NAMROCK 2017 – Get Your Rock On!
Tafel Lager NamRock 2017 is up, at it and coming at you fast as the nation’s rockers flex their fingers and tune their guitars for Namibia’s biggest rock music festival. Boasting three stages and more than 20 local acts, this year the legendary two-day festival will take place at the iconic Warehouse Theatre on 24 and 25 March.
Brought to you by Tafel Lager and NamRock Music Productions, the 2017 Tafel Lager NamRock festival celebrates its twelfth year of showcasing exceptional local talent.
“The emphasis of the NamRock festival has been, since inception, the showcasing of Namibian bands and their original music,” says festival founder Michael Ott.
“This year we decided to have a more diverse music selection in order to appeal to a wider audience.
We’d like to thank Tafel Lager, as the main sponsor of the Namrock festival since its rocking start in 2004, as well as Red Heart Rum, Olmeca Tequila, 99fm, Hitradio, Kleiner Keiler, DB Audio and Red Bull for their support of this 100% local festival.”
Audiences can look forward to the Tafel Lager Main Stage stylings of Famaz Attak, Rushour, The Fate of Miss H, Blikweg, RAT, Bourbon & Traffic, Lize Ehlers, Savannah Afros, Elemotho and Sean K while The Ells, Solasphera, Blend and Romulus strike more soulful chords on the Acoustic Stage.
Rocking hard, old school with a bit of blues, folk en in Afrikaans ook, for the first time ever, the 2017 NamRock festival will also feature a DJ stage where the likes of Ace Da Bass, DJ Cello, DJ Alu, DJ Ambizzy and DJ RU will provide cutting edge beats for electronic and house music fans.
Another first for the festival is the New Rock slot. Calling all up-and-coming rockers to show festival organizer Mike Ott what they’ve got, NewRock will give one band the opportunity to play up to three songs on the NamRock stage.
Chock-full of spot prizes, giveaways and offering one social media savvy attendee a VIP experience in The Loft Chill Zone for their photogenic self and five of their friends, NamRock will be adding a real life legend to the mix and will be hosted by ex Dylan’s Pub owner Tony Fourie.
With festival food by Flaunt, photobooths and more, Tafel Lager NamRock 2017 is coming home to Rock and Roll like never before on Friday, 24 March from 18h00 and Saturday, 25 March from 16h00.
