Rhythms Sans Frontieres Festival: The music event giving a voice to good causes
Generating awareness on timely matters such as climate change and assisting in raising funds for aid organisations the likes of Amnesty International, this culturally diverse event is much more than just a music festival
Date published: 22nd Oct 2021
Allow us to introduce a brand new, sustainable and morally attuned music festival for 2022 - Rhythms Sans Frontieres Festival.
Appropriate for the times we're all currently living through, this open-air summertime event - set to take place on the grounds of Thetford's Euston Park in Ipswich from Friday 1st until Sunday 3rd July - is deeply rooted and determined in its cause to bring about positive change in society.
Championing organisations fighting human rights injustices, helping to generate funds for those offering aid in places facing terrible humanitarian crises, and raising awareness of the looming climate disaster, Rhythms Sans Frontieres is much more than just a weekend of music and merriment. It's an educational and eye-opening experience as much as it is a party, that allows its many welcomed guests to actively get involved in making a difference to peoples lives around the world, all whilst having a good time.
Some of the many campaign groups and non-government organisations the festival supports and partners with include Amnesty International, Frank Water, Medecines Sans Frontières and World Land Trust.
The three-day event is also leading the way for similar events to become greener and more environmentally responsible. Offsetting their carbon footprint, Rhythms Sans Frontieres has agreed to donate fifty per cent of all money made from sales of car, caravan and motorhome tickets purchased for the event to their aforementioned partners.
Onto the lineup and there are even more positive things to shout about. Already announced to perform at this ground-breaking event are acclaimed artists and collectives the likes of London Afrobeat Collective, multi-national band, The Turbans, and psychedelic groovers, Electric Jalaba. More yet to be announced.
Alternative entertainment also available to festival revellers includes daytime music and dance workshops in African drumming, Beatboxing, Street Dance and Yoga.
