Africa Utopia returns for its third year in 2015. The festival looks at what can be learnt and celebrated from Africa and the African diaspora.

We explore how African art and ideas can change the world for the better: how Africa can lead the way in thinking about culture, community, technology, fashion, sustainability and ethical wealth creation.

Some of the continent’s most iconic musicians and artists appear at the festival and take part in the debates alongside experts, entrepreneurs and activists.

Highlights from last year included performances from the godfather of ethio-jazz, Mulatu Astatke, and Kinshasa Symphony Orchestra, the extraordinary self-taught orchestra and chorus from Kinshasa, who performed in London for the first time.
