Mixmag and BUDX went to Lagos from June 26-28 to offer three full days and nights of music panels, workshops and parties, featuring both local and global artists.
We hosted a range of musical acts, from Walshy Fire to DJ Obi and Teni the Entertainer, as well as many more. Lagos came out in full force to see our stacked lineup of local standouts and international stars, and we recorded a number of the sets for you to enjoy.
