The Rock ‘n’ Roll Namibia 2023 live music concert is promising an unforgettable experience with Jo Black and Die Heuwels Fantasties headlining the show this coming Saturday at the Doc Jubber Hockey field in Windhoek.
The highly-anticipated annual music and arts extravaganza is the brainchild of Mindscape Events, and its managers have confirmed that they are gearing up to deliver an unforgettable experience come tomorrow. In typical Mindscape fashion, the concert will be a hybrid of music and cultural tourism, designed to bring together families, friends, colleagues, and enthusiastic music lovers.
The festival showcases a diverse lineup of talented artists and this year, the spotlight will be on renowned South African artistes Jo Black and Die Heuwels Fantasties.
The multi-faceted Afrikaans singer, songwriter, and motivational speaker, Jo Black has captivated audiences across the nation with his infectious energy and heartfelt performances. With a passion for people and a knack for storytelling through music, he has become a household name in the industry.
The dynamic duo Die Heuwels Fantasties will light up the crowd with their electrifying performances, and are famous for their innovative sound blending alternative rock, electronic elements, and pop sensibilities.
Rock ‹n› Roll Namibia will this year be offering more than just exceptional live music, but a sense of class and lifestyle for a nation well along its healing path, away from a devastating pandemic.
The Jubber Hockey field promises to be a scenic mosaic of art installations, studded by food stalls serving delectable culinary delights, and a vibrant atmosphere that encourages attendees to connect and create lasting memories. Several local talents are on the list to perform.
Talented songstress Lin-Marie Coetzee said she will be sticking to her roots-playing music, (Adelle inspired with an extra drum), and that she is excited for her fans to hear what’s to come.
“The line-up is absolutely out of this world, not only do we have two amazing South African ‘bands’ but we have the best of Namibia. There is such a big variety and there’s definitely something for everyone! So excited to share a day of rock and roll with all music lovers,” she told this publication.
The Vaughn Ahrens Band has been busy since the last time they were at Rock ‘n’ Roll.
“We’ve been playing on international stages and have learned a lot from other big artists on our tours. This time around, we’ll be bringing more music, more energy and a whole lot more vibes. The Namibian people can really expect a very energetic and fun show from this year,” said the band.
Riaan Smit, another of Namibia’s rock gems said he will be belting out all of his songs, including the latest release titled ‘Never Ending Dream’, plus a couple of songs From Crimson House.
“I’ll be joined by legendary sax player Gareth Harvey from Crimson House and we make a powerful duo. We got a couple of tricks up our sleeve. There’s nothing like our show in Namibia, and it’s a whole lot of fun,” he said.
The prolific Savanah Collins has been added to the list as well and she will be picking up her Fender electric guitar, for the first time in a while.
To add to the excitement, joining her on drums will be none other than Wayne Wentzel.
“In addition, I’ll be releasing my brand-new original song ‘Back to me’ for the first time live! Rock ‘n’ Roll Namibia 2023 is an event not to be missed; it is an outstanding festival, professionally organised, not only for our highlight SA acts but also for an array of exceptionally talented Namibian musicians. I encourage everyone to buy tickets and support this event, designed specifically for music lovers!” said the artiste.
