A whole year has passed since the last Muizenberg Festival. Time has disappeared which has brought us to the final week leading up to the launch of the new and improved, Muizenberg Festival 2017! This year is going to be an explosion of entertainment, culture, art and many more local talents showcasing their brilliance!
This year the Get Out, Get South team has been selected as the go to event calendar portal for the festival. We will be the team who keeps you up to date with what’s happening next and what you most definitely shouldn’t miss out on!
We know there’s going to be an overload of events, dates, times, places to be, people to see... But we will make sure that we do all the thinking for you. We will make sure that in amongst all the noise, we will quiet it down, and make sure that you don’t miss a thing!
We are in the final stretch leading up to this two week extravaganza of fun and entertainment!
What was last year’s Muizenberg Festival like?
The 2016 edition of the Muizenberg Festival was a culmination of our sea side town's brilliant wealth of creative and natural treasures. The week long programme represented the celebration of Muizenberg's diversity in musical expression as much as it was an honoring of the mountain, vlei and sea. We were treated to constant brilliance right from the morning through to the evening, each day of this wonderful festival, showcasing our diversity and awesomeness.
Do we have any first time brands joining us?
Each year is a collaboration of new things. We have a huge line-up of local artists who will be performing across multiple stages in the town. The best way to check out the line-up is to stay connected through the Get Out, Get South online event guide.
This year sees us dividing the festival into multiple mini-festivals – from the Word Festival (talks and discussions around hot political and environmental topics) to the Film Festival, showcasing local film talent, to the Music Festival with an incredible line-up and the community Festival – incorporating various community projects. There is so much on the go!
What were some of the favorites last year?
The parade and the concert in the park, hosted on the last day of the festival are an absolute highlight for everyone. This is the culmination of the entire Muizenberg festival spirit into a single moment. A celebration of all the event hosts, and event participants and all that they have achieved and showcased for the last few weeks. Live music, artistic performances in the sunshine. Family fun for all.
What is your goal as, Get Out, Get South, for the festival?
Get Out, Get South aims to introduce its unique eventing platform to the community of the south, and create an ongoing central hub for activities in the South throughout the year. Our aim is always to create and drive community participation, connecting event hosts with the community.
We believe this year will see 1000’s of people discovering new ways in which to connect with their audience and to have more successful outcomes with their engagement. We wanted to create something for our community and help us stay connected.
