This outdoor music festival takes place over the course of three days in May each year in Maputo. It features performances by both local and foreign artists in front of a large number of festivalgoers. Craft and fashion exhibits, as well as workshops and musical films, take place against the backdrop of street food and drink sellers.
The well-known Subterranean Rhythm and Blues festival begins each year in May in Ponta Malongane, which is located along the border with South Africa. The festival started out as a birthday celebration eight years ago, but it has since developed into a massive event that has twenty different live bands. A hallmark of the three-day festival is the inclusion of rock & roll, blues, and fusions of the two genres. The celebration is kicked off with love, peace, and respect, as well as a fantastic beach party the day before.
Independence Day, which takes place every year on June 25, is often regarded as the most important and well-attended of all national celebrations. The highlight of these events is a spectacular concert that takes place in Maputo at the stadium and features renowned Mozambican bands.
