Find out what went down as Dankie Sounds took over Ibiza this season for a stunning selection of Amapiano and Afrohouse nights.
What do Dankie Sounds and the Knights of the Round Table have in common? King Arthur’s fellowship and the ever-expanding musical festival both unify tenants of culture seamlessly under one roof. For the Knights of the Round Table, it’s a noble duty and strength. For Dankie Sounds: it’s been 2023’s perfect coalescence of Amapiano, Afrobeat and Afrohouse music.
For the first time in San Antonio, Ibiza, this year, Dankie Sounds upped the ante – spreading the three-day-ordeal across the sun-kissed Ibiza Strip, offering attendees a perfect mix of synths, sun and sweet rum punch.
Dankie Sounds was forged in Camden back in 2021. Since then, the Dankie brand has rapidly gained popularity ever since. They started with a modest, rooftop bar and did something featuring a stellar all-female line-up of DJs. Kaz, Tunde, Jimmy and Sama, the festival’s founders, ensured Dankie filled a gap in the festival market as the African Diaspora was pushed further into the mainstream limelight.
Perfect for Amapiano enthusiasts and new fans alike – Dankie Sounds has grown in stature and gained a reputation as a must-attend event. In the past few years, the brand has secured successful partnerships with the likes of Wray & Nephews, City Splash, PUMA, Juls and UK Afroswing titans NSG.
The festival celebrates the rich and authentic South African culture, giving it a global platform and exposing it to the larger cultural consciousness. Attendees can expect an unforgettable experience filled with soulful music, vibrant energy, and an immersive cultural experience.
