Zomba City Festival, a 4-day event held across 8 venues in the city took place at the end of April this year and was topped off with a free party on the Gymkhana grounds, sponsored by Castel Malawi. The festival brought together people from all walks of life to celebrate the culture, nature and heritage of Zomba.
The festival featured a wide range of performances by some of the most talented artists in Malawi, including Keturah, Dali, Trappy, Nthondwa, Leslie, Dj Malaria & Queen Fayah. In addition to the musical performances, festival-goers were also treated to the impressive skills of acrobats and fire breathers between sets.
The festival showcased the unique beauty of Zomba, highlighting the city’s rich culture and history. It provided a platform for local artists to showcase their talents and for attendees to experience the city’s vibrant community.
The organisers have already released next years dates, with the event scheduled to fall over the last weekend in April, with the dates confirmed as 26 – 28 April 2024.
“We’re already looking forward to next year’s festival,” Dereck Nyirenda added. “We can’t wait to bring everyone back together for another celebration of Zomba’s music, art, and culture.”
Zomba City Festival was made possible thanks to the support of Sounds Connect fund & Castel Malawi, as well as the hard work of the festival’s organisers and volunteers. The festival would not have been possible without their dedication and commitment.
