ORGANISERS of the just-ended Stanbic Jacaranda Music Festival yesterday hailed partners who made their musical festival a success.
The sixth edition was held at Old Hararains Sports Club from Friday to Sunday.
Mannex Motsi, Selmor Mtukudzi, Willom Tight, Alexio Kawara, and Dino Mudondo were some of the locals who made an impression.
“Thank you for making the effort to travel just to be part of an epic weekend with us. We look forward to seeing you join us again next year.
“#SJMF2023 #SJMF2024 loading,” reads the tweet.
Responding to the tweet, the event coordinator, Walter Wanyanya, shared a similar tweet.
“Thank you so much to all the partners and sponsors that made@jacarandamusicfpossible.
“Thank you to the #SJMF team for your love, dedication and drive for excellence, thank you to YOU for accepting the invitation to celebrate life with us. The City – The People – The Music.”
Wanyanya also announced the 2024 dates of the festival, which will be held from October 3-5.
The SJMF, which has replaced the Harare International Festival of Arts, has become popular with festival-goers.
This year’s edition was epic, judging by the big turnout.
The 2023 edition started a two-day educational music business workshop featuring local and regional experts.
The workshops empowered creatives as they exchanged ideas with some of the regional experts.
The only disappointment was the absence of amapiano star Daliwonga.
Event organisers apologised to the fans for Daliwonga’s failure to pitch despite all the paperwork being signed.
