One of Africa’s favorite events to return in 2022
Africa’s most exhilarating music and adventure festival, Vic Falls Carnival, returns in 2022 to one of the Seven Wonders of the World for a unique experience, bigger and better than ever! An adrenaline-fueled adventure, an incredible setting and a music-hungry crowd, all mixed with local and international music fans delivering programming that features top talent from across Africa.
For the past nine years, the Vic Falls Carnival has always been held during the New Years period, making it one of the best New Years events in Africa – in 2022, organizers have sought to reformat the ‘event – Vic Falls Carnival is Africa’s celebration of its diverse culture, cuisine and arts and as such deserves its own date in its own right. They chose a long weekend that offers festival-goers more competitive packages, a larger selection of artists from across the continent and wonderful weather that allows you to see Victoria Falls in all its glory after the summer rains!
The artists at this year’s launch are sure to make the long weekend unforgettable! Keeping the local flavor at the forefront, this year’s event will see carnival favorites return to the stage for their African fans – South African DJ and producer DJ Maphorisa, the ‘King of Amapiano’ Kabza De Small, the Zimbabwe’s ‘Queen of Amapiano’ Sha Sha, and multi-award winning South African record producer known as ‘Bolobedu’ dance pioneer Master KG, kicked off the first phase of local acts along with many other acts from southern Africa to come in announcements for the next phase of artists.
