Lake of Stars Music Festival

Being held on the shores of Lake Malawi from 15th to 18th October!

This year the location is Nkopola Lodge near Mangochi and there is plenty of cheap accomodation and campsites. The festival celebrates both Malawian and International acts. This years headliners include UK band the Maccabees and Malawian acts the Black Missionaries and Lucias Banda. The festival hugely benifits the local community, providing employment, and well as generating income through tourism and proceeds for charities such as the MicroLoan Foundation. Tickets for the four day festival from the 15th- 18th of October can bought in advance from Ticketline or in Malawi.

More information about the festival can be found at The festival is a very unique experience, combing music and charity from across the world in a stunning location!
