The popular Zimfest Live show returns this weekend after a one-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The show, which will be held in the United Kingdom on 31 July, will feature local acts such as Jah Prayzah, Trevor Dongo, Gemma Griffiths, Poptain and Tamy Moyo.
The annual family-friendly music festival will return to Colesdale Farm and will be hosted by UK-based actor and comedian, Munashe, King Alfred and Empress Trish.
Sponsors for the event include Nyaradzo, Diaspora Funeral Cash Plan, Tann Law and My Hippo Store.
A representative from Redcliff Management said:
It’s great to be back after a year that reshaped the arts and entertainment sector in a big way.
We’re hoping that this year’s live event will mark the beginning of us returning to some form of normality.
Given the current climate, our priority is everyone’s safety and we’ve been working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure we deliver a safe event.
We are also working closely with local authorities and the Safety Advisory Group to ensure our plans are in line with and adhere to any new or required regulations so that our attendees feel reassured and have an enjoyable festival.
Peter Pembere, CEO of Express Links International Limited, said:
Live events have always been about creating great experiences, and Zimfest delivers the essence of an in-person event.
It is one of our favourite annual events and it’s even more special this year as we will be celebrating more than good music, art and culture, but the opportunity to bring people together again – and what better way than Zimfest.
The organisers said the festival, now in its 21st year, will feature several DJs and performers, some of whom will appear for the first time and others who have featured in the line-up in previous years.
