After 15 years, something new is coming to the lake. Lake of Stars Festival returns this year in an exciting new format: Lake of Stars Discovery. The three-day celebration will take place in a beautiful, remote setting where a castle stands on the curve of the lake – Kachere Kastle.Located in the Nkhata Bay district, northern Malawi, Kachere Kastle is a stunning lodge built in the style of a Moroccan castle, set on rolling white sands by the crystal-clear waters of Lake Malawi.
Offering a unique, immersive adventure for festival goers, Lake of Stars Discovery will bring you a curated line up of music, talks, poetry, theatre, film, art and wellness activities, in an intimate and inspiring setting. More details on the line up will be announced soon.
Lake of Stars promotes Malawian arts and tourism through international interaction and exposure. We organise festivals on the shores of Lake Malawi and run events in Europe and across Africa.
Will Jameson set up the Lake of Stars Project in 2003 to encourage international tourism to Malawi, taking inspiration from events like WOMAD and Glastonbury. The project uses cultural tourism to generate revenue and exposure for Malawi. The project was born from a desire to help promote Malawi as a tourist destination, support the country’s cultural sector and expose Malawian artists to an international audience.
