GOLDFISH LIVE, BEATENBERG, OLIVER ‘’TUKU’’ MTUKUDZI AND WINKY D ANNOUNCED
Last year thousands of festival-goers from across Africa and the world partied into 2014 as the Jameson Vic Falls Carnival lived up to its promise as Africa’s most exciting New Years’ experience!
Set in the spectacular town of Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, this 7th Wonder of the World and national heritage park is the perfect backdrop to ring in a uniquely African New Year. Now in its third year, the Jameson Vic Falls Carnival is back! Jameson Irish Whiskey continues as title sponsor bringing this African phenomenon to fingertips of the adventure and music community for another memorable experience.
Headlining the Jameson Vic Falls Carnival are none other than SA’s electronic duo Goldfish Live. They’re joined by the fresh new face of pop music all the way from Cape Town, Beatenberg, along with Zimbabwe’s own legend, Oliver ‘’Tuku’’ Mtukudzi and the infamous Hararian reggae-dancehall champion Winky D.
Having proved their musical credentials with a record-breaking eight SAMA nominations and numerous number one hits, Goldfish Live’s genre-defying mix of live instruments, house beats and searing live performances have made them popular not only in South Africa, but across the African continent and the world. With a long standing residency in Ibiza, the duo has garnered the support of the international music industry and has earned huge credibility within the global music scene. If home-grown electronic music is for you then this is one act not to miss in one of Africa’s most beautiful and revered settings.
“We’re so excited to be heading down to the Jameson Vic Falls Carnival this year. We’ve been playing all over the world but there’s nothing more special to us than playing in Africa, this will be our first ever performance in Zimbabwe, and we can’t wait to spend our New Years in this amazing place!” – Goldfish Live
Beatenberg, made famous by their hugely successful number 1 hit single “Pluto (Remember You)”, which was nominated for ‘Song of the Year’ at the 2014 MTV Africa Music Awards, can’t wait to perform to the multi-national crowd that this unique event draws.
Lauded by CNN as one of the top seven African music festivals to attend, the Jameson Vic Falls Carnival prides itself on being truly African, from its location to its lineup, which this year will see even more talent from Southern Africa hit the stage and captivate the worldly travellers.
