Calling all musicians
On Saturday 22 June 2013, Namibia will once again celebrate World Music Day. The Franco Namibian Cultural Centre (FNCC) is calling all musicians to register to participate in the event.
Annually, on the day of winter solstice (21 June), communities the world over celebrate the Fête de la Musique, also known as World Music Day.
This year participating towns are Windhoek, Oshakati and Keetmanshoop. As is tradition on World Music Day, concerts are free of charge and all artists perform for free. Musicians from all walks of life and any genre are invited to register for participation. World Music Day is an excellent opportunity for both upcoming as well as established artists to showcase their talent to a large and diverse audience.
Windhoek will host a concert at the Palm Tree Park next to the train station with live music and performances. Artists are advised to be able to perform live and without the help of backing tracks. For the concerts at Oshakati and Keetmanshoop, however, music acts with backing tracks will be accepted.
This year marks the 18th anniversary of World Music Day in Namibia. The FNCC is facilitating the event with the support of DB Audio, the National Arts Council, BaseFM and the National Theatre.
Registration deadlineis Friday, 24 May 2013.
