Lusaka - The much-heralded Stanbic Music Festival that will be headlined by American singers, Brain McKnight and Joe Thomas, has reached a fever pitch with music fans clamouring to buy tickets ahead of the concert billed for 5-6 October in Lusaka.

The two American crooners will be joined on stage by to Zambian singers, including hip-hop icon Chef 187, Afro pop rising star Kiki, R&B queen Salma Sky, gospel sensation Esther Chungu and much-loved songbird Wezi.

The concert, organised by Stanbic Bank Zambia, has emerged to be the country’s biggest music event since its inception five years ago. And tickets are selling like hot cakes with some already sold out.

Standard tickets are averaging K500 (US$50), while VIP tickets goes for K1,500 (US$150) and are being sold across the country, including at Computicket and selected Stanbic Bank branches.

Stanbic spokesperson, Chanda Katongo, said all 200 golden circle tickets are already sold out, leaving only a few VIP and standard tickets. Those short in the pockets can still make it the show, by taking part in the Stanbic Bank’s cool competitions to win tickets, Chanda said. 

“We would like to encourage those yet to buy tickets to get them now - before it’s too late,” she urged the music fans. 

Stanbic is giving people the chance to win free tickets to the event – the country’s largest music event - via a ‘Sing and Win’ and ‘Strike a Pose’ competition on the Stanbic Music Festival Facebook page, ‘Swipe and Win’ promotion in a number of stores countrywide and the ‘Anakazi’ words to Joe/Brian competition on the Anakazi Banking Facebook page.

Under the ‘Sing and Win’ competition fans can win free tickets to the concert by recording themselves singing a song by Brian McKnight or Joe Thomas in a one-minute video clip and uploading it to the bank’s Facebook page.

The ‘Swipe and Win’ promotion allows shoppers the chance to win free tickets when they pay their bills using a Stanbic card at participating outlets. The ‘Strike a Pose’ promotion allows fans to show us how excited they will be when the stage is open.
