AFRICA’S MOST EXCITING NEW YEAR’S FESTIVAL IS BACK FOR THE 7th YEAR!
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 Zambezi Lager Vic Falls Carnival!
Every Year Victoria Falls host the famous Vic Falls Carnival. To say accommodation gets scarce is an understatement, Vic has the highest number of homeless party lovers from the 28th Dec to the 1st of January. Let hope 2018 will be different for those who will make a wise decision to book early. Stay tuned for the Vic Falls Carnival accommodation packages to be updated soon.
For the time being here is what is in store for you at the Vic Falls Carnival 2018. Names of artists to follow soon. You can check with Vic Falls Carnival Facebook page as well for updates. Also remember its not about who is performing, it’s about that electric party atmosphere that will embrace you as you party your way to 2019.
