tresor, Judgement yard, tidal waves and new format ignite the jameson vic falls carnival


Presented by Jameson.

Combine Southern Africa’s biggest artists, the world’s greatest adventures and adrenalin-filled activities, with a New Year’s countdown like nowhere else on earth and you have arrived at the world-renowned Jameson Vic Falls Carnival.

This year’s carnival is set to take over the town of Vic Falls as the festival returns for its fourth edition along with SA’s top electronic trio and returning headline act, Goodluck, and pop musos, Locnville, for their first Jameson Vic Falls Carnival performance. Festival-goers are sure to dance the night away into 2017 with the chart-topping beats of producer DJ Sketchy Bongo and Cape Town’s live electronic duo, The Kiffness. Adding to this impressive line-up is multi-award winning, platinum selling artist Tresor, hailing from the Congo, Tresor has beaten the odds, starting out as a car guard he has carved a path for himself as a successful producer and singer collaborating with the likes of AKA, The Soil, Khuli Chana and Beatenberg. SA’s hardest working reggae band, Tidal Waves, will ring in the New Year with their original reggae music intertwined with traditional African music influences like Maskandi and Mbaqanga. We’re happy to welcome back hugely popular Zim locals, Judgement Yard. This collective always brings the electricity with their high-energy dancehall, reggae routine. ZiFM DJ and Hidden Culture founder Jason le Roux, SA’s Half ‘n Half, and Train Party regulars DJ Francis and Diloxclusiv complete the announced line-up.

They say the journey is half the adventure, and #JVFC2016 is all about the adventure!

Whether you hop on an overlander from Johannesburg or Cape Town, get some rest in one of our fully set-up tents or choose a bit of luxury at the 4 star Elephant Hills, we have a package that suits every budget and need. Check out to secure your spot!

This year, organisers have introduced a new and exciting festival format to kick off the adventure weekend. Revellers can party the night away on the opening night at either the Shoestrings Lodge Pool Party, a Gorge Party overlooking the Falls or a River Party along the Zambezi River. The 30th of December will see the famous Train Party set off into the bush for a secret party after festival-goers can enjoy the majestic Zambezi River on a Sunset Cruise. The 31st of December see the New Year’s concert attract thousands to party under stars with an unforgettable lineup as we countdown to 2017.

About Jameson Irish Whiskey

At Jameson we believe we have perfected the art of making smooth Irish whiskey. Triple distilled whiskey like ours isn’t just born smooth and balanced. It takes our carefully crafted process used over hundreds of years to get it just right. This tradition began in 1780 with the great Master Distiller John Jameson who discovered that three distillations was best for his Jameson Irish Whiskey and we continue his legacy to this day.
