Zimfest’s Silver Jubilee: Celebrating 25 Years of Music and Culture

Formerly known as Zimfest Live, the event has dropped the ‘Live’ from its name, marking a new era while continuing its tradition of celebrating Zimbabwean music and culture.


The festival will take place over two days from 27-28 July at the picturesque Hertfordshire Showgrounds in St Albans.

This year’s lineup will feature diverse acts, including, Winky D, Saintfloew, Feli Nandi, EXQ, Enzo Ishall, Shinsoman and Sulimani Chimbetu.

Speaking about the upcoming event, a spokesperson from Redcliffe Management, said: “Over the years, Zimfest has evolved and become a beacon of cultural celebration. As we commemorate its 25th year, the resonance of this milestone echoes far beyond numbers – it symbolises a legacy of unity, diversity, and artistic excellence.

“We look forward to showcasing the very best of Southern African music, art and culture and offering an inclusive space where individuals from all walks of life can come together to celebrate, learn, and forge meaningful connections.”

The Amapiano revolution

One of the festival’s highlights, the Piano Republik stage, will return, showcasing the dominance of amapiano in the music industry. Felo Le Tee, Mellow & Sleazy, and Daliwonga are among the first acts to be announced, with more names to be released in the coming weeks.

In a bid to enhance accessibility, Zimfest has partnered with Big Green Coach to provide convenient transportation options from various cities including Birmingham, Coventry, Leicester, London Victoria, Luton, Milton Keynes, and Nottingham, with prices starting from £35.

Tickets for the event are now available, with an adult weekend ticket priced at £85, while tickets for children between 5-12 will cost £45 and £50 for those between 13-17.

VIP tickets, meanwhile, are priced at £230 for the whole weekend, granting exclusive access to the Amapiano and main stage areas. Additionally, Zimfest will return with the Sky Terrace package, offering luxury amenities such as a seated platform, private tables, and a dedicated bar service.
