Last year’s Miombo Magic music festival proved a hit with the crowds that left town to soak up the sounds and scenery over a beautiful weekend in Christon Bank. Harare News spoke to organiser, Gus Le Breton, to find out about this year’s event.
What can people expect from Miombo 2015?
People can expect a vibey, family-friendly festival in the beautiful bush of Christon Bank. If they bring their tents and camp overnight, they can also expect to wake up to the dulcet tones of a piano and saxophone, the smell of frying bacon and brewing coffee, and the prospect of a second day lazing in the sun enjoying some of the finest musicians in Zimbabwe.
What acts can we look forward to?
Lots of acts to really look forward to. The exceptional vocals of global music stars Mokoomba, the uptempo energy of Ammara Brown, the unique sounds of returning homeboys Kamikaze Test Pilots, Alexio and the Shades of Black, Tariro neGitare, Rob Burrell and rising star singer-songwriter Gemma Griffiths. Amongst many others.
Any advice for festival goers?
Come early (gates open at 10am on Saturday), bring a tent, plan to spend the whole weekend, bring your party vibes and have fun.
Tickets available online (www.miombomagic.paynow.co.zw) or at Folios bookstore in Borrowdale. Price $35 for Saturday, $30 for Sunday, or $50 for the whole weekend.
