House music festival launched
Windhoek is fast becoming one of the best entertainment capitals in the world by playing host to some of the most attended music festivals and shows in the country.
Having noticed a gap in the market for a ‘House music’ event, Legend Entertainment Productions have decided to host the first ever ‘Summer House Festival’ in Namibia.
“Just like the organisers of the NAMAS, the /Ae//Gams, The Last Banding Standing, the Hart van Windhoek and many others have realised the gap in providing social entertainment for segmented markets, we too have noticed a gap in the market, that is the need for a house music event to be hosted” said Managing Member of Legend Entertainment Promotions, Richard Katamila.
The show promises an exciting line up of South African DJs, Namibian DJs and artists including K-Boss, the Dogg, Gazza, Dixon and Mushe. South African DJs who seem to be blazing the airwaves of Namibian radio stations, DJs Vetkuk and Mahoota of ‘via Orlando fame’ as well as Kwaito and House artist, Professor will also perform at the House music festival.
With the concept creation of the ‘Summer House Festival’ the organisers have a specific target audience in mind: music lovers between the ages of 21-25 as well as house music lovers of all ages.
Katamila said they hope the Summer House Festival will be amongst the top events on the Namibian social scene as well as the entertainment industry.
Organiser of the Event and social media consultant at Media. Exec, Ockert Jansen said the show aims to attract up to 3000 people.
He said the organisers are not only looking to attract a large crowd but also to become a big part of the Namibian social scene.
The safety of the audience is a top priority. Jansen said they will enlist the services of the Namibian Police and provide better access in and out of the show by providing separate entrance and exit points for both standard and VIP ticket holders.
The show takes place at the Windhoek High School Sports Grounds on 30 November. Tickets to the show are currently on sale at Computicket for N$200 for standard tickets and N$500 for VIP tickets.
