Lady Zamar to headline the LIBF

The 6th annual Lobatse International Beef Festival (LIBF), scheduled for the Lobatse Town Park on the 30th of June 2018, has revealed popular South African dance music singer Lady Zamar as their headlining act. The LIBF aims to promote the beef industry in Botswana to the residents of Botswana in a fun-filled family atmosphere.

The event showcases local meat dishes, gives local vendors an opportunity for business, and celebrates renowned local artists as well as providing a platform for the up and coming. Among those secured on the line up so far is man of the moment, Motlha of ‘Mma Motse’ fame, and some of Botswana’s best DJs across an array of genres.

This installment of the LIBF will see a local up and coming Lobatse DJ accorded the opportunity for a coveted slot at the event through a Competition dubbed ‘Lobatse’s Sauce DJ’.  This competition calls upon all up and coming DJs, native to Lobatse, to submit their best mixes via Facebook, to be eligible for a slot on the line up, as well as bragging rights for having been a part of the event. The competition closes for entries this Friday, June 15th.

LIBF 2018 will take place on Saturday June 30 at the Lobatse Town Park, from morning until late.  Traditional favorites like Mokoto, Mokwetjepe and Serobe are part of the delicacies that will form part of this year’s offering to revelers as well as an enhanced experience for the entire family.  “Whether you are a food lover in search of a tasty and hearty feast or out with friends or family, this year’s LIBF is sure to exceed expectations as the event is promising revelers a culinary adventure coupled with premium entertainment,” the organizers say. “Ticket holders will be spoilt for choice with options of “bottomless” pap (phaleche), sorghum (bogobe) and beans to compliment the sizzling steaks, warm and hearty soul food as well as innovative meat pairings on offer.”

The organizers say VIP Hospitality marquees at the LIBF 2018 will give guests a VIP food experience prepared by celebrated local Chefs.  “Guests can also treat themselves to the bevy of beverages on offer from showcasing suppliers on the day. One can take advantage of networking opportunities while enjoying premium food and entertainment on offer at this year’s LIBF.”
