Tuku, Winky D to grace Vic Falls Carnival

HARARE - Music legend Oliver Mtukudzi and Zimbabwe’s self-proclaimed dancehall king Winky D will represent Zimbabwe at the three-day Jameson Vic falls Carnival that will kick off in the resort town on December 29.

The two highly-acclaimed Zimbabwean artistes will be part of an exciting bill that includes an electronic duo called Goldfish Live and pop sensation Beatenberg, both from South Africa.

The highly-rated Goldfish is delighted by their forthcoming debut concert in Zimbabwe.

“We are so excited to be heading down to the Jameson Vic Falls Carnival this year,” the South African group was quoted as saying by the festival organisers.

“We have been playing all over the world but there is nothing more special to us than playing in Africa. This will be our first ever performance in Zimbabwe, we can’t wait to start our New Year’s in the amazing place.”

The Jameson Vic Falls Carnival 2014 will begin on December 29 with a party to be held aboard a colonial train taking the revellers to a secret party deep in the nature reserve .On the 30th, four after-parties will be held in different venues. To usher revellers into the New Year, organisers have lined up a party to be held at the Victoria Falls Primary School.

Last year, the festival attracted over 5000 festival lovers from across the globe who were thrilled by artists from South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia at three different locations around the border town.

At the last edition of the festival, Zimbabwe was represented by the internationally-famous Mookomba and Harare -based Chikwata 263 while Zambia was represented by former Big Brother Africa contestant Mamphi.

The tickets for the event are already on sale. A ticket for the entire festival costs $100 or R1 100.
