WOZANI Africa Events is set to host a unique event- The Red Desert Festival­ - on Cascades Farm along the Old Pont road not far from the Red Desert in Port Edward, known to be the smallest desert in the world.

Vicky Wentzel of Wozani Africa Events, said the The Red Desert Festival will take place whenever it is a full moon weekend.

Saturday, 21 May will be a full moon and the community is invited to share the experience.

“On the night the people can enjoy a chilled full moon evening in a beautiful garden adjacent to the world’s smallest desert, featuring a unplugged acoustic line-up of some of South Africa’s most loved folk musicians,” said Wentzel­.

She said Madala Kunene, “king of the Zulu guitar” will be playing some of his haunting and hypnotic rhythms, while Guy Buttery, one of the finest exponents of the acoustic guitar around will play his dynamical, deep grooves.

Locally born Aden Hinds of Hinds Brothers will also be on line-up playing folk rock,country Indies music.

Wentzel said there will also be a moonlight market offering handmade and unique items for sale.

“A variety of organic food will also be served at The Burlesque Café Food Hall,” she said

“South Coasters are urged to book their tickets on early because they are limited,” said Wentzel.

The next festival of this nature will be in September.
