PhatFest, an annual gospel concert, is returning for its 9th edition.

Hosted by Power FM, an urban christian radio station, it will be headlined by American singer and song writer Jeremy Camp who will perform alongside a host of local gospel artistes including Wilson Bugembe, D. Reign and Sandra Suubi among others.

Addressing media on Wednesday afternoon, Jeremy Camp expressed excitement at being in Uganda for the first time. “It is an honour to be in Uganda for the first time. This is one of the places where I got asked to come and I felt like God was leading me here. And when God is leading you in a certain direction, you know He is going to do spectacular things.” He noted.

The much anticipated event will be held under the theme “Love at 20” to kick off the station’s 20th anniversary celebrations which will then be followed by a series of other events planned throughout the year to mark the milestone.

“20 years ago Power FM was born and this is one of the ways we are giving back to our listeners and the community for their continued support over the years.” Richard Senkwale, the station’s Managing Director said. “We decided to have PhatFest in early January so that we can start 20th anniversary celebrations in an exciting way.”

This year’s edition which has been organised in partnership with Speaking Louder Ministries will be free of charge. It will take place this Saturday, 13th January at Lugogo Cricket Oval.

At an official announcement made Friday, July 13 at the Speke Apartments in Kampala, the organisers confirmed the long wait is over as the ultimate fun show in Uganda will be happening on Saturday, August 25, 2018.

This event which was last held in 2012, will be hosted at its customary venue of Speke Resort, Munyonyo, and is powered by Tusker Malt. It promises to recreate one of the most eagerly awaited weekends of merrymaking and extravagant fashion, which were the hallmarks of the Goat Races for years.

“The Goat Races were easily the most popular event on Uganda’s social calendar for all the time they were held, so we wanted to bring that amazing experience back with fun-filled activities everyone can participate in,” said Sheena Ruparelia, the event coordinator, at the relaunch press conference.

“Our focus is on the races and activities around that, but there will be hospitality tents available, a food court with up to 10 types of cuisines; a beer garden, cocktail and champagne bars, sport games, silent disco areas, and chill-out lounges,” she added.

“We are excited about the return of the Goat Races, which we consider the social event any fun-loving person would look forward to the most in Uganda. We jumped at the opportunity to partner with the Goat Races because no fun event of this kind is complete without Tusker Malt. We want guys to really make the most of it,” said Grace Namutebi, Brand Manager, Premium Beers at Uganda Breweries.

The goat races will entail six races over the course of the day, with each race featuring 10 goats. Anyone can sponsor a race, or buy a goat to participate in a race. The proceeds generated from the races will then go to a selected charity.

Tickets to the Goat Races will go for Shs50,000, with early bird offers, and special discount days also planned, where one can get a ticket for as low as Shs30,000.
