Glandfest: 6 – 8 October 2017
We are proud to announce that we have teamed up with Three Kings Promotions in the United Kingdom to bring you GLANDFEST…
Glandfest… a name inspired from a Zimbabwean slang term “Gland”, referring to England – was a brand created to change the landscape and perception of Zimbabwean events in England. We believe in our brand and we believe in Zimbabwean music and through those beliefs Glandfest will provide the diaspora with a world class event, an experience! Bringing you the very best of everything – from the best artists, right through to world renowned venues – without a single doubt Glandfest, will raise the bar!
A famous poet once said, “music is the universal language of mankind” which is why we question the current status quo, “Zimbabwean events for Zimbabwean people”. We believe that our music should be reaching further and beyond to the wider African-Caribbean community as opposed to keeping our music to ourselves. That is why we will have a line-up of artists travelling from Zimbabwe and South Africa, UK-based Zimbabwean acts and also an element which will see the inclusion of two surprise UK grime and Afrobeats artists.
PHASE 1 line-up: TAKURA | NADIA NAKAI | SIMBA TAGZ
PHASE 2 line-up: to be released: NUTTY O | CHARLIE KAY
PHASE 3 line-up: to be released 27/07/17
Glandfest will be held across three days; Friday 6th – Sunday 8th October 2017 at venues with combined capacities of over 4500, of which:
Friday 6th October: Leicester Athena
Saturday 7th October: London Lighthouse
Sunday 8th October: BBQ Afterparty (secret location)
Proudly brought to you by Three Kings Promotions and TIZWE.
