UPROXX details that Afro Nation will feature artists including Rema, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Kash Doll, Ayra Starr, Adekunle Gold, Uncle Waffles, and more, with additional performers that will be announced soon.

Afro Nation co-founder Smade shared: “Bringing Afro Nation back to Detroit, the home of Motown and Techno music was an easy decision. Detroit embodies culture, creativity, and pride. The energy here is electric, echoing the heartbeat of Afro Nation’s spirit. In Detroit, we found a community that welcomed us with open arms, sharing our passion for unity and celebration, giving us a home away from home. Afro Nation Detroit 2024 will be even bigger than last year, and we can’t wait to celebrate with you.”

Afro Nation Detroit is the only scheduled event in the U.S. this year; the festival will head to Portugal in June, where Nicki Minaj, Asake, J Hus, Tyla and others will hit the stage.
