As a result of travel complications stemming from the U​.S. Department of State’s visa systems issues,​ Teddy Afro and Gossaye are unable to travel to the U.S., and therefore their concert must now be cancelled. This unfortunate turn of events was beyond the control of ESFNA.
Refunds have already been processed for all customers who purchased presale tickets to the Teddy Afro & Gossaye event on our website. Refunds will take 5 to 10 days to appear on your statement.
A receipt of the refund has been sent to the e­mail address provided upon purchase. Please check your spam or junk folders if you do not see your receipt. If you purchased a ticket online and have not received your receipt via e­mail, please contact Samson Mulugeta at p​r@esfna.net​with your information to confirm your refund.

Despite the inability to process a travel visa for Teddy Afro and Gossaye in time for their concert, ESFNA and Blue Sky Promotions have worked tirelessly in tandem, to successfully expedite the same visa process for Jacky Gosee.
As a result, Jacky Gosee WILL be performing together with the legendary Aster Aweke on Friday, July 3rd.
Once again, all events will begin at 10 PM and will take place at the state­of­the­art Echostage. ESFNA genuinely appreciates the support and understanding of its guests as the Federation has been forced to adjust its 2015 entertainment schedule due to unforeseen circumstances that are beyond its control.
