Revellers Invade Ghanzi Invasion Festival!


It was a real invasion over the weekend in Ghanzi when revellers braved the chilly weather for the annual ‘Ghanzi Invasion Festival,’ held at the end of the five-day long Ghanzi Agricultural Show.

The second edition of the festival which featured both local and international artists turned out be a successful event, and according to organisers, it attracted massive crowds. The festival which offered a night of enjoyable experience featured both Botswana and South African artists – headlined by South Africa’s Stimela hitmaker, Ntate Stunna and Paige of Nginyazfela fame.

The two did not disappoint as they got revelers go all out crazy dancing and singing along to their trending tunes.

As for local artists the show also featured Vee Mampeezy, Sereetsi and the natives, Franco, Chef Gustos, Han C, Khoisan, Nature BW, Overthrust who also gave their best performances.

Thousands of revelers were in attendance despite the cold weather and they left the show when the sun had risen the following morning. The second edition brought a delightful festival that was also meant to give out to the community of Ghanzi and surrounding areas.

 In an interview, the festival’s organiser, Moxx Gaolape indicated that the event was a success as all artists that were on the lineup showed up and gave their best performances to the excitement of the revelers in attendance. Gaolape added that the sound and the stage were also on point to the satisfaction of the night crawlers.

The security was tight that night and safety was a high priority as ambulances were on standby, police were also on escort together with the bouncers for security reasons, giving the night crawlers a safe and enjoyable night.

Gaolape however noted that some of the minor issues they encountered besides the cold weather conditions was the road to the festival which was quite sandy and most smaller cars were having trouble getting to the parking area while others got stuck. The organiser stated that they are working on improving the roads and parking spot to ensure that there is smooth movement of cars in future.

He also pleaded with the attendees to always get early bird tickets in future to avoid causing traffic jam at the entrance on the day of the event. “Most artists get to the stage late because of the traffic caused by revelers buying tickets and some trying to negotiate the price of entry last minute,” Gaolape said.

Gaolape had earlier noted that the festival was also meant to give back to the community of Ghanzi and surrounding areas through charity work. He revealed that prior the event, they handed over toiletries to some schools in Ghanzi as well as two kits for two social clubs in the area. He added that they had also during the festival engaged the Ghanzi Taxi Service to transport the revelers to the venue as a way of empowering them as well.
