The excitement is building as the 2023 Tusker Oktobafest regional tour heads to Naivasha this weekend. On October 6 and 7 Party Island Lounge will transform into a vibrant hub of entertainment and cultural festivities.
The event boasts a diverse and inclusive lineup of artists, featuring both male and female talents with electrifying performances expected from, among others, renowned rap trio, Wakadinali, who also represent Tusker as brand ambassadors, the “Siskii” sensation, Mejja, will also grace the stage, alongside the ‘Kale Kadance’ hitmakers, Vijana Barubaru, and the sensational Veryl Mkali Wao, a standout from last year’s Tusker Nexters talent search.
Guiding the musical journey over the two days will be DJ Grauchi and DJ Most Wanted. Anticipation is running high in Naivasha and neighbouring areas as we prepare to unleash the grandest celebration of Kenyan culture, encompassing beer, entertainment, food, fashion, arts, and music.
The event follows the first regional edition held last weekend in Kisumu. It took place at the Black Pearl Lounge & Grill in Kisumu entertaining revellers from the lakeside city and its neighbouring counties. Headlining acts Ndovu Kuu, Khaligraph, and Maandy Kabaya Jones had the crowd enthralled, singing along to their hits throughout the night.
Beyond the electrifying performances, the local business scene in Kisumu experienced a boost in customer activity across various sectors, including transportation, hospitality, and services. This is in line with this year’s Oktobafest objectives to leave a positive impact across the regions.
This year’s OktobaFest aims to capture the essence of the highly acclaimed 2022 event while expanding its footprint to encompass East African nations, including Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and South Sudan.
Participation in OktobaFest is as simple as purchasing four Kenya Breweries Limited family beers at the gate for only Sh1000. For further information about this event and upcoming ones, follow Tusker on social media platforms such as Facebook, X (formerly known as Twitter), and Instagram.
