The organizers behind the hit social event Blankets & Wine have made a major announcement: one of the best duos to ever put together great music - Mafikizolo - will headline the 14th edition of Blankets & Wine!

Tusker Malt, part of the teams that put the social event, via the company's Brand Manager Alex Tusingwire stated, "We are elated to continuously see more involvement from entertainers and the crowds with every edition of Blankets and Wine Kampala. Having Mafikizolo, one of the finest acts on the continent, headline the 14th edition of Blankets and Wine goes to show how we have grown and are now able to be host an act of such stature. In addition, we have also selected a captivating range of Ugandan musicians who will perform alongside them to create that much loved afro-based music fusion."

Mr. Tusingwire went on to announce that the local acts that shall perform at the do - per the norm at every edition - are Giovanni Kiyingi, Gospel up-and-comer Levixone, and Quela Band!

Meanwhile, the venue where the event is going to be held has been moved from hitherto the Uganda Museum grounds, to the Lugogo Cricket Oval. The organizers noted that this in line with their pledge to try and accommodate as best they can the ever growing number of revelers. But industry insiders add that on top of that, there were growing concerns of oft-lackadaisical security at the previous venue and that this had to be checked so as not to drive away the hordes that throng the event.

The event prides itself on showcasing and exposing emerging talent, especially with the local industry. And true to form, the next edition's line-up doesn't disappoint. 

September 25, 2016 is when the next edition is going to be held. This will be at the Lugogo Cricket Oval, and the tickets are priced at 100,000 UGX apiece. The gates shall be opened by midday.
