The long-anticipated Spar Solo Festival takes place on Saturday at Sam Mtukudzi Conference Centre in Norton.
Local and international artistes will take turns to entertain the audience at the festival which was a massive success last year.
The organisers of the event have said they are through with all the planning and are ready to host some of the biggest names in the music industry.
This year’s event is likely to be another hot seller considering the hype and success of the previous event.
On Friday workshops were held with schoolchildren. A number of musicians participating at the festival imparted arts skills to the children.
Organisers of the festival said the workshops were important in nurturing young talent.
“With the kind support of the Culture Fund Trust Zimbabwe, who have partnered us this year, it means we are able to facilitate a day’s arts training session and performances by young talent from the schools in line with our vision to mentor youngsters,” said the organisers.
The names at this year’s festival are Alick Macheso, Freddy “Kapfupi” Manjalima, Sulumani Chimbetu, Chiwoniso Maraire, Edith Katiji, Fungisayi Zvakavapano-Mashavave, Steve Makoni, Steve Dyer (SA), Suzanna Owiyo (Kenya), Munya Mataruse, Mathias Julius, Beatrice Eastwood, Watson Junior Chidzomba, Donald Kanyuchi, Nqobile Malinga, Josh Meck, Selmor Mtukudzi, Strovers Maswobe Shadaya and Oliver “Tuku” Mtukudzi.
