Zimfest Live is an annual Zimbabwean music, food and family festival. This year the headline sponsor of the festival is Econet through their Cassava Remit and Ecocash Wallet brands. Other partners include World Remit, Senditoo and Diaspora Funeral Cash Plan.
Starting in 2001, in a field behind Wandsworth Prison in south-west London, the festival has spread its magic round the world to Cape Town, Perth, Brisbane and Oslo.
The festival now comes back to the UK as ZimFest Live under new management by Redcliff Management in partnership with Clearwater Events.
This year, ZimFest Live will be held at Kempton Park Racecourse, Sunbury-on-Thames, Surrey. The site has over 200 acres of flat grassland surrounded by woodland and 2 lakes. It is located 16 miles south-west of London, is close to Heathrow airport and so within easy reach by public transport or car.
Parking permits must be purchased in addition to the general entry tickets. We advise you to buy these online as early as possible for the cheapest rate.
