Hangout Festival announces 2022 dates

LOCAL IS GOOD—Piksy performs on first day

Hangout Festival has announced that next year’s event will take place on September 30 to October 2.

The festival which debuted in Salima District, changed its dates twice this year, having clashed with Sand Music Festival last month and then other events October end.

“We just had to announce in good time to show that we have closed the 2021 chapter and now we are starting preparations for 2020,” one of the members of the organising team, Levison Msakambewa, said.

The festival has failed to come up with fixed dates that people would easily follow.

“We are just going back where we have been in terms of dates. We have always held our festivals in September or October and this year we had to go to November because of the situation we found ourselves in,” Msakambewa said.

He said their preparations will start in good time and that they would want to bring value to the festival.

“There are so many things we are looking at to improve but we are happy with this year’s event. We gave people a treat with music and we also had the Miss Hangout,” he said.

The weather has been harsh for events at the venue but this year it was a different story.

Piksy, who performed on the first day sharing the stage with South Africa’s Makhadzi, said he was happy performing at the event.

“Of course I wish I performed live but I could not because of the agreement. It is good to perform in such platforms because you reach out to different audiences,” the Blantyre-based artist, said.

Other artists who performed at this year’s festival included South Africa’s DJ Obza, whose performance was cold, Beanca, Mwanache, Skeffa Chimoto and Real Sounds and South Africa’s Mr Brown, who was performing at the festival for the second time.
