Vic Falls Carnival
Looking for something completely different this December? Well, Africa’s most exciting festival, The Vic Falls Carnival, returns this year for a once-in-a-lifetime New Years’ experience from 29 – 31 December 2017. Not only is the setting spectacular, the adventure non-stop and the crowd a mix of local and international festival lovers, but the line-up is an insane combination of phenomenal acts!
For the first time in Vic Falls Carnival history, Africa’s multi award-winning DJ, Black Coffee, will take to the decks on the 30th December. Sidestepping Afro-house clichés and stage-managed highs in favour of restrained sophistication, Black Coffee’s penchant is for true Afropolitan house.
Joining Black Coffee is musical heavyweight from the heart of the Congo, Tresor. A multi-award winning, platinum selling, breakout singer-songwriter and producer Tresor released his debut album, ‘VII’ in September last year.
Zambian RnB hit-maker Mampi will bring her energetic, rhythmic performance to the stage, adding some real African flavour to the line-up. Founder of Neverland and Zimbabwean local Jason Le Roux will curate and perform at the iconic African Carnival Train party, making sure every beat elevates the crowd. While Vic Falls locals, Flying Bantu will raise your spirits with their Afro-fusion of rock, reggae, jazz and funk.
Following the success of last year’s format, the Vic Falls Carnival has once again created the best way to spend your last three days of 2017! Travel, adventure and, of course, music, all in one renowned setting: Africa’s majestic Mosi-oa-Tunya, ‘the smoke that thunders’!
