“‘Trace Made In Africa’ is also about joining efforts with Trace across all markets, as they are an unparalleled voice for culture, education, entertainment, inclusion, and diversity for Africans around the world. For this event, Apollon has also partnered with the Portuguese authorities who will be highly represented by the Municipality of Porto, the Tourism Office for Porto, and The North of Portugal. We will demonstrate to the world that Portugal’s reputation as a leading tourism destination is well deserved. We will offer our fans the best time of their life along with the great quality of services, safety and security”, said the festival’s director Marco Azevedo, who has organized some of the biggest festivals in the world.”
Speaking on the inspiration behind “Trace Made In Africa”, Olivier Laouchez, co-founder and executive chairman of Trace says “Nothing can replace a live experience to feel the power of the African and Caribbean artists and cultures. Apollon and Trace share the same values around Respect, Authenticity and Passion. These values will be core to this first edition of “Trace Made In Africa” in this amazing and welcoming city of Porto. Thanks to this event, we will take Trace’s mission – to Entertain and Empower our People – to the next level. “Trace Made in Africa” is a true reflection of what our People want: an amazing moment of music celebration and a unique opportunity to experience the many cultural disciplines they love – dance, art, fashion, food etc. – that will be offered during the festival!”
