The Koroga Festival, a rare and loved occasion for culture and entertainment.
The Koroga Festival, which recently held its 26th event in July 2019, is a bi-monthly music extravaganza organized by Capital FM. The festival celebrates African music and features local artists as well as celebrated international acts. Food, art, and fashion also feature prominently and all these make it a must-attend.
In its early days, the festival was normally held at the Green Arboretum grounds. However, as it has continued to grow, the event has been held in different locations, the last two of which were the Nairobi Mamba Village grounds and Tatu City respectively. Holding it in different places has proven to be a good idea because it gives it a fresh feel every time, especially for regular attendees.
There are many great reasons to attend the festival whenever you can. The first of which is, of course, the music. The festival hosts a wide variety of Kenyan acts as well as international ones and boasts of having hosted the likes of Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Papa Wemba, Ali Kiba, and Koffi Olomide among others. If you love music, you are sure to have a wonderful time here.
The next great reason is food. The food and drinks here are great and in plenty. Pitched tents offer your favorite meals from fries to grilled goat meat. There is also an abundance of drinks from soft drinks to alcoholic beverages. Needless to say, food and music go along great.
Another reason to attend is fashion. If you like to make a fashion statement, or maybe just appreciate it, then this is the place to be. The festival occasionally features themed dressing, such as African prints or others. Either way, it is a place where fashion flourishes.
Additionally, pricing is very fair. The tickets cost about KES2000 but can be cheaper if bought earlier in advance. Transport to and from the event is also usually planned for, especially when accessibility may be an issue. Security is seriously considered so you can have fun at peace and, the event also offers kids entertainment to allow for a wholesome family fun day.
The Koroga Festival is a great event to go out with friends and family and have a great time. To find out more about the next event or to buy tickets, check out their site.
