Managing Director for Thoms Park Events, Thomson Madulira has confirmed that all is set for the North Beach Music Festival expected to take place at Chikale Beach in Nkhata Bay from 1st to 3rd September 2023.
Speaking in an interview on Thursday, Madulira said that the past years most of the music festivals have been held in the central and southern parts of Malawi, hence bringing it to the north will give a chance to the majority who fail to patronize the same in these other regions.
“Music festivals are more like get togethers where people of different experiences come together to have fun, share business ideas, relax and make new friends among others. This music festival will offer that platform and unite people,” he said.
Madulira appealed to people from all over Malawi to come and patronize the event saying it has been organized in a special way to give them good memories that will last forever
“All the headliner Malawi musicians are set to perform to their best and we have incorporated a number of upcoming artists as one way of promoting and introducing them into the industry”.
“We will have raffle draws where several prizes will be given out and we would like to assure that there will be tight security, good arrangement for car parking, cheap food, beer, and also tickets are being sold at K10 000 which is affordable.
He therefore cautioned the entire public to keep on buying the tickets from all recommended selling outlets.
Band leader for Black Missionaries, Anjilu Fumulani confirmed that the band is set and ready to perform during this festival.
On his part, acting Director of Trade and Industry in the district, Thanila Gondwe, urged all business operators to utilise the event in marketing their diverse businesses as it presents a large market for them.
Among the music headliners to perform at the event are Lucius Banda, Skeffa Chimoto, Lulu, Machuluka, Driemo, Great Angels Choir, Joe Gwaladi, Ma Ninga, Spy T and many others.
The festival will also see performance of other activities like poetry, beach soccer, aerobics and water sports games.
