Blankets & Wine was founded in 2008 by rapper, singer and activist Muthoni The Drummer Queen (MDQ). The event which incorporates music, fashion, food and drink soon became one of the most popular calendar events in Kenya attracting musicians from across Africa including South African bands Liquid Deep and TKDeep.
The company celebrated its 10-year anniversary in 2018.
In 2020, in response to the global pandemic, the event adopted a film-hybrid format that streamed live on their YouTube channel with performances from Bensoul, Nviiri and MDQ.
This year’s event is set for December 21st.
