- The Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC) is a state-of-the-art iconic tower in the heart of Nairobi City
- KICC is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to offering world-class conference rooms, and has won the World Travel Awards (WTA)
- Sol Fest moved to KICC after consulting with security authorities on the security situation around the former Fox Drive-In pick-up site
Southy Sol chose the Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC) as the new venue for Sol Fest 2022.
Sol Fest 2022 switches to KICC
The award-winning group said in a statement that switching from Fox Drive-In to KICC should have ensured the safety of partygoers.
“Sol Fest's number one priority is the safety of our patrons, artists and partners,” the statement said, in part.
“It has been found that the areas surrounding the previous place of choice for SolFest (Fox Drive-In, Thika Road) have had a significant increase in criminal activity in recent months.”
