In 1855 when David Livingstone decided to toast to the queen at the turn of the New Year the spirit of celebration was established in Zimbabwe. The first formal music festival in Vic Falls started in 2009 with Falls Fest, which continued until 2011 when it became the legendary Vic Falls Carnival!
Get dressed up in traditional African fabrics, paint your faces and bring masks for a journey unlike any other through the African bush veld with legendary DJ Francis onboard as you speed past lions and elephants. The train stops in a secret bush location in the Vic Falls wildlife park for an unforgettable night under the stars with back to back DJ’S including Neverland founder DJ Jason LeRoux.
Start your New Year's celebration early with an electric night of the best in live house, African, indie and electro-pop. What’s the best way to get warmed up? With a strong piping hot mix from Africa's biggest artist Black Coffee headlining the night with many more artists to be announced. The action doesn’t stop there, head down into town for a host of parties at popular local venues like Shoestrings.
Bring your own flags, paint your face in your home colours and represent your roots as we all come together to countdown to 2018. There's absolutely no better way to see in the New Year than in Vic Falls, One of the Seven Wonder's of the World with non-stop entertainment. Jam until the sun comes up with a host of amazing artists including Tresor, the music sensation from the heart of the Congo, the kings of energetic must-dance-to live performance The Kiffness, Zambian queen of dancehall Mampi, local Vic Falls Flying Bantu and many more. Ring in the countdown with thousands of adventure loving travellers from all over the world, fire breathers, traditional dancers and experience a once-in-a-lifetime New Year's!
The excitement doesn’t stop at the festival grounds spend your days white water rafting, bungee jumping, on an elephant back safari or sip on a cocktail whilst you watch the vulture feeding at Safari Lodge.
