The African Music Festival Network (AMFN) is a vibrant network linking African music festivals together to improve and increase their creative and economic potential. Consisting of 16 festivals, the network was initiated by the Danish Center for Culture and Development (DCCD) in partnership with Pamberi Trust Zimbabwe to exchange knowledge and share resources.
The purpose of AMFN is to strengthen and spread the expertise that already exists among festivals on the African continent. The initiative provides a framework for the festivals to help each other build up organisational and technical capacity. AMFN focuses on marketing, management, fundraising and budgeting, as well as sound and lighting technique. Their goal is to enable festivals to economically survive so that they remain an important and vital inspiration in African music and play a decisive role in the cultural industry and local communities.
