The festival is about proudly celebrating the African culture by leveraging major entertainment touch points across entertainment. This year’s focus will be on reinvigorating commercial opportunities and exchange among South African SMMEs, as well as boosting transactional trade between different operators.

It speaks to a broad audience, with differing touch points spanning from African food market, business talks, music festival, and fashion & craft district presented by both established and young aspiring creatives across Africa.
