There are plans on inviting a celebrity chef to engage with fans and host a live cooking session that can be broadcast on a live stream. There will be a traditional corner for all cultures to encourage and showcase the diversity in Swakopmund, Namibia and the rest the world. The culinary industry has often been overlooked as a career path, the festival plans on inviting culinary schools to host information sharing sessions with prospective culinary artists.
Various musicians, bands and DJs will be showcasing their talents throughout the entire event whilst event patrons enjoy the pleasures of the exhibitions on hand. The event organizers have a vision of making the FMF Festival a highlight on the event calendar, not only for Swakopmund but nationally and across the SADC region. Therefore, the festival plans on involving international artists that have a satisfactory record of attracting large crowds and an exceptional brand image. This will be beneficial to our vendors, sponsors and partners as thousands of fans will flock to the venue to enjoy electric performances by their favourite artists whilst enjoying the other event element deliverables that The Festival has on offer.
The Great Pop Up is a fashion market that sees Namibian brands under one roof. A platform for our local brands to sell their products while at the same time create a shopping experience for the public. The Great Pop Up’s main objective is to bring awareness to local brands as they are not well represented in local retail. Influxed with international retail stores who do not carry local brands, the retail industry does not allow our fashion brands to grow. Thus it’s created to act as a platform that motivates the purchase and celebration of our local brands.
