The Vic Falls Carnival is inarguably the biggest New Year party of the year in the African continent where party and show lovers cannot have enough fun in three days!

Music lovers have described Victoria Falls, in Zimbabwe where the show is held every year, as ‘paradise on earth’ with the creme-de-la-creme in the music industry; both local and international, driving eager party goers into a frenzy with their electrifying performances.

On the decks, the best names in the music scene in the world are usually on top of things during the three-day event which starts on December 29. It is this day that brings Victoria Falls, a serene town in Zimbabwe to life as thousands throng the town for the Vic Falls Carnival.

What’s fascinating about the Vic Falls Carnival is the all-time train party held on the first day where the DJs treat you to the best lyrics from Southern Africa and the globe by extension before taking it a notch higher by taking it to the bush and here, music, dancing, drinks and endless fun goes all the way until late in the night.

The Electric Safari Concert crowns day two of the Vic Falls Carnival. In-house live performances with a blend of African, Indian and electro-pop mix in the music is nothing short of exhilarating! The crowd whose expectations of the show are first whipped up by renowned musical names from South Africa set the stage for an all-night-long musical party.

It is also during the second day of the carnival when the streets of Victoria Falls host numerous community parties.

On the eve of New Year which marks the third and last day of the party; the anticipation and anxiety with which the attendees look forward to this day are, to say the least. This is the day when stellar performances rock the waves with both local and international musicians treating their fans to the best they can offer as they usher in a new year.
