Some people have regarded October as the hottest month in the country. Local organizers appear to make the most out of hosting outdoor celebrations.
Looking at the local entertainment schedule, October is a buzz with events, offering revelers with plenty of choices.
Various art critics have remarked it as a good thing for commerce, but it segments the country in terms of which event to attend because of the concurrent showcases by the most enjoyed artists.
According to a poll, the greatest music festival of them all is the Stanbic Bank Jacaranda Music Festival (SJMF), followed by the Kadoma Music Festival, The Sunshine Cup, the Zimbabwean Fashion Awards known as Style Icon Awards. Into the mix is also a show by Nigerian artist Ayra Starr who will be in the country in October.
October’s lineup in terms of events means every weekend will be a buzz.
The lineup of performers for this year’s eagerly awaited Stanbic Bank Jacaranda Music Festival has been revealed and is set to take place from October 6th – 8th .These are inclusive of Chiweddar, DJ Jason Le Roux Mrurmba Pitch, Daliwong, ExQ , Ammara Brown, just mention a few.
Once again the lineup includes experienced local musicians who will perform on stage with up-and-coming young local artists. This will provide them the chance to network and pick up something to better their game with the industry veterans.
The concert will be held at Old Hararians again, and organisers have announced that preparations are well along and tickets have began sales at specified locations.
Walter Wanyanya, a founding member of the SJMF, explained arrangements he has laid and what to anticipate this year around.
“We curated the line-up in such a way that everyone who loves music will find an artist of their choice on the line and they will enjoy watching them on the Jacaranda stage,” he said.
“We also made sure that we covered as many genres as possible with artists from jazz music to choral music and everything in between.”
Wanyanya also said the festival has been evolving at a good pace over the years. “We don’t do annual themes. We are about music and the people. It is an annual celebration of summer music,” he said.
