Presented by Jameson.

Africa’s most thrilling music and adventure festival is only a few short months away and the anticipation is electric! Upping the ante this year, festival organisers Seed Experiences have confirmed the legendary Mango Groove to headline this year’s carnival!

This multi-platinum-selling iconic band continues to embody the biodiversity of Africa through their original, uplifting sound. Their unique, fresh blend of South African Marabi, Kwela and Pop influences, together with the voice and presence of Claire Johnston and the evocative penny whistle melodies of Mduduzi Magwaza, have captivated audiences around the world for decades and are now coming to Zimbabwe to ring in the New Year!

Heating up the line-up are one of SA’s most successful electronic acts, GoodLuck, who are best known for their hit “Taking it Easy”, with over one million Youtube views! Hot off their year of touring Europe and Africa they’ll create an unbelievable music experience with their slinky electro swing!

Originating from the beautiful setting of our festival, Victoria Falls, Mokoomba have conquered Europe with their wildly energetic shows fusing ethno-jazz, traditional Tonga rhythms, Sahara blues, and salsa. This blend of local Tonga and global influences will no doubt create that truly African experience our fans have come to expect.

To round up our first artist announcement we’re also adding a couple of titans of the decks into the mix. First up is Hidden Culture founder, Neverland organiser and ZiFM DJ, the all-round music pioneer Jason Le Roux. With a disregard for genres and a penchant for Afrocentric elements, Zyon Black will bring his unique brand of bass music to the festival. Winner of the 2013 DJ Idols competition, Bhana, who has now solidified his place as one of Zimbabwe’s top DJ’s will also be spinning the decks. Lastly DJ Rax who has been collaborating with major African artists & playing at some of the country’s biggest events joins this electric lineup.
