Entering its second year, the Ealing Global Festival is a vibrant celebration of music and dance from around the world. Following rave reviews for its debut, the festival returns bigger and better with mutliple award winning hip hop sensation K’Naan headlining the bill.

Fresh from touring and releasing his first album, K’Naan will bring his unique blend of ‘music with a message’ rap to Ealing.

Ealing Council’s Events Manager Gus Corcoran said: “The Ealing Global Festival has added a new dimension to the Ealing Summer programme by diversifying the range of music and entertainment that’s on offer.

“We received lots of positive feedback from those who attended last year so I’m excited that we’ve got an even stronger line-up for this year’s festival, including the award winning K’NAAN.

“The audience will get to see performances from around the globe encompassing a wonderful array of musical styles and sounds”.
