South Africa: North West Annual Mahika-Mahikeng Cultural Music Festival Takes a Gap Year

press release

Mahikeng — The annual Mahika-Mahikeng Cultural Music Festival which started four years ago, will this year take a gap year, so as to allow the North West Provincial Government to deliver a repackaged quality music and cultural festival next year.

We have, after careful and in-depth consideration, and after consulting with various stakeholders related to the event, come to a difficult decision not to stage the 2019 Mahika-Mahikeng Cultural Music Festival.

It is without doubt that the festival has grown in leaps and bounds, with small, medium and macro businesses having benefited from providing accommodation and other related services to visitors and music fanatics during the festival period, thus contributing immensely to the economy of Mahikeng.

We would therefore like to apologise to all patrons and business people, but we commit that the 2020 edition of the festival will be much better and much inclusive than the previous editions, with better economic spinoffs for the people of Mahikeng and the entire province of the North West.
