The dates for Sauti za Busara 2017 will be announced immediately on confirmation of available funds.
Sauti za Busara aims to be more sustainable with funding from international donors (35%), commercial sponsors (40%) and self-generated revenue (25%). However despite its continued success, raising funds for the festival is increasingly challenging every year.

Visitors to Zanzibar during February have risen by more than 500% since Sauti za Busara began.Hotels are fully booked and local traders are smiling. We believe it’s time for hotels, airlines, banks, phone companies and other stakeholders operating in Zanzibar to come on board to help keep Sauti za Busara alive and moving forwards.

Email us if your organisation is interested to partner with Sauti za Busara. We offer win-win partnerships that work for YOU as well as for the festival. Marketing benefits start immediately for all festival partners, and until 31 March 2017. Your support for the festival will be seen globally by millions online in our newsletter, website and facebook pages; on TV and radio, in newspapers and magazines, at festival venues and all around East Africa on street banners, posters and other advertising.

Sponsor packages are available at all levels, from US$1,000 to $100k. Alternatively, you can simply click here to safely contribute donations in multiples of US$20. Every cent helps!
