Lake of Stars Festival

Last year marked an exciting Chintheche homecoming for Lake of Stars. Now, in keeping with our mission to diversify our projects and support creative industries and youth programmes, we will be giving our main festival a break in 2017.
 
Our year has already kicked off successfully with the special youth-focused Festival of Ideas in January at the incredible but underused Kamuzu Institute in Lilongwe. In the months ahead there will be workshops and ongoing support for creative projects such as the Tumaini Festival as we continue to work with other Malawian festival organisers.
 
As well as delivering the country’s flagship tourism festival, we’ve also produced the annual Children’s Future Festival, Lilongwe Shorts Film Festival, the Mount Mulanje Porter’s Race Island in Sky Concert, Day of Ideas, A4AY concerts, numerous artist workshops, and, most recently, Festival of Ideas.
 
In 2017 we also plan to start new Lake of Stars events in London and Scotland that can act as platforms for increasing audiences and opportunities for Malawian talent and create promotional opportunities for Malawian tourism.
 
The festival will return to Lake Malawi in September 2018 for our fifteenth anniversary. Thank you for all your support.
