Kilifi NYE 2018-19: a New Year’s Eve You Will Never Forget

Kilifi New Year is a boutique house, alternative and reggae music festival with an African twist held in Kilifi town on the coast of Kenya from 30th December 2018 to 2nd January 2019. The festival is set on 20 acres of pristine lush plateau, home to secret wild orange and lemon orchards, bamboo forests and thousand year-old baobabs in the upper reaches of Takaungu Creek on the Indian Ocean.

The festival is a melting pot of global cultures, a brilliant source of inspiration and a haven for freedom of expression, with a strong commitment to conscious living and sustainability. Kilifi New Year melds creativity with nature, to convey the connection we have with one another, with our environment and community. The festival culminates with the burning of a large wooden sculpture symbolizing new beginnings and our shared optimism for a brighter future bringing together the community of Kilifi and festival goers for a moving spectacle.

Kilifi New Year 2019 will feature locally sourced, organic food stalls, Kenyan Brews, juices and cocktails, Vendors of local food, fashion, art and craft, Workshops and classes promoting conscious and sustainable living, as well as a rejuvenating Water Park!  Kilifi New Year has something for everyone and is an immersive experience like no other!”
