Aim Of The Festivals: There are South Africans living wordwide. The aim of Afri-World fest is to promote South-African artists, our culture and food around the world. We also want to learn from our host countries. With that in mind we started organising these festivals. A secondary aim is to promote new and upcuming artists. It is difficult for new artists to get a gig at festivals, we will give them that break.
Themes and what to expect: All festivals are child friendly. We also cater for the disabled. Each festival will vary depending of the country where it is hosted, but the overall theme stay the same. When we have a festival in the UK (England) we will invite some local artists as well as people from the community to bring their culture, food and tradition to the festival. If we do a festival in Scotland, or Wales we will do the same there. We follow the same rule no matter where in the world the festival takes place.
