Dear partners, we have been discussing partnerships for Zomba City Festival 2022 (ZCF22) and we kindly request you to fill in the form below.
The total budget for the festival is approx 18 million kwacha. Laura & Annelies are working tirelessly to get the budget covered. Financially the aim is to break even for the festival, but to create business opportunities after the event, because we want to put Zomba in the spotlight and not only attract tourists during the festival, but also afterwards.
A partner of Zomba City Festival means that you are a location where part of the programme takes place. In some cases the venue pays for all entertainment and programme content; in other cases ZAP organised (part of) the programme at your venue.
As counts for everything, nothing really comes for free. Laura and Annelies are investing many hours in organising the event; from talking to artists to finding sponsors, getting permits and organising 1st aid and security. From March they will be joined by volunteers who expect some allowances towards food, transport and airtime. There will be an office at Pakachere and the organisers will need paper, ink, internet and other stationary. There will be a dedicated team for social media and all these people need to be supervised.
Some venues pay cash to be part of the festival to cover costs for artists, organising and volunteers; others pay in kind through (discount on) rooms, meals or discount for people with festival wristbands; some don’t pay anything but organise their own programme. Please find attached an example of packages; all packages can be custom-made with your special requirements.
For all press and media, we kindly ask to refer everybody to Laura on 0883 68 85 30
For questions regarding the partnership, please contact Annelies on 0999 82 66 86
