The Standerton Music Festival and Expo is in first year and it is planned on being an annual event… it comprises of the three phases namely:
- Mayoral Games (which are currently on going and on the top 4)
- Expo which is going to take place on the 26th
- And The main Festival which is going to take place on the 27th of September, I have attached the poster for your attention.
The team that is going to win the Mayoral Cup will scoop a great prize of R20 000. This will obviously increase as the years go on and when more sponsorship is confirmed.
This initiative has encouraged teams from all over to part take which increases more awareness on the Grounds in Mpumalanga.
The Expo: different Crafters are invited to showcase their craft, this will increase more business for them and to create more awareness on the various talent that Standerton Has.
Main Festival is going to be the first of its kind…where there will be over 10 Mzansi artists performing plus include 5 local (MP) artists to share the stage with their national idols.
People who will be selling food and alcohol at the event will be 100% from Mpumalanga , therefore it is said that more than 200 Jobs will be created from this initiative (security, vendors e.t.c).
