BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-Impact Event has set this year’s Sand Music Festival to be done in early October as a way of taking affirmative action against October’s un-favourable weather conditions which usually affect the festival.
Addressing the media in Blantyre Nkhwachi Mhango Lead Consultant of Impact Events, said the festival has been shifted from November to early October, to ensure the activity is not affected by rains as it has been the case in previous years.
