The third Annual Ebubeleni Music Festival is back with yet another mouth watering line up. With this year’s theme “Celebrating 20 Years of Freedom and Democracy through Music”, the event promises to give the Bay revellers the best they  have ever seen.

Taking place on the 27th of this month (December) at Adcock Stadium in Port Elizabeth, Nelson Mandela Bay, Ebubeleni Music Festival is ideally positioned during festive season on the last Saturday of December.  The event is meant as homecoming for the people of the Bay, also as a yearly get-together affair for those who work and or study in different parts of the country.  Those that are not from Nelson Mandela Bay are encouraged to embrace the event as part of the reason to holiday and spend part of their Xmas Holidays  in the friendly city.

The festival forms part of Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality’s Annual Summer Season Programme which starts from the 16th of December until the 31st the December. Other sponsors include the National Department of Arts and Culture’s “Mzansi Golden Economy” with its vision that goes beyond social cohesion.  MGE believe that arts, culture and heritage play a pivotal role in the economic self determination and skills development of people.

Economic Benefit for the Bay -all service providers of this event are sourced from the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality from accommodation (hotels and guest houses) ; technical - stage and sound; caterers; infrastructure (marquees and toilets) and furthermore the organisers of the event would like to invite vendors/stalls for those who wish to sell their wares, be it Food ; Ice Cream; Glow In The Dark; Same Time Pictures; Arts and Crafts etc.  The Bay’s Local artists will also showcase their talents whilst sharing the stage with the country’s well-known national artists and icons.

Heading this year’s line-up is legendary Bra Caiphus Semenya followed by the country’s award winners, Lira, Beatenberg, AKA, Cassper Nyovest, The Soil, Donald, The Arrows, iFani, Heavy K and Zimbabwe’s great Icon, Oliver Mtukudzi.
