The Malawi music festival will return this year, bringing musical creativity to the shimmering, palm-fringed shores of Lake Malawi from September 1-3. The Lake of Stars Festival has become one of the fastest growing musical events in sub-saharan Africa. The last two years have seen Groove Armada's Andy Cato, DJ Yoda and Felix B from Basement Jaxx fly out along with around 200 people from all over the UK to fuse African and Western culture, all in the name of charity!
Headlining and hosting the event will be BBC 1Xtra's Ras Kwame, Chibuku residents the Beat Monkeys, Phat Phil Cooper, Maverick Mitchell and Malawi stars Tikhu Vibrations, the Black Missionaries and Wambali, amongst others.
STA Travel have a special affiliation with the festival, so have arranged discount flights with Kenya Airways at £620 inc tax. These must be booked through the Liverpool branch on Bold St: 0151 707 1123. Alternatively, contact STA Travel to discuss other routes to Malawi.
