Two key cultural events

To ensure the summit is as inclusive and unifying as possible, two unmissable events have been organized offering the opportunity for more informal meetings: a match between Africa and France at the Matmut Atlantique stadium and an urban music concert at Place des Quinconces.

Building bridges through sport

To celebrate the Summit, the Matmut Atlantique stadium will host a friendly match between an African team and a French team on Friday 5 June. All of the Heads of State, government officials and their ministerial delegations will attend this special occasion.

Bringing culture to life

African musicians from a variety of backgrounds will proudly represent music from their continent at an open-air concert for 40,000 people.
