For the first time, East Africa’s largest outdoor event will be held in Naivasha, inside the splendid Hell's Gate National Park. Dubbed 'Naivasha Love Edition' the 29th edition of Koroga Festival is slated for Valentine’s weekend February 14-15th.
The Koroga Festival is a celebration of African music, food, art and fashion brought to you in the form of a concert and open boutique market.
The Valentine’s weekend edition is a collaboration between Koroga Festival and Naivasha Love Festival forming part of the Tourism promotion Activities planned for the Valentine's weekend.
Why Naivasha though? Well, for one, the event organizers have stated that the main aim of the festival is to attract both local and international tourists into the destination, promote preservation of culture and sensitize the community on the Importance of our Natural habitats.
The Koroga Festival has partnered with Naivasha Love Festival- an event solely managed by Nakuru County Tourism Association, Naivasha Branch, which is made up of stakeholders in the tourism sector.
We also want to give an opportunity for adventure and sports tourism as well as market the floriculture and eco-tourism in Naivasha town. Naivasha Love Festival chairperson Peter Kimani said.
An explosive line up of award-winning artists are scheduled to entertain thousands of fans. If you're planning on driving down for this special edition of Koroga, here are some of the dope performances lined up for you:
Day 1: Khaligraph Jones a.k.a Papa Jones- known for his unique style and a flexible flow, which cuts across the complexity of genres and eras with his music. Also performing on the first day includes the Ochungulo Family and Nadia Mukami.
2; East Africa’s arguably biggest artist Diamond
Platnumz will be main the main artist. Others who will be performing are H_art
