Faith performs Thursday at Glastonbury Fest
Mdidi star Faith Mussa will be looking at nothing but the best as he performes Thursday at one of the biggest festival’s in United Kingdom – Glastonbury Festival.
The Glastonbury Festival started Wednesday and runs all the way to June 25.
The musician will perform Thursday night starting 20:00hrs through to 20:30hrs.
The festival will also feature another Malawian act Drew Moyo. The other performers on this stage include The Busy Twist, Headshy, Monki, Solardo and Ami Little.
Faith said Wednesday that everyone in UK was talking about the festival and that he was starting to understand how big the festival was.
“I am excited to perform at this festival for the first time and represent Malawi. At the same time, I am a little nervous but it’s all good. All I want is for people to see what Malawi is made up of in terms of music,” he said.
Faith, who Wednesday was finalising preparations with his producer Nico Bently of Beating Heart, also said that through music, he wants to tell the story of Malawi – its people and culture.
Initially, the musician, who has taken advantage of the UK trip to work on his album, had indicated that he will only have one performance at the festival.
But he said Wednesday that he will perform Thursday and Friday. He is also expected to perform at the Malawi Achievers Awards on June 24.
The BBC reported yesterday that the Glastonbury Festival has opened its gates and that fans had started to trickle in.
It further said that the early birds were vying for the prime camping spots next to the main stages where Foo Fighters, Radiohead, Stormzy and Lorde would perform over the weekend.
The biggest stage at the festival according to BBC is the Pyramid and that it was a huge honour for artists to perform there.
Several top and experienced bands have performed at this festival and they include U2 and Gorillaz.
And according to BBC, every year, just as has been the case with festivals in Malawi, founder Michael Eavis holds a press conference.
And every year, he claims the latest Glastonbury festival is better than every other Glastonbury festival ever and it remains to be seen how things will transpire this year.
The festival has more than 100 stages and some of the top artists performing include Kate Perry, Solanje, Toots and The Maytals, Shaggy, Sasha and Ed Sheeran.
