This year’s Lake of Stars Festival will kick off with a little bit of something for everybody. As we are getting ready for the Lake of Stars Festival which will take place from the 25th to 27th September, 2015 in Mangochi, the organizers of the top-rated festival hosted a launch party of the festival on the roof terrace of Peermont President Walmont Hotel (next BICC).

The party was spiced up by performances Q Malewezi who recited a very touching and brilliant piece, an artistic and exquisite dance by Tron and acoustic performances Lulu, Menes and Neil Nayar. Rapper Tay Grin, singer George Kalukusha and the Norwegian Ambassador to Malawi, Mr. Kikkan Haugen were also in attendance and among some of the notable faces at the event.
