Organisers have announced the return of Blankets & Wine following a three-year hiatus due to Covid interruptions.

Promising an authentic, tailored and magical experience co-created with fans, the 2022 edition is making a comeback under the theme, Kenyan Summer II.

“We have really been through the wringer together as a people, and now we are on the other side. It’s time to have a good time together. We all deserve joy, and Blankets is here to facilitate it,” said Muthoni Ndonga, aka MDQ, founder of the festival’s franchise.
