ESFNA's 32nd Annual Soccer Tournament & Festival

The Ethiopian Sports Federation in North America (ESFNA) would like to provide a first-hand update of the lineup changes for this year, as a courtesy to our guests. Our goal is to eliminate any potential confusion from the dissemination of conflicting information regarding changes to ESFNA's 2015 entertainment lineup.

Echostage, Washington DC's largest dedicated concert venue, remains the official venue for all ESFNA entertainment events from Thursday, July 2nd through Saturday, July 4th. Doors will open at 10 PM for every event. The address to Echostage is provided below:

2135 Queens Chapel Rd NE
Washington, DC 20018

The Saturday Closing Night Show remains unchanged and the Friday Night Concert will feature Jacky Gosee and the legendary Aster Aweke. These shows will go on as previously scheduled. The Thursday concert has been cancelled.

Teddy Afro and Gossaye are unable to travel to the U.S. and therefore their concert was cancelled. This unfortunate turn of events was beyond the control of ESFNA.

In place of the Teddy Afro and Gossaye are unable to travel to the U.S. and therefore their concert was cancelled. This unfortunate turn of events was beyond the control of ESFNA.

In place of Teddy Afro and Gossaye concert, ESFNA announces that a Unity DJ Party will be held tonight, featuring DJ Mamush, DJ Luda, DJ Armageddon and additional prominent DJ's in partnership with Team Cheb Cheb DMV and Addis All-Stars.

Once again, all events will begin at 10 PM and will take place at the state-of-the-art Echostage.
