Legendary spin doctor, DJ Francis, will once again get the party started with a mix of tunes spanning the decades from 60’s rock ‘n roll to the disco hits of the 80s, right through to the latest electronic sounds of the 20th century. A regular on the Zimbabwean DJ scene, this muso has been on the decks for over 20 years.

Hailing from Swakopmund and thrilling audiences in their native Namibia for the past few years, the CU_Rage unit make their debut at the Jameson Vic Falls Carnival. Having played with the best DJs in Namibia, they will now energise this New Year’s festival with their Dubstep and House skills.
