Namibian talent reigns: Standard Bank 09 Music Festival showcases 100% local line-up

THE upcoming 2023 edition of the Standard Bank 09 Music Festival is set to make waves by featuring an exclusive all-Namibian line-up for the first time in its history.

In partnership with Mshasho Productions, the festival has established itself as a prominent event, drawing music enthusiasts in numbers each year.

The festival will be held on 29 and 30 September at the University of Namibia (Unam) Stadium in Windhoek.

At the recent sponsor and media launch in Windhoek’s northern industrial area, King Tee Dee expressed his enthusiasm and excitement about this year’s event.

He emphasised the festival’s commitment to showcasing local talent.

“We are thrilled to shine the spotlight on Namibian artists, which has always been our dedicated focus, but this year we’re taking it to the next level. Brace yourselves for an unforgettable experience with our exceptional line-up as we deliver something truly remarkable,” he says.

The Standard Bank 09 Music Festival has consistently delivered memorable experiences, and the 2023 edition aims to be a remarkable celebration of Namibian talent.

Carlos Gurirab, a member of the festival’s organising committee, reassured concert-goers that logistics and safety remain top priorities.

“Our mission is to provide an enhanced experience unlike any other. The festival spans over two days, with a special focus on the youth on Friday,” said Gurirab.

The Friday line-up will showcase the best emerging Namibian artists, including DJ Dreas, Yeezir, DJ Spuzza, Don Bae, and Nino Pequeno. These exceptionally talented performers, all under 26 years old, and with a strong youth following, are set to electrify the audience with their captivating performances.

The Saturday line-up includes renowned music icons such as Tate Buti, Gazza, King Tee Dee, TopCheri and Big Ben.

“On Saturday, families can join us with their children for an action-packed afternoon that includes sport activities like tug-of-war and football,” said Gurirab.

Those interested in participating in the social and corporate sport’ tournaments can look forward to more information in the press leading up to the event.
