UK: ZimFest is back for 2017, and Zimbabwean superstar and recipient of the Listeners’ Choice Award at the 2016 MTV African Music Awards, Jah Prayzah, is set to headline the much anticipated summer festival to be held on Saturday 19 August at Kempton Park Racecourse in Surrey, UK.

The line-up of live performance acts also include Evicted, Zee Guveya & The Heritage Survival Band, Ard Matthews and Ceemunye.

Sponsored by Cassava Remit and Ecocash Wallet, the outdoor cultural and music festival will feature a mix of established and rising artists and DJ acts performing on 3 stages.

“We are extremely proud to have Econet as headline sponsors of ZimFest Live 2017, a truly authentic and successful Zimbabwean brand, for a truly authentic Zimbabwean event,” stated Redcliff Management, organisers of ZimFest Live. “World Remit, Senditoo and Diaspora Funeral Cash Plan are also sponsoring the event and we are really excited to be partnering with them,” they added.

Commenting on the partnership, the CEO of Cassava Remit UK, Mr Haxton Rose said, “Being a company which is rooted in Zimbabwe, associating with ZimFest Live was a no-brainer for us and we hope that this year’s event will be the biggest ever.”

ZimFest Live is the perfect place for Zimbabweans and friends of Zimbabwe to reminisce on that truly unique ‘zimbo vibe.’ It’s also an opportunity for those who have never had the chance to experience that infectious southern African vibe first hand.




In addition to entertainment, there will be pop-up merchandising stalls run by entrepreneurs selling their goods and services, providing an opportunity for all to make new connections.

There will also be a dedicated kids’ area to keep the little ones fully entertained.

In addition, a wide range of southern African and other international culinary delights will be available through independent food vendors and restaurateurs catering for all taste buds.

In true ZimFest Live style, a selection of local and imported lagers, other alcoholic beverages as well as soft drinks will be on sale throughout the day.

All in all, the festival promises to serve up a superb slice of musical and cultural heaven.

About the venue:

Kempton Park Racecourse sits on over 200 acres of flat grassland surrounded by woodland and two lakes. It is located 16 miles south-west of central London, has its own train station - Kempton Park - with trains coming in from London Waterloo, and is close to Heathrow airport, making it easy to reach by public transport or car. This makes it easily accessible to festival lovers coming from all corners.
