SolFest Venue Moved To KICC Over Security Concerns

Due to what the administration claims to be a security risk for visitors, Sauti Sol's eagerly anticipated event SolFest has abruptly moved locations.

The event, scheduled for December 17, 2022, will no longer take place at the original location of Fox Drive-In, Thika Road, according to a press release issued by the SolFest management on Monday evening. Instead, the event will relocate to the Central Business District and be held at the Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC).

According to a statement from SolFest, "the areas surrounding the previous location of choice for SolFest (Fox Drive-In, Thick Road) has had a significant increase in criminal activity over the recent months." This was determined after consultation with our security service providers, who also consulted with various security agencies.

The SolFest management added that they are using their 2021 edition as a benchmark and therefore they are not ready to disappoint their fans.

“Having had a secure event in 2021, it is in retaining our security standards and ensuring that the location is fit for all stakeholders that deemed it necessary to change venue from FOX DRIVE-IN to KICC".

The statement added that they would wish to express their sincere gratitude to the wonderful team at Fox Drive-In, a quintessentially Kenyan venue, and the supporting stakeholders for their partnership.

“We appreciate your patience and look forward to having a great and safe time with you at Sol Fest 2022,”.
