Melbourne celebrates at the 2017 African Music and Cultural Festival

Now in its fourth year, the African Music Cultural Festival (AMCF) has continued to deliver non-stop entertainment for the people of Melbourne.

The whole day family event is filled with entertainment activities ranging, from dance, fashion, music, spoken word and drumming which is spiced up with a mouthwatering array of cuisines from across the continent.

Held in Melbourne’s Federation Square, the event attracted over 40,000 visitors and went on until late in the night.

AMCF promotes cross-cultural awareness, mutual respect, understanding and unity, whilst providing locals and visitors with a unique opportunity to experience the rich cultural offerings of the African continent.

“This year we were delighted to have food stalls from all corners of Africa including Mauritius, Egypt, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Ghana, Senegal, Cameroon and Nigeria” said AMCF Chairperson Fred Alale.

SALT Magazine would like to congratulate the event organisers and is looking forward to participating in the 2018 event!
