The Oyé Inn & Trenchtown:

Once again we have a beer tent in the festival grounds with DJ sessions all day. Please drink sensibly!

Small tents, marquees and gazebos are all welcome at Africa Oyé.


As always there will be plenty of public toilets around the Oyé festival site.

Keep Oyé Tidy:

Let us all continue to enjoy this beautiful green space. Please bag up your rubbish and throw it in the wheelie bins and skips we have provided for you.


People are usually very honest at Oyé, but please keep an eye on all of your belongings at all times.


We all know kids can go walkabout and be out of sight in a blink of an eye, so please keep an eye on your children at all times. Any lost children must be reported to the stewards on the festival site as a matter of urgency.


Please keep your dog on a leash, they might not seem scary to you, but they can be scary to children and some adults too. Please keep any aggressive dogs away from the main festival site.

Where To Stay:

Liverpool has a wide range of accommodation from hotels to apartments to guest houses so why not stay for the weekend. For all tourist accommodation information visit: visitliverpool.com


Oyé is striving to make the festival more accessible for all. This year we welcome back Project Riandu who will be providing British Sign Language on stage to accompany the main stage acts. Our high-definition big screen also makes a welcome return to assist those with visual impairments. We have for the first time a tent designated for access information; if you need help at any time of the day, please see our fabulous volunteers here.

Africa Oyé is a free festival. If you would like to help keep the festival free, visit the Oyé Village, buy a drink at the inn, see some of the merchandise we have and there will be donation buckets around site throughout the day. We appreciate all your help, no matter how big or small.
