Falls Fest 2011

Visit the Falls Fest website here

After a very successful 2010 New year’s concert with The Parlotones, we are looking forward to an even bigger and better 2011.

Last year saw over 4000 people attending each day of the 2 day festival and the atmosphere was electric. The hotels and local adventure companies had their best season in several years and business in the falls has definitely picked up. The rafting companies saw their busiest day ever with over 600 people rafting in 1 single day!

This year has seen overwhelming support for Fallsfest and we hope to see the falls boosted even further. In Negotiations with more bands – watch this space!

See the Lineup!

Falls Fest 2011 will see the return of local favourites such as Ghapi and he will be joined by Clint and Co on the 31st Dec. We are currently in the middle of negotiations with more bands and singing contracts. So stay tuned to this space to find out which bands will move you into 2012.

Evicted

2009 was an important year for Zimbabwean Afro-Rock band “Evicted”. After recording and releasing their current CD “Place Called Home” in 2008 in Queensland Australia and a headlining stint on the prestigious international charity concert “Zimfest” in Brisbane, the band, ultimately homesick, were ready to head back to a slowly stabilizing Zimbabwe and Government of National unity.

Armed with an arsenal of powerful rock anthems CrashCarBurn was set to impressed audiences from the word go.

Ghapi

The big man, with the big voice and the big bush of hair. Ghapi first became known to the public early in 2005 and very quickly established a reputation in the corporate market, as well as being a big draw card at music festivals and clubs. Ghapi is a full blooded rocker, and has the ability to perform in English and Afrikaans.
