NAIROBI, Kenya, May 9 – The Koroga Festival by Capital FM is now moving to Tatu City on 6-7 July, featuring a serene environment with the biggest grounds and the best sounds from Africa at Kenya’s highly anticipated open-air culture event.
A celebration of African music, food, art and fashion, the Koroga Festival is a concert and open boutique market. The greatest African acts from around the continent keep the 5,000+ crowd grooving over a packed weekend with the best entertainment.
At Tatu City, Capital FM’s Koroga event is entering a new phase, offering the largest space ever for revellers of all ages. On a 10-acre site at the entrance to Tatu City, just 35 minutes from Nairobi’s CBD, Koroga is turning up the volume in a brand new location away from town.
Around the stage, Koroga fans will find a Food Court, Flea Market, Kiddie Area and a range of non-stop entertainment. The Kiddie Area features an Edutainment Zone for children to learn and have so much fun.
Tatu City country head Nick Langford said this will be a great opportunity for Koroga fans to have fun and also get to learn more about Tatu City.
“We look forward to doing a great event. We hope people will come here and have fun,” he said.
Tatu City is a 5,000-acre, mixed-use development with homes, schools, offices, a shopping district, medical clinics, nature areas, a sport and entertainment complex and a manufacturing area for more than 150,000 residents and tens of thousands of day visitors.
Schools and businesses are already open at Tatu City, and a range of houses are under construction to suit all incomes. Located in Kiambu County, Tatu City represents a new way of living and thinking for all Kenyans, creating a unique live, work and play environment that is free from traffic congestion and long distance commuting.
Capital Group Chairman Chris Kirubi welcomed the partnership saying this will broaden the experience of the festival as well as showcase the potential of Tatu City.
“We are proud of the work you have done and we embrace and support your vision of bringing development and improving income of people in the area,” said Kirubi.
On Saturday 6 July, Day 1 of the festival will feature up-coming Kenyan artistes popular to the youthful crowd (old timers also welcome!).
On Sunday 7 July, Day 2 is a family event with activities for all and a line-up of top artists from across the continent.
Throughout the day, Koroga fans can catch a Tatu City bus for a tour of all the amenities, homes and businesses at the 5,000-acre new city development.
Located just off the Thika Super Highway and at the junction of the Northern & Eastern Bypasses, Tatu City has multiple access points for Koroga fans.
Watch out for more of the event details and ticket information will be available on Capital FM and all the social media channels. Stay tuned!
