You’re invited to a scintillating weekend of open-air jazz concerts, poetry readings, storytelling, great debate, cultural walks and talks, VIP dinners with the stars, and the very best after-parties in town!

Join us for a long and lazy weekend of literary and jazz delights. Enjoy close encounters with some of the world’s most talented writers and musicians. Put your feet up, kick back, and enjoy island-life.

You can even join this year’s hot debate – ‘The current global economic state, its origin and relevance to Africa, and where should we go from here?’ It is not to be missed!

Maru Maru’s fabulous rooftop and Livingstone’s beachfront provide the ideal setting for festival-goers to enjoy open-air jazz concerts, while 236 Hurumzi Hotel, A Novel Idea bookstore and Maru Maru’s courtyard offer intimate settings for literary events. Dhow Countries Music Academy will once again kindly host to music workshops.
