What and where is The Lake of Stars Music Festival?

It’s not often we get to invite you to festivals in the heart of Africa; this really is a privilege for us at Life of Riley… so grab your mosquito spray, say “Hakuna Matata” and leave your worries behind because we’re venturing to Lake Malawi for The Lake of Stars Festival.

Recently voted one of the World’s Best Festivals in the Fest300 Awards, Lake of Stars is Malawi’s biggest international arts event and takes place on the pristine white, powder-soft sands of Chintheche Inn on the northern lakeshore.

If you love your World Music, this is an unmissable event...

Expect three days of the best local and international music and arts from South African Afro-fusion headliners Freshlyground. Get closer to God through Faith Mussa’s and Patience Namadingo gospel music and go full-on gangsta with local male and female, Malawian rappers Piksy and Flo Dee.

In addition to dozens more amazing musical acts, festival goers will enjoy a host of other entertainment including poetry, theatre and dance to stimulate your minds, please your ears and shake your butts to!
