The country’s most sought-after youth event, Kadanke is set to return except that now it returns rebranded and with a 360-youth coverage all embedded in her new name – Kadanke Youth Fest.
The event rebrand is intended to quench and cover all youth edutainment needs in a single shell as will be exhibited at its first ever event on January, 14, 2023, at Hockey Grounds Lugogo.
Following their 2-year COVID-19 break, the nation’s biggest youth celebration returns with even wider ambitions, goals and intentions to not only to entertain but edutain. Sources reveal that Kadanke intendeds to bank on its brand position in the youth segment to create awareness and popularizing the sustainable development goals among young people using music and entertainment as a vehicle.
Originally known as Kadanke Grand Finale, the event takes a new twist and a rebrand this year. Unlike previous editions, this one is about mobilizing young people for a “Global Cause” – Sustainable Development Goals which is all due respect a smart move.
“We want to take steps to popularize the millennium sustainable goals among young people who are the rightful custodians of Agenda 2030. With collective action, inclusion, we can change this by making an impact together. We want to connect youth citizens and artists to call on our political / corporate leaders, and philanthropists to do their part,” the organizers said.
Like many festivals, we’ve been reliably informed that this edition is going to be a full day open-air concert that is set to bring together young people to spread the SDG crusade using the power of talent and music. Since its inception, Kadanke has been known for staging high end crowd decent youth events since 2013. These have given birth to today’s best entertainment talents, created networks, platforms and spaces for youth talent to thrive.
