Zaire '74 was a music festival, held in Kinshasa in Zaire from September 21, 1974 to September 24, 1974 and leading up to the box event The Rumble in the Jungle. The festival was organized by Hugh Masekela and Stewart Levine and featured American, Congolese and African artists such as James Brown, B. B. King, The Spinners, Franco, Miriam Makeba and Tabu Ley Rochereau. The festival took place at the Stadium 20 May. Due to the high price of admission ticket sales were low during the first two nights. Only after the Zairean government gave away the tickets for free the stadium was filled to capacity with 70,000 spectators.
