PHREAK OUT LIVE PRESS RELEASE

Beat Phreaks, a brand that constantly puts the spotlight on people with extraordinary musical talent are back at it! As part of their mission to champion some of the brightest acts on the local and international scene, they are showcasing an amazing lineup of Musical Talent on Saturday the 20th of February 2016. This festival is dubbed Phreak Out Live.

The organizers of the event have recognized a thirst for something different: A common-ground where serious music fans and fanatics (Beat Phreaks) get together to express that love for music and the excitement that goes with discovering new artistes or genres of music and not just what is fed to them via radio.

Phreak Out Live is creating that necessary platform where DJs, Producers, Dancers and Artistes can showcase their craft live and allow music lovers to interact and appreciate each art-form better.

This year’s edition of the festival is divided into two parts:

The Music Concert:
This will happen from 8pm to 10:30pm at Alliance Française Accra and will showcase really amazing Indie acts such as Ghanaian Budapest based artiste Sena Dagadu of Irie Maffia who is bringing an eclectic mix of Electronic/Tropical music, alongside some of the most brilliant young artistes in the local scene Worlasi, Poetra, Yung Pabi, Quayba, Kojo-Cue, King Promise amongst others who are setting the standard with their socially relevant music and great young producers such as Kuvie who are challenging the status quo with their work!

The Electronic Music Rave:
This is dubbed “Electric Warehouse” and will feature some of the best Electronic Music DJs in and out of the country at Plot 7 lounge in Osu. The Funky Professor Kobby Graham alongside Eddy Blay, Keyzuz and more will be bringing a heavy dose of bass and blasting out the best Dubstep, Drum n Bass, Grime, and House Music vibes from 11pm till late! The rave would also give festival goers the opportunity to meet and interact with artistes from the concert. If you have never been to a warehouse rave, you shouldn’t miss this experience!
