credit for this one as I obtained many of the concerts listed here from Culture Bully. In addition to the shows listed by Culture Bully are an entire selection of acts that are appearing during AfriFest as well as great concerts at Cabooze and the Dakota. I was able to confirm the AfriFest acts with the festival’s organizers.
