Greenback Media Group has had to cut down the 2 days Mother City Live Arts Experience into a one day festival in order to accommodate students who are big supporters of the festival. The initial dates for the festival were confirmed in consideration of that students would be done with their exams and be able to enjoy the festival. Due to the #FeesMustFall protests, tertiary exams have been pushed back and now fall right in the middle of the initial proposed days of the festival. The team will host Mother City Live on the 28th of November 2015.
“Students have been showing a lot of love to the festival over the last few months and some of the artists that form part of the lineup are University students therefore they would have not been able to rehearse and perform on those dates, especially the Friday. This is why we felt the need to have the event take place only on a Saturday which is more convenient for everyone.” says Greenback Media Group founder, Tashinga Mutakwa.
The Mother City Live will be a one day family-friendly event that will take place at The Great Wizoo on the 28th of November 2015. “Making the event take place in one day is a blessing in disguise. People will now be able to experience it all in half the time. We are now making it a family friendly event, which makes for an amazing way to spend a summer day.” says Tashinga.
Mother City Live Arts Festival weekend ticket-holders will have the option of using their tickets at the Mother City Live Saturday and get a refund of the R20 difference or get a full R100 refund should they decide to not attend the Mother City Live.
“Mother City Live is a brainchild of individuals who have Cape Town artists at heart. It would have to take a lots of sticks, stones and fire to stop us from insuring that the event happens” says Tashinga.
The Mother City Live lineup will be announced on Friday, 13 November 2015. Keep your eyes glued on our Social Media accounts.
