25th – 27th August 2018
Tour the world via your tastebuds!
Attracting 10,000 people to dine around the world 2017, Maidstone’s very own multicultural celebration of food, music and cultural cohesion returns for 2018, taking you from the Far East to West Africa, the streets of Rome to the barrios of Santiago – all within the leafy setting of Mote Park.
A melting pot that brings people from all walks of life together, 2017’s musical line-up boasted internationally famed acts from Syria, Canada, India, Gambia and the Congo, and this year maintains the eclecticism and high standards set last year. Gasper Nali's Malawian one-man band, Algerian Tuareg desert rock quintet Imarhan, world-renowned Ivorian DJ and producer Mr Raoul K, quirky Japanese innovator ICHI, the melancholic Afrobeat-influenced pop of Aadae, Japanese dream freak-out tribe Yama Warashi and the enchanting rock stylings of French songstress Estelle May will all feature.
Shemomedjamo is produced by the Event Umbrella on behalf of Maidstone Borough Council, over the August Bank Holiday weekend. The event is free to enter across the three days, with the festival opening from 12pm-8pm Saturday, 10am–8pm Sunday, and 10-6pm Monday.
