Every year in February the World’s friendliest Festival takes place in the Old Fort in Stone Town, Zanzibar, Tanzania.
Over 3 days the finest acts from around the East Coast of Africa perform on an open stage from afternoon until well into the night. Though there are always ‘International’ guests as well, it the local music that makes this Festival so special as it gives the visitor a chance to drop in and be made welcome in someone else’s cultural home.
So check it out some of the acts below and make an effort to get to next years festivities, you won’t be disappointed.
