Latest news coming from organisers of the much-anticipated Blankets and Wine slated for this Sunday 15th December, is that there has been a venue change for the picnic themed music festival.

The Tusker Malt Lager sponsored event, which will be headlined by American star Jidenna, will now be held at the Indian Association Grounds opposite KCCA Stadium in Lugogo.

“Due to the current rains and several events that have been held at the Cricket Oval in the recent past, the grounds are not in the best state to host the picnic style event that Blankets & Wine is known for. We have secured a new venue to give our clients and fans the very best experience come Sunday,” said Philip Mukusaba, Events Manager, House of DJs.

It looks as though 2019’s anthem, “Parte after Parte” literally took it’s toll on the iconic venue rendering it unusable for Sunday’s Blankets & Wine picnic-style event.

Jidenna arrived in the country on Sunday ahead of the Blanket’s & Wine show and can’t wait to wow fans. He will share the stage with Toniks and Evon among other local acts.

Organisers have reassured the public that the event programme remains unchanged. Gates will open at midday and the event will go on till midnight. They also gave a security assurance to the public.

“For every Blankets & Wine event, security is paramount. We have engaged different security agencies and we can guarantee safety of persons and property at our new venue,” Mukusaba said.

Tickets to the event are UGX 100,000.

Blankets and Wine returned for it’s 24th edition on Sunday headlined by American star, Jidenna in Lugogo.

The shift in venue from Lugogo Cricket Oval to the Indian Association Grounds did not sway fans away from the Tusker Malt-sponsored event. Instead, multitudes thronged the venue in high spirits, armed with their blankets, wine and of course clad in bold stylish outfits.

With an earlier downpour, they were welcomed to a soggy ground which would later turn muddy as revelers continued to pour into the venue. Meanwhile, for some, getting into the venue was not a fun experience. It turned chaotic at the entrance later in the evening and only the lucky ones managed to muscle their way in.

However, this did not deter revelers from enjoying themselves as different acts took to the stage.

Before the headlining act performed, artists like Evon, Shawn Maine, Apio Moro, Koojo and Allan Toniks kept the crowds entertained for the better part of the jam-packed Sunday Afro-music extravaganza performing songs infused with both Afro-soul and contemporary urban music, not forgetting the DJs that kept revelers entertained as night crept in.

Jidenna would later jump onto the stage a little after 10pm and wasted no time getting fans into the groove as he pulled off an energetic performance with the highlight of the night being his earlier smash hits like Classic Man, Boomerang, Little Bit More and Bambi that set the place ablaze as many echoed the lyrics in lively sing-song.

Nigerian star Skales put up a show-stopping performance that can only be described as magical as he transported fans to Lagos, Nigeria from the surroundings of a packed Lugogo Cricket Oval on Sunday where the 23rd edition of Blankets and Wine took place.

It was clear that fans of Blankets and Wine had one agenda; to party like never before with the “Booty Language” singer as they excitedly sang along and danced to many of his all-time hit songs like “I am for Real,” “Shake Body” and ‘Booty Language’ during his one hour performance including his fresh new songs like “Ego.”

The evening also saw Ugandan acts like MoRoots take over the stage with the artists’ own unique “Future Afro-soul” music while Voltage Music delivered an electrifying performance for the crowds with songs like “Byafaayo,” “Pull Up,” and “Squeeze”, their hit collaboration with songstress Fille.

Revelers also enjoyed fun fresh Afro-rhythmic performances from Gloria Achillah, Eli Maliki, Mugaba and Herbert Ssensamba.

Blankets and Wine, a picnic style musical festival, remains one of the most popular events on the local social calendar.

She may be quiet and out of the public eye for months, but when she shows up, she leaves a mark and that is exactly what Irene Ntale did at the Blankets and Wine Festival yesterday. She brought on the “sauce” and served everyone.

Irene Ntale flanked by her dancers didn’t disappoint when it was her time to perform. She brought her A game and gave revellers the entertainment they were craving for.

The former Swangz Avenue record label based star then thanked her fans for the support and promised to keep the fire burning in 2019.

We have the photos.
