Two stages for Sand Music Fest


By Sam Banda Jnr:

As the country looks ahead to Sand Music Festival this coming weekend at Sunbird Livingstonia in Salima District organisers, Impakt Events, have said the festival will maintain two stages.

Impakt Events Director, Soldier Lucius Banda, said Monday they were not adding any new stage but have maintained two as has been the case in the past.


“We have Pamchenga stage, which is the smaller one, and Booster, which is the main stage. We are excited in that we have partnered Team Entertainers as I indicated last time. They have a good stage,” Lucius said.

He also revealed that Jamaican artists Kenyatta Hill, son to reggae maestro Joseph Hill of Culture, who performed in the country last year, and Andrew Tosh, son to another reggae heavyweight Peter Tosh, will jet in the country tomorrow.

“The Jamaican artists are jetting in Wednesday [tomorrow]. Zimbabwean singer Ammara Brown jets in on Thursday.


“We encourage people to buy tickets in advance and not wait for the last day. The festival is here and we are ready.

“We have also put in enough security. On accommodation, Sunbird will not take everyone because we have more artists this year but we hope people can get accommodation in other places,” he said.

Last year, festival headliner Congolese star Awilo Longomba was a disappointment.

“This year, people are assured of the best. We just want people to patronise the three-day festival starting Friday where we will have the likes of Ammara Brown and, on Saturday, we have reggae and on Sunday it will be gospel so it’s a package,” he said.

Sand Music Festival, which has been on the ground for some time, is coming into the fold after the country has experienced Lake of Stars and Blantyre Arts festivals.
