EDL Weekender: It's Jollof Weekend!
It's finally here! Jollof weekend, that is. We've been working super hard to put it together with Ozoz and we can't wait for you guys to come through.
Here's what to do and listen to this weekend:
Here's a little FAQ, we've put together.
When and where is Jollof?
The 2nd Jollof Festival is on Sunday, August 19th at the Muri Okunola Park, Victoria Island, Lagos.
What time is the festival?
What time does the festival end?
8 PM However, the last admission time is 6 PM
What does last admission mean?
This is the latest time anyone will be permitted to enter the festival.
Can I bring my children?
Of course, but they must be accompanied at all times.
How much does it cost to attend Jollof?
- Online Advance - N800
- At the Door POS - N1000
- At the Door Cash - N1500
Today is the last day to get tickets online. After 8pm, we're taking the page down. Also, cash management is tedious and we'd love if you guys paid with your card on the day so we've added a little cash management "fee".
Is the food free?
No, it is not. We'd like our vendors to make money for their services so they will be charging for whatever you consume.
Why do some vendors run out of food?
Some of the more popular vendors tend to get hit hard early. While they come prepared to serve the large numbers, the almost inevitably run out. Be sure to check the Map and hit your faves first so you don’t miss out.
ARE TICKETS REFUNDABLE?
Tickets are non-refundable
WHAT IS PARKING LIKE?
It's not as dodgy as it was last year because we've paid to use the King's College Annex lot. It cost a lot so please do not let anyone extort you on day.
You can drive in through Church Gate Street and come out from the main King's College Annex entrance, and from there it's a short walk to Muri Okunola Park. This parking area can hold up to 700 people. It has been reserved for our festival goers and we advice guests to not pay anyone for parking.
You are also not advised to park on the Law School road because you might be hassled for money there. Still worried about parking? You can get an Uber/Taxify to the Festival, and avoid any parking issues. If you're not driving, it gives you the opportunity sample our cocktail and wine vendors.
WILL THE FESTIVAL BE CANCELLED IF THERE IS BAD WEATHER?
We will be out there rain or shine. Weather contingency plans are in place.
WHAT FOOD SHOULD YOU EXPECT?
We placed a premium on creativity with the menus and unlike #EatDrinkFestival, we hand picked the vendors for this event. Beyond the food, expect a couple of your favorite cocktail vendors and the Hans & Rene cart.
Like Jollof, Afropolitan Vibes is back tonight and it's probably the best prep for Sunday.
