Shoko Festival 2016 Call for Artist Application
It's that time of year when established artists, up & coming talents as well as struggle rappers alike can all take a break from sending us links to their new "hot fire music video" and apply to perform at Shoko Festival 2016. Here's the official press release from Magamba Network, the people behind Shoko:
To all the artists out there who are seeking the ultimate urban culture platform to showcase their skills, Shoko Festival has now opened its doors for artists to apply to the 2016 edition. Currently in its 6th year, Shoko Festival will be taking place from the 23rd to the 25th of September at the Zimbabwe Museum of Human Sciences grounds and in Chitungwiza on the last day.
Musicians, comedians, dancers, and spoken word artists are encouraged to submit applications as it is a great opportunity to share the stage with more established Zimbabwean and International acts. Last year’s Shoko saw the likes of Cassper Nyovest, Bucie, Tol A$$ Mo, Clive Chigubu, Junior Brown and Guspy Warrior, to name a few, gracing the stage, with around 9000 people attending the 3 day event, and it is set to be the biggest festival in Harare this year.
“We are excited to discover what new talent is out there and to provide them with the space to receive the exposure that they deserve. Artists play a vital role in any community and it’s important that we keep our festivals alive and thriving so that not only do the public get to be entertained, but we can also continually contribute to the development of our artists,” says Shoko Festival coordinator Natalie Kombe.
The Shoko 2016 call for artist application form is now available for download on the Shoko Festival Website and the deadline is the 20th of May 2016.
