Lore lo ojwa lo sale metsi; fa le kwakwaletse lo a robega. A Setswana proverb that means, “Mould the plant while it is still young and supple for when it is older and hardened, it will break.”


This year’s Festival Opening Night will embrace the practice of instilling the older generation’s wisdom in the youth. Featuring performances by a cast of young, vibrant musicians, the evening will highlight the Festival’s influence on Botswana’s art industry today and how we, as the audience, can nurture and support the existing talent.


Join us for an evening of live music, where tradition and modernity will meet, creating an atmosphere of soothing tones and unforgettable melodies.


Ticket: 120 (standard) / P200 (VIP – complementary refreshments included) / P60 (students and children under 18).
