Dates for NAMAs reviewed

10 August 2020 | Art and Entertainment

The much anticipated 10th Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) is ready to bid farewell to a decade of Namibian music excellence.
In a statement released last week, the executive committee announced that the event will go virtual from 14 August until November.
These dates have now been reviewed, and herewith are the final dates below.
“As communicated last week, the NAMAs finale will still be held over a period of eight weekends. We have now moved the mini premium events from Saturdays and Sundays to Fridays and Saturdays and all events will start at 18h00.
“Nominees who may not be able to travel to Windhoek for any reason are obliged to inform the executive committee in writing, otherwise they will forfeit their performance fees and prize monies in the event that they win in line with the rules.”
The premium livestream concerts will be exclusively available to those who buy a ticket. Tickets have gone on sale already at Webtickets Namibia and nationwide at Pick n Pay stores at N$10 per show and N$100 for all shows.
“Once you’ve purchased a ticket, you will receive a message containing your secure unique login details to stream the show live. Your ticket gives you access to the live show and in addition the ability to view the concert again within 48 hours afterwards,” the statement read.
All concerts will be broadcast again on NBC every Sunday.
