A NATURAL weather forecast of wet weather conditions in the month of December, has compelled HCM Music Festival organisers to shift the event’s venue from City Hall Car Park to the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF) Hall 4.
The show will be held on 4 December and it is expected to be a gig that will see party maniacs warm up to the festive season musical dishes.
One of the organisers of the event Kudzaishe Matondo, A.K.A Dee Nosh said in light of the rains that the City of Kings and Queens has been receiving and the wet weather conditions during the festive season, they saw it fit to move the gig from an open space to an enclosed venue.
“For the sake of protecting our fans and artistes from the bad elements of weather, we had to shift the venue and find a more suitable venue so that people can have fun and enjoy the festival without any hindrances. The venue at ZITF is really large and it can accommodate a lot of people, so fans should come in numbers and party with the best creatives in the Southern African music industry,” said Matondo.
Fireworks are expected on the night of the event as top-notch artistes such as Mzansi’s DJ Tira, Master KG, Dladla Mshunqisi and the duo of Reece Madlisa and Zuma who are also known as Amaroto, are set to take to the stage.
Local artistes who are set to feature at the musical show include Zim Dancehall gaffa Winky D, Jah Signal, Mzoe 7 with the wheel spinners DJ Mzoe, Yona and Mufula expected to rotate on the decks.
DJ Tira who has become a regular performer in Zimbabwe, said he was happy to make a return to Bulawayo.
“I am excited to be returning to Zimbabwe, Bulawayo in particular. People of Bulawayo if you want to party with the Makoya Bearings you can go and get your tickets for the show as I will be bringing fire,” said DJ Tira.
