Liverpool Life Awful news. As the post title indicates, this year's Africa Oye festival at Sefton Park in Liverpool has been cancelled.

A condition not at all conducive to having a major music festival. Seven Streets has a statement. On my way home, I met some people connected to the festival on the edge of the field and they suggested we all keep an eye on the Africa Oye website for news of a potential move to an indoor venue.
