The four-in-one music Megafest will feature heavyweight musicians Mafikizolo, prostate Shaggy, Burnaboy and Patra at Mandela National Stadium.

Understandably ecstatic at the prospect of hosting four international music sell-out artistes on the same stage, Club Pilsner Brand Manager, Samuel Hooper, revealed that the show will start from 12 noon to 12 midnight combining performances from top Ugandan and international stars.

“As a brand we are proud to have nailed down these artistes,” said Hooper. “It has been quite a long process but we are proud to have reached this stage. But as you realize it is far from the end. It is only a continuation of the work that has been going on back-end.”

“The choice of artistes was informed by the brand’s drive to ensure that everyone’s interests are catered for, and this is what we’ve got from Club customers countrywide. Nothing will be enforced on anyone. Everyone should be themselves. That’s what Club is all about,” added Hooper.
