Cape Town - Combine Southern Africa's biggest artists, the world’s greatest adventures and adrenalin-filled activities, with a New Year’s countdown like nowhere else on earth and you have arrived at the world-renowned Jameson Vic Falls Carnival.


The festival will be taking place from 29 December to 31 December in Vic Falls, Zimbabwe.

The line-up:

This year’s carnival is set to take over the town of Vic Falls as the festival returns for its fourth edition along with SA’s top electronic trio and returning headline act, Goodluck, and pop musos, Locnville, for their first Jameson Vic Falls Carnival performance. Festival-goers are sure to dance the night away into 2017 with the chart-topping beats of producer DJ Sketchy Bongo and Cape Town’s live electronic duo, The Kiffness

Adding to this impressive line-up is multi-award winning, platinum selling artist Tresor, hailing from the Congo, Tresor has beaten the odds, starting out as a car guard he has carved a path for himself as a successful producer and singer collaborating with the likes of AKA, The Soil, Khuli Chana and Beatenberg. SA’s hardest working reggae band, Tidal Waves, will ring in the New Year with their original reggae music intertwined with traditional African music influences like Maskandi and Mbaqanga. 

We’re happy to welcome back hugely popular Zim locals, Judgement Yard. This collective always brings the electricity with their high-energy dancehall, reggae routine. ZiFM DJ and Hidden Culture founder Jason le Roux, SA’s Half ‘n Half, and Train Party regulars DJ Francis and Diloxclusiv complete the announced line-up.
