This year's Interregional Festival takes place in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania:
16-17 July @ TaSUBa in Bagamoyo

With something for everyone, the festival will feature artists from Ghana, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe as well as special guests from around the world.

Drawing crowds in the six figures, this festival is "most renowned for its celebration of African heritage, whether pop or rock, jazz or reggae, all artists showcased at the festival pulsate a spirit and feel that is undoubtedly African."
