AWESOME MUSIC (article first published : 2000-07-28)

The highly innovative and successful first Festival of Living Treasures was held in the magnificent surroundings of Shongweni Resources Reserve as part of the millennium celebrations in Durban last year. Dubbed "Africa's Greatest Music Festival", the organisers intend to host a second similar event over the heritage day weekend this year from September 22 to 25.

The inaugural festival was applauded and hailed as a great experience by participants and visitors alike. In the region of 7,000 visitors attended the four-day music event to savour some of the most phenomenal boundary-breaking artists and musical collaborations ever to be seen in South Africa.

The festival was incident-free and characterised by its relaxed atmosphere, good humour, harmonious interaction, efficient infrastructure, integrity and supportive audiences.

The Living Treasures concept has been broadened to include a whole sustainable lifestyles philosophy. The Shongweni music festival will become known as the Awesome Africa Music celebration will spearhead the Living Treasures concept. Musicians from South Africa and beyond will once again descend on the pristine nature reserve to create a long-weekend of magical innovative music.
