2010 - About Face

The festival in 2010 ran from 27 April to 2 May and it was under the theme About Face. HIFA explained the choice of theme:

ABOUT FACE signifies moving forward, it signifies positive change and growth, developing new attitudes, changing our minds and changing our lives. It invites us to turn everything around, as we march proudly on, into a future ripe with promise and opportunity. As has been demonstrated, ABOUT FACE as a HIFA theme has many layers - and predictably, is triggering tremendous creativity amongst Zimbabwe's many talented artists.

The Opening show in 2010 was a performance of Carl Orff's famous cantata Carmina Burana. It was delivered through a choir of 100 Zimbabwean people.

Zimbabwean artists that featured that year include: Winky D, Edith Weutonga, Comrade Fatso and Chabvondoka, Sulumani Chimbetu and the Orchestra Dendera Kings, Mokoomba, Hope Masike and Kakuwe, Chitungwiza Harmony Singers, International artists included Salif Keita, Ndabaningi Mabuye, Outspoken, Emeline Michel, The Magnets, Manou Gallo, Amy Dickson,
