The globally-favored festival, Lake of Stars sets the bar as it returns on 27th January 2018 with a bold new event ‘Set It Off’ to be held at Chancellor College, Zomba.
2018 also marks the 15th anniversary of Lake of Stars Festival and the organization aims to both increase and challenge its audiences.
According to Lake of Stars, “Set It Off” is both a creative and challenging production. The concept takes a gender equality approach to show how both men and women underpin the creative sector.
The event has an inclusive roster of artists and a diverse production team which will bring the Lake of Stars vibes to Zomba.
"We've always represented women onstage and behind the scenes at Lake of Stars, but felt we still had a way to go in showcasing the great female talent in the industry. Set It Off is all about bringing that talent to people in the most exciting way possible," LOS Set It Off event manager Yolanda Ng’oma explained.
According to LOS, the university town will host some of the best performers in live music, theatre and poetry from Malawi and beyond. The one day festival is free to enter and open to the general public.
LOS is well respected for continuously delivering great quality entertainment with a fresh new approach year after year. The event is produced in partnership with Hivos, an organization that seeks new and creative solutions to persistent global problems.
Hivos’s mission is to innovate for social change with smart projects in the right places. The partnership came about due a mutual mission of both organizations to better the communities they are in.
LOS has lined up a number of festivals for 2018, with some taking place in the United Kingdom specifically London and Glasgow in March.
Lilongwe Shorts shall return after also taking a two year break, and the climax of it all shall be the long awaited Lake of Stars Festival along the sunny beaches of Lake Malawi 28 to 30 September 2018.
