Festival History

ZimFest Live has grown from humble beginnings to become one of the biggest and most anticipated African festivals on the festival calendar. Starting in 2001, in a field behind Wandsworth Prison in south-west London, the festival has spread its magic round the world to Cape Town, Perth, Brisbane and Oslo. 

The festival now comes back to the UK as ZimFest Live under new management by Redcliff Management in partnership with Clearwater Events. This year you will experience the ultimate conglomeration of Zimbabwe’s diverse artistic and culinary cultures in what is easily the largest celebration of Zimbabwe in the diaspora. 

Come and party with other music lovers in this year’s unique and family-friendly event!
