Major Lazer to light up Accra at ‘SAND & LAZERS’ this December!



Sandbox Beach Club is set to host the dynamic Jamaican-American electronic dance music trio known as Major Lazer, which includes record producer ​Diplo​, and DJs ​Walshy Fire and ​Ape Drums​.

The trio will spin their fusion of dancehall, EDM, reggaeton, soca, house, moombahton, and recently afrobeats, a component they have grasped most notably in the production of ‘Particula’ (with ​DJ Maphorisa featuring ​Nasty C​, ​Ice Prince​, Patoranking and ​Jidenna​) as well as Beyonce’s track ‘Already’ (featuring Shatta Wale) earlier this year. ​

SAND & LAZERS is an unmissable night in December’s event calendar, held at the newly renovated Sandbox venue, welcoming Major Lazer to Accra for the very first time.

Major Lazer is notorious for putting on experimental shows with high-energy, carnival-like animated displays, and occasional crowd surfing stunts such as zorbing. Their concerts unfold as an other-worldly experience, with infectious music setting the crowd off to feel-good vibes. The Sandbox venue offers a scenic beachfront, a breezy night with fresh cocktails, VIP service and a touch of luxury. ​The event space will feature curated spaces, branded merch products, and other surprises.

The show will be opened by ​iPhone DJ​, ​Rvdical the Kid​, ​DJ Fui​, and ​TMSKDJ​, a dedication to emerging Ghanaian DJ talents. Diplo is one the most prolific music producers of the last decade who spearheaded the ultimate party-starters sound, putting on some of the most iconic DJ sets globally. Major Lazer collaborated on hits like ‘Lean On’, ‘Get Free’, ‘Light it Up’ which find inspiration from a multitude of sounds including African music. The group will make their third stop in Accra as part of their 2019 Africa tour.
