ADAA 2020’s COVID-19 (coronavirus) response


The international mega event will now run from 23 April 2021 to 25 April 2021, a delay that allows all participants to safely navigate the impact of COVID-19, and allows the international festival to focus on a collective desire for new thinking to identify solutions to some of the greatest challenges of our time.

ADAA #FoodDrinkDance 2020 Nigeria and the Africa’s response to COVID-19

We continue to face a global situation that is both fast moving and unpredictable. Over the last several weeks, we have been working hard, both internally and in consultation with key international stakeholders, to review the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on our plans and preparations for #FoodDrinkDance 2020 Nigeria.

We remain firm in our collective aim to deliver a Festival that is true to its time and to our shared, urgent priorities. But it is clear that this is not the right time.

Festival plans

While everyone involved in the FoodDrinkDanceFestival 2020 Nigeria remains firmly committed, many countries have been significantly impacted by COVID-19 and they have expressed a need to postpone the Festival’s opening by one year, to enable them to overcome this challenge.

FoodDrinkDance Festival brings people together in a spirit of hope and conviviality for a better unifying future. That is more needed now than ever, and we look forward to welcoming a world that is more resilient and unified in purpose, having overcome these very challenging times for us all.

A time for solidarity

We have always aimed to host a ADAA Festival that inspires people by showcasing the best examples of collaboration, innovation and cooperation from around the world with Africa’s three irrefutable elements: Food Drink & Dance.

We believe that now, more than ever, humanity needs to come together to remember what unites us.

That remains the collective ambition of all of us involved in this Festival.
