Staying true to its proudly African roots, the Jameson Vic Falls Carnival has released another wave of artists bolstering the local Zimbabwean and Namibian offering, adding to the already impressive lineup of Goldfish Live, Beatenberg, Oliver ‘Tuku’ Mtukudzi and Winky D.

Kicking off the exciting new acts, Zimbabwe’s electronic music poster boy and Hidden Culture founder, and ZiFM DJ, Jason Le Roux will keep the crowds on their feet until the early hours. Providing tour support to international superstar DJ’s like Hardwell (one-time world no. 1 DJ), Yolanda Be Cool, Alex Kenji, Belocca & Groove Armada to name a few, it’s safe to say Jason Le Roux is no stranger to rocking dance floors to amazing levels, which those lucky enough to have been at last year’s Jameson Vic Falls Carnival will vividly remember!

Festival favourites and one of Zimbabwe’s most popular music acts, Judgement Yard return to the festival to entertain and unify festival-goers with their energetic blend of dance hall, reggae and ragga, From their weekly radio show to their renowned live performances this trio have a dedicated following and are an electric act to experience on stage.

Legendary spin doctor, DJ Francis, will once again get the party started with a mix of tunes spanning the decades from 60’s rock ‘n roll to the disco hits of the 80’s, right through to the latest electronic sounds of the 20th century. A regular on the Zimbabwean DJ scene, this muso has been on the decks for over 20 years.

Hailing from Swakopmund and thrilling audiences in their native Namibia for the past few years, the CU_Rage unit make their debut at the Jameson Vic Falls Carnival. Having played with the best DJ’s in Namibia, they will now energise this New Year’s festival with their Dubstep and House skills.

Last but not least, the award-winning record producer and composer Eleftherios Mukuka will bring an exhilarating cultural blend to the festival. His diverse mix of genres and innovative approach to fusion music – melting together Greek traditional music with sub-saharan African sounds, in both classical and electronic dance music form – is a welcome addition to this globally appealing music festival.

If an unforgettable music and adventure experience is on your bucket list then the Jameson Vic Falls Carnival is where you need to be this New Year’s. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and website for more news on this year’s event and an array of travel options.

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

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.

The Presets


Dynamic Australian electronic duo The Presets have been recognised worldwide for their incredible live performances, playing hundreds of shows and key slots at renowned music festivals like Glastonbury, Coachella, Exit, Melt, Parklife and Splendour in The Grass. Now The Presets are confirmed to blow the roof off at Vodacom In The City in Newtown on 3 October 2014.

Julian Hamilton and Kim Moyes met while pursuing a mutual interest in contemporary music, where they then joined the instrumental, experimental band Prop, and in 2003 formed the more techno, dance focused duo The Presets. The band quickly became recognised for their ability to fuse elements of dance music with energy more akin to that of a rock ’n’ roll show. Their single, “My People” is the longest charting single in Australian chart history.

After releasing three landmark albums in the last 10 years with 2005’s Beams, 2008’s Apocalypso and 2012’s Pacifica, 2014 sees The Presets regroup, refocus and refine while 2014’s ‘No Fun’ sets The Presets on a nihilist path to techno decadence.

Along with the already-announced lineup of MGMT, Rudimental and Crystal Fighters, The Presets will deliver jolts of excitement, a change of perspective and a new way of experiencing techno at this year’s Vodacom In The City.

Get your tickets now to Vodacom In The City at vitc.co.za.

General access: R450


Stay close to Vodacom In The City on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the latest news and updates.


Fans from Cape Town can also catch MGMT, Rudimental, Crystal Fighters and The Presets at Rocking The Daisies from 2-5 October 2014 at Cloof Wine Estate, Darling.

Jameson Vic Falls Carnival hails in 2014 at once-in-a-lifetime three-day New Year’s festival!

JVFC - FB Timeline Banner - Sponsors


Thousands of party-goers from around Africa and the world partied into 2014 as the Jameson Vic Falls Carnival lived up to its promise to be bigger, louder and much more fun.

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…Happy New Year! Truly a New Year’s countdown like nowhere else on earth, the Jameson Vic Falls Carnival confirmed its position as Africa’s most exhilarating three-day New Year’s festival as it welcomed thousands of travellers and party-goers from around Africa and the world to the majestic Victoria Falls to usher in 2014.


The three-day Carnival was a non-stop party, adventure and fun as a packed programme and artist line-up ensured visitors were entertained throughout the festival. Kicking off the Carnival was the legendary Steam Train Party Express, which took party-goers on a vintage steam train journey to a secret bush location where a party was waiting with top DJs like DJ Francis, DJ AceDaBass and Liver.

The party moved to the Jameson Vic Falls Carnival festival site at the Victoria Falls Farm School, where the main stage rocked for two incredible nights to the sounds of the impressive line-up of musicians and artists from around Southern Africa.

Zimbabwe band, Mokoomba was a hit with the crowds and South African legends and carnival headliners Just Jinjer did not disappoint, while South African bands ISO and December Streets got the crowd jumping.

For the last night of 2013 the line-up ensured a party never to forget. The atmosphere was electric as revelers partied into 2014 to Chikwata 263, Shortstraw, Jeremy Loops and Mampi, while the original pop EDM super sound of Flash Republic made sure the final hour of 2013 was explosive. Jason Le Roux, Judgement Yard, DJ Cmbaville and DJ AceDaBass kept the partying going well into the early hours of the first day of 2014.


When they weren’t partying, visitors to this year’s Carnival made sure they visited the breath-taking Victoria Falls, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and many got their adrenaline going as they took part in the host of adventure activities on offer like river rafting, bungee jumping and gorge swinging.

Certainly an important aspect of the Jameson Vic Falls Carnival was its environmental and greening initiatives. TM Supermarkets, in conjunction with Environment Africa, created a Green Village, which focused on bringing awareness to charities and initiatives involved in conservation, preservation and the environment through interactive artworks and activations.

Event organisers Seed Experiences’ months of preparation meant thousands of visitors enjoyed a world-class event. An incredible line-up, top event production, sound and lighting, bar and food infrastructure and the smooth running of the event ensured the Jameson Vic Falls Carnival will remain top of the list of the best New Year’s parties to attend in 2014.
