The three day festival will be held from 19th-21st April at a yet to be disclosed venue. According to the organizers, the hosting stage will be announced on 1st February. Meanwhile, the people behind the festival are uncovering artists to grace the occasion.

Some of the musicians who have been confirmed to perform are international stars from South Africa, the likes of AKA, Nasty C, and Busiswa. While Malawians are awaiting more surprises, others have gone ahead of the organizing team to create their own posters about the event.

Some of the fake posters indicate that American singer, songwriter, and rapper Bryson Tiller, and Malawi`s presidential aspirant Ras Chikomeni Chirwa, will perform at the event.

The organizers dismissed the posters two days ago via their social media platforms and warned those involved, that they risk facing legal action.

“We would like to strongly warn the people responsible, they could face legal prosecution,” reads part of the message.

Some of the heavyweights in local showbiz who are expected to perform at the event are Fredokiss, Kell Kay, Bossaro Music Group, and DJ Nathan Tunes.
