Meet Me There weekender returns for our second edition! A unique celebration of Ghanaian culture through music, arts and workshops.
We are an intimate not-for-profit music and arts festival held at Meet Me There African Home Lodge; an eco-retreat in the Volta region of Ghana. Fringed by wild beaches, colourful fishing villages and lush mangrove forests, this secluded stretch of coastline is worlds apart from your usual festival setting. Here, nestled at the edge of a saltwater lagoon, our little oasis awaits you…
Bringing like-minded individuals together for a unique celebration of Ghanaian culture, MMT Weekender offers a festival experience like no other. Our four-day programme is designed to open your eyes to the magic of Ghana through a carefully-curated display of Music, Arts and Culture.
From traditional percussive sounds to new school Afrobeats and highlife, our lineup promotes some of the finest Ghanaian acts as well as our favourite DJs from across the globe. Despite music being such an integral part of everyday Ghanaian life, there is little opportunity for local budding musicians to pursue their talent. We are proud to provide local artists with a platform to perform their work.
But MMT Weekender is not just about the music. We’re delighted to present a diverse programme that showcases the rich cultural heritage Ghana is blessed with. Featuring daily traditional cultural performances by local schools, graffiti collaborations between Ghanaian and international artists and a main stage decked out with vibrant hand-woven prints, the site is bursting with creativity. We also offer free workshops and activities for all ticket holders throughout the weekend. Whether it’s trying your hand at Batik printing, getting stuck into a beach football tournament with the locals or joining a boat trip down the Volta River, there’s something for everyone.
MMT Weekender is more than just a festival. Our mission is to give you an unforgettable insight into Ghanaian culture whilst also raising vital funds for the work of our NGO Dream Big Ghana.
Last year’s festival raised over £6,000 for our charity, which brings life-saving sanitation and life-changing educational opportunities to local villages Dzita and Dzita-Agbledomi. Current programmes include female hygiene, ecological sanitation (both at school and home) and adult literacy.
