The concert will include youth participation as well as acts from Harare, Bulawayo and Mutare, live break dancing, live graffiti and related live hip hop culture.

“Peace In Da Hood” is a beautiful way to end Shoko. It’s a really positive event in the vibrant community of Glen Norah. You do not want to miss it,” says Samm Monro, Shoko Festival Director.

In 2012 the concert brought out a crowd of close to 1,000 people and this year promises to be bigger with strong emphasis on positive collaborations between local and international artists. This year’s inclusion of more township activities symbolizes and solidifies the direction of growth that the festival has gained.

Shoko Festival is set to run for six days from September 17, involving over 250 artists bringing together acts from three continents.
