Keeping the momentum going

Dolphin Park is the place to be tomorrow

28 June 2019 | Art and Entertainment

South Africa’s Da Carpo will headline the Dolphin Park Aqua Fest tomorrow at Walvis Bay.

The festival’s public relations manager Rakela Nandago told tjil that in a nutshell, the Dolphin Park Aqua Fest is a unique experience combining entrepreneurship, tourism and entertainment during the slowest season of the year.

The event is organised by the Aqua Fest organising committee consisting of handpicked youth from Walvis Bay with previous events and activations backgrounds.

Nandago added that the event is set to help facilitate local awareness, demonstrate direct economic benefit to the Walvis Bay and Swakopmund communities, and act as a vehicle or starting point for youth involvement or change through additional local job creation.

Commenting on the line-up, Nandago emphasised that the Dolphin Park Aqua Fest is a strictly DJs-only event.

“We have a committee of coastal-based youth whose primary function is to ensure that all acts create the desired emotional contour to engage our audience and deliver entertainment value worth every cent spent by our audience,” said Nandago.

Da Capo from South Africa will be headlining the Dolphin Park Aqua Fest alongside Alexander Popov from Russia and a local line-up consisting of mostly Walvis Bay and Swakopmund based DJs. “This is to demonstrate the direct economic benefit we are encouraging for the community through the event.” The local DJs will include; DJ Castro, DJ Maggz, DJ Waxa, DJ Xavi, Pierre Pienaar, Banger Drums, DJ LX, DJ MicadE, DJ Dreas, Dj Mapiiano and Doka Music.

“This will be our inaugural Aqua Fest; we firmly believe in taking baby steps and as result this will also act as a research phase to survey our targeted audience and get input from the community on how we can grow the Aqua Fest brand together moving forward,” shared Nandago.

The organisers encourage residents of Walvis Bay and surrounding areas, SMEs, youth, community organisations, corporates, media and visitors from all over Namibia to come celebrate the community’s trade richness, dynamism, and cultural heritage. Tickets are available at Webtickets.
