Africa’s most exhilarating music and adventure festival, The Vic Falls Carnival, returns in 2022 at one of the Seven Wonders of the World for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, bigger and better than ever.
Adrenalin-pumping adventure, an incredible setting and a music hungry crowd all mixed with local and international music fans boasting a line-up that showcases the best talent from around Africa.
For the past nine years, the Vic Falls Carnival has always taken place over the New Year period, cementing it as one of Africa’s top NYE events – in 2022, the organisers have looked to reformat the event – Vic Falls Carnival is Africa’s celebration of its diverse culture, food and arts, and as such deserves its own stand-alone date.
They have chosen a long weekend that offers festival-goers more competitive packages, a wider selection of artists from around the continent, and great weather that allows you to see the Victoria Falls in all its glory after the Summer rains!
This year’s launch artists are sure to make the long weekend unforgettable! Keeping the local flavour at the forefront, this year’s event will see Carnival favourites back on stage for their African fans – South African DJ and Producer DJ Maphorisa, the “King of Amapiano” Kabza De Small, Zimbabwe’s “Queen of Amapiano” Sha Sha, and multi-award winning South African record producer known as the pioneer of “Bolobedu” dance Master KG kick-off phase one local acts with many more Southern African acts to come in the next artist phase announcements.
Following the major success of the last nine years, the Vic Falls Carnival has once again created the best way to spend three days at Victoria Falls! Travel, adventure and of course, African music, all in one renowned setting, Africa’s majestic Mosi-oa-Tunya, “the smoke that thunders”.
