#VMF2016: Vibesland Music Festival Set to Host Biggest Afrobeat Festival in America

Afrobeat music is constantly growing on a global scale. In Africa and abroad, people are gradually getting more and more interested in the genre.
Now Afrobeat music is reaching far beyond the borders of the African continent with the Vibesland Music Festival - an annual event which will catapult Afrobeat music genre from American niche genre to the status of definitive rising music genre in the mainstream music and entertainment industry of the United States.
In the United States and the North American region, Rock music has the Rock The Bell Concert, hiphop has the HOT 97 Summer Jam, and now, Afrobeat music will have the Vibesland Music Festival as the premier Afrobeat concert - the first of its kind - in New York and the North American region.
The show is expected to attract thousands of fans annually with guest performances from various afrobeat artists.
The show will position itself as the premier event for millions of Africans in the United States of America. It will feature allstar african artists from home and abroad.
It is also an opportunity for artist, entertainers, entrepreneurs, African fashion moguls, and corporate organisations from Africa and within the US to expand their reach to millions of Africans in the diaspora via event sponsorship and onsite advertisement.
One of such organizations, Transfast, a leading worldwide money transfer service solution offering cheap, secure services, is sponsoring the first edition of the Vibesland Music Festival.

The Vibesland Music Festival is a well strategized, well-positioned, and properly executed event to make all Africans in the diaspora proud of their heritage and the music of their motherland.
