The primary aim of Fallsfest is to bring the people back to Vic falls and to boost local business. In previous years Vic falls and Zimbabwe has seen a marked decrease in the number of tourists as well as a decrease in the number of locals travelling around the country.
Fallsfest was brought about by the need to increase local business in Vic falls and a desire for culture in a starved state, and what better cause to travel then a concert over new years! Over the years we have also come to realize that Local and up and coming artists needed a platform to emerge and fallsfest was a great place for this.
We try to encourage local artists and promote new bands while at the same time attracting the people with a number one band that everyone wants to see. Every hotel, activities company, street vendor and side store will and does benefit from the influx of people to the falls. Its not all about the concert , the fun and the party, it’s about generating business for the area, putting Vic falls back on the map, and having a great time doing it.
The last 2 years that fallsfest has been going, have been a huge success. 2009 saw 1500 people with Watershed as the hit band, and 2010 was even bigger with 2 nights of concert and 8000 people bought in by the ever popular Parlotones!
Fallsfest 2011 is predicted to be just as good and hopefully bigger, better and louder. This year we have opted for an even bigger sound system and great lights display; we have a great line up of South African bands and Zimbabwean artists this year including – Locnville, Crashcarburn, The First Descent, Ghapi, Clint & Co, Evicted, Ryan Koriya, Dj Macson and Dj Francis. Fallsfest is set to bring in 2012 with a bang!!!
Ticket sales will be open on the 15th July and you can buy them in Harare, Bulawayo, Victoria falls and On line.

Fallsfest has also been given an allocation for rooms from all the hotels in Vic falls, if anyone is needing accommodation they can also book with us. There will always be plenty of camping space available either next door to the party or on a quite stretch of river down the road.
Any one up for jumping off a bridge or racing over treacherous waters? There is a multitude of adrenaline pumping activities in the falls and these can all be booked with us prior to the event or on the day you arrive.
