Lake of Stars is an annual 3-day festival that usually takes place in the second half of the year.

Organized by Lake of Stars Africa, the festival was established in 2003.

The festival features live music, poetry, drama, discussion panels, cinema and more.

Lake of Stars provides a unique platform for local artists to display their work to a global audience as well as attracting high profile names from across the world to perform.

The platform caters to 80% of Malawian artists and 20% international artists.

Lake of Stars aims to create a platform that promotes the arts, culture and tourism of Malawi to the local and global market.

The festival also generates positive news and adds value to the economy of Malawi by promoting local hospitality businesses during the festival.

The festival includes the surrounding communities by bringing them a free concert a day before the main festival as a Corporate Social Responsibility activity.

Previous international artists that have graced the Lake of Stars stage include Mafikizolo, Major Lazer and many more.

Alongside the flagship festival, the Lake of Stars Project produces a number of other cultural events including the Children’s Future Festival, Lilongwe Shorts film festival, Euro Film Festival and Island in the Sky Festival.
