THE annual outdoor music festival, Ebubeleni Festival, will take place on Friday, December 30, at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, to provide homecoming entertainment to all those that work and study far away.

The festival attracts festival goers from all over the country who trek down to Gqeberha to attend the festival.

This year, the festival will be celebrating 11 years of bringing popular national and local artists to the event.

Over the 10 years of Ebubeleni’s existence, the festival prides itself on contributing immensely to the economy of the city and province through visitors attending the event increasing tourism numbers; creating temporary jobs and the use of event service providers; providing a platform for local artists to showcase their talents and earn some money while bringing entertainment to the people of the Bay during the festive season. ?

The Ebubeleni Festival forms part of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality’s annual Summer Season programme and is the only long-standing annual cultural flagship event in Nelson Mandela Bay. Ebubeleni’s main event is the biggest one-day festival in the Eastern Cape which attracts over 27 000 revellers.

This year, the artist line-up boasts Gqeberha- born Zonke, Ami Faku, Vusi Nova and Phinda; Makhadzi; Msaki; Mandisi Dyantyis Nomfundo Mho; Musa Keys; K.O and 10 local artists.

Gates open at 10:00 with the event starting at 12:00 and ending at 02:00.

There is also no entry after 00:00.
