The next Afrovibes UK Festival will take place in October 2016

Preparations for the festival are already underway and in July, a group of artists and venue managers spent two weeks in South Africa - both in Johannesburg and at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown.

Click here to see photos and footage from the trip and also to read about some of the work we saw.

The next festival will build on the success of the 2014 festival which, supported by Arts Council England and the SA / UK Seasons, played in 17 locations in 9 cities, featuring over 50 South African performers in ten different productions.

If you missed the festival, here are some of the highlights of Afrovibes 2014.
