SolFest, the highly anticipated event hosted by Sauti Sol, has abruptly changed places due to what the administration claims to be a security issue for visitors.
According to a press release published by the SolFest management on Monday evening, the event, slated for December 17, 2022, will no longer take place at the original location of Fox Drive-In, Thika Road. As an alternative, the gathering will move to the Central Business District and take place at the Kenyatta International Convention Center.
The regions surrounding the prior site of choice for SolFest (Fox Drive-In, Thick Road), according to a statement from SolFest, "have seen a considerable increase in criminal behavior over the recent months." This was decided after talking to our security service providers, who talked to several security agencies in the process.
The management of SolFest further stated that they are not willing to let their supporters down because they are using the 2021 edition as a benchmark.
"After a safe event in 2021, we felt it necessary to switch the venue from FOX DRIVE-IN to KICC in order to maintain our security standards and make sure the location is suitable for all stakeholders."
The statement went on to thank the excellent personnel at the Fox Drive-In, a venue that is distinctly Kenyan, as well as the supporting parties, for their cooperation.
"Thank you for your patience, and we look forward to seeing you at Sol Fest in 2022,"
