The most sought-after youth event in the country, Kadanke is set to return on January 14, 2023, except it is now returning under a new name and with 360 youth coverage, all wrapped up in its new name – Kadanke Youth Fest. The renaming of the event is intended to satisfy and cover all the edutainment needs of young people in a single shell, as it will be presented in its very first event on January 14, 2023 on the hockey grounds of Lugogo.
After their 2-year COVID-19 hiatus, the nation’s biggest celebration of youth returns with even broader ambitions, goals and intentions to not only entertain but also educate. Sources reveal that Kadanke intended to leverage its brand position in the youth segment to raise awareness and popularize the Sustainable Development Goals among young people using music and entertainment as a vehicle.
Originally known as Kadanke Grand Finale, the event takes on a new twist and name change this year. Unlike previous editions, this one is all about mobilizing young people for a “global cause” – the Sustainable Development Goals, all of which must respect smart decision.
“We want to take action to popularize the sustainable millennium goals among young people who are the rightful guardians of the 2030 Agenda. With collective action and inclusion, we can change this by having an impact together. We want to connect young citizens and artists to call on our political/corporate leaders and philanthropists to do their part,” organizers said.
Like many festivals, we have been reliably informed that this edition will be an all-day outdoor concert that will bring young people together to spread the SDG crusade using the power of talent and music. Since its inception, Kadanke has been known since 2013 for hosting high-end, crowd-friendly youth events. These have given birth to today’s top entertainment talent and create networks, platforms and spaces for young talent to flourish.
