It is no longer possible to apply. The deadline has passed.

Zomba City Festival is a small unique event. This year’s see its 2nd edition after a successful launch last year. At Zomba City Festival artists do not play for a massive crowd on big stage, but there are many smaller venues where artists showcase their talent for smaller groups.

The idea is to promote the beauty of Zomba and show people what’s on offer. There will be Art in the Park organised by the Wildlife & Environmental Society of Malawi (Zomba branch) in the Botanic Gardens, live music at Pakachere, e-gaming at Mango Lodge, fashion show at Dominos, mountain hikes, yoga, poetry, theatre and much more at different locations.

The ZAP team is currently inviting artists to apply to play at Zomba City Festival. We cannot make any promises at this stage, as a lot is still uncertain and the team is looking for funding. We will have to make choices that fits our vision and our budget.

Please note that this is the 2nd edition and that we still have a worldwide pandemic. The numbers of attendants will be quite low and due the concept of the festival (one festival, many venues), performances will be in front of an audience of 50 to max 250 people.

Please provide us with more information below. If you have an EPK (Electronic Press Kit) or online information, please share with us on or in the motivation box below.

The deadline was 15 February, 10AM. Please try again next year
