The Jameson Vic Falls Carnival returns to the spectacular town of Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, to ring in a uniquely African New Year. Jameson Irish Whiskey continues as title sponsor and headline acts are Goldfish Live, joined by Beatenberg, along with Zimbabwe’s own legend, Oliver ”Tuku” Mtukudzi and the infamous Hararian reggae-dance hall champion Winky D.

Having proved their musical credentials with a record-breaking eight SAMA nominations and numerous number one hits, Goldfish Live’s genre-defying mix of live instruments, house beats and live performances have made them popular not only in South Africa, but across the African continent and the world. With a long-standing residency in Ibiza, the duo has garnered the support of the international music industry and has earned huge credibility within the global music scene.

Beatenberg, made famous by their hugely successful number one hit single Pluto (Remember You), which was nominated for Song of the Year at the 2014 MTV Africa Music Awards, can’t wait to perform to the multinational crowd that this unique event draws.
