The festival is one of the most anticipated events on the Namibian entertainment calendar following popular acts like Boyz II Men and P-Square which drew thousands of fans from all corners of the country and abroad. As founder and main sponsor of the event, Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL) – a subsidiary of the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group – through its premium brand, Windhoek Draught, identified the opportunity to create amazing experiences for their consumers by bringing Namibians and their international music icons together.

NBL National Marketing manager, Rosemary Shippiki says: “We believe in creating memorable moments for our consumers that money cannot buy. Music is a great vehicle to connect with consumers and create an opportunity for them to socialise with friends. Some Namibians actually travel to South Africa and abroad to attend music festivals and we identified the need to create opportunities for our people to also enjoy these events on their home soil. Our consumers have expressed their appreciation towards Windhoek Draught for delivering world class events through the previous two concerts that also sees local artists share the stage with iconic brands such as R. Kelly.”
