A little more about the Drake Music Festival in KZN

I am incredibly excited to play at the first year of this new festival and will also be master of ceremonies for some of the day, so do get involved to be one of those who can say “I was there when it all began.”

“The Drake Music Festival is a small acoustic and blues festival that will take place on Saturday, 17th December 2011. As a South African musician, I have found that there are not enough platforms supporting original SA music. My hope is to make this festival an annual event in which we showcase the best in SA music and help add to the sustainability and long life of original music. The aim is not to compete with other festivals, but to add to the overall SA music scene, enriching SA culture and nourishing audiences with superb home grown music.  A festival by artists for artists, for the benefit of all South Africans.”  Josie Field 

Line-up: John Ellis, Guy Buttery, Nibs van der Spuy, Josie Field,Nate Maingard, Shannon Hope, Joshua Grierson, Naming James and Malory Torr
