Lake of Stars Festival promises fireworks



Blantyre, March 24: Organisers of Lake of Stars festival have said the event this year promises more high quality entertainment compared to the previous events.

In a press release published recently, the organizers said they have maintained the usual venue at Sunbird Nkopola from 25th to 27th September and that it is going to be a promising event.

“The 2015 Lake  of  Stars festival  will  be  held on  the  last  weekend  of  September, 25th to 27th,  and  promises even  more  of  the  high  quality  entertainment that  has  seen  it  develop  into  a  globally  respected  event. Spread  across  three  days  and  three  stages,  the lineup will  feature  a  wealth  of  talent  from  Malawi,  Africa  and  beyond.

“Alongside  the  main  festival  at  Nkopola  Lodge, free  outreach  activities will  also  take  place  in  neighboring  Chipoka  Village  for  the  local  community,” reads the statement in part.

Apart from enjoying music, this year patrons will also be entertained by poetry, theatre, dance, art and a new interactive science display area.

Director, Will Jameson says was very excited to have the old sponsors from last year as well as new ones saying: “We are excited to be launching this year’s event with the backing of a number of our sponsors and partners from 2014 alongside new partners. To run the event to world class standards is a huge undertaking and one that would not be possible without their generous support.”

Some international artists set to perform are Nigeria’s Ric Hassani, Scottish trio Young Fathers and on the local scene artists that have already confirmed attendance are Gwamba and Danny Kalima with more to be announced over the coming months.
