The Harare International Festival of the Arts

The Harare International Festival of the Arts (HIFA) has grown into one of the most substantial and diverse international arts events in Africa. The dates of this year’s Festival are 29th April to 4th May and HIFA 2008 promises to be the most prestigious since the Festival’s inauguration in 1999. HIFA is flourishing; HifAmigo subscriptions have increased from 467 in 2006 to 1 104 for HIFA 2008. The HIFA website receives thousands of hits on a daily basis and there were at least 600 separate articles covering HIFA 2007 posted on various international websites, in numerous languages. Box office figures grew from 39 750 tickets issued for HIFA 2006 to 56 000 at HIFA 2007 and the Main Stage shows were streamed on YouTube. This year, Harare Gardens in the center of Harare and surrounding venues will be transformed into a cultural carnival featuring a huge programme of music of all types, theatre, dance and visual arts.
