WINDHOEK, 30 AUG (NAMPA) The Windhoek Spring Fiesta is a platform where local artists and deejays headline the show and showcase their talent to their fans and music enthusiasts, according to event organiser Ernest van Zyl.
Van Zyl was speaking at the launch of the Windhoek Spring Fiesta All White Edition in the capital on Wednesday, adding that the event is a local affair.
We believe we dont have a big stage for our local artists and deejays, that is why we organise the event so that they can be the headliners of the event in Namibia without being overshadowed by international acts.
He added that as soon as international artists are included in the line-ups of any event, they become the headliners and local artists become the opening acts which is something they are not keen on, especially with the Windhoek Spring Fiesta.
In terms of the people who attend the event, they really appreciate the fact we keep the event local, reiterated Van Zyl.
He explained that this gives patrons an opportunity to see what local artists and deejays can do as most people are exposed to Chanel O and Trace Africa which play international music mostly.
We have so much talent in the country but we as locals dont really get the opportunity to listen and watch these guys play, people do appreciate the show; you can see in the numbers that attend the event, he said.
The Windhoek Spring Fiesta is an annual happening that takes place in the capital and this years event is the sixth and the fourth All White Edition organised by Doctatainment.
Entertainers will include deejays Molequils, Loudima Dreamer, Desert Storm, Roxy and musicians Lioness, KK, Taylar J, Gazza and Sally.
The event is set for 22 September at The Hills; general tickets go for N.dollars 100-250 while VIP tickets sell for N.dollars 800 at Webtickets and PnP.
Early bird tickets are on sale as from Friday to 03 September at N.dollars 50 through PayPal.
