According to the organisers the Freetown Music Festival is “about giving musicians, dancers and designers a platform to showcase their talents”. The annual event, the organisers say, provides ground for Sierra Leone’s artists to work their craft. “Not only do we ask our artists to perform live, we also give them the opportunity to train their live music skills and professionalise their performance."
The festival also aims to celebrate the country's music and culture.
