I must admit, last year when I was invited to attend Gaborone International Music & Culture week event(s) by a performer I thought it was one of those fly-by-night event(s),little did i know.Up to now I am still regretting not attending last year. I must also admit that yay, I am one of those that are highly looking forward to attend it this year. I mean I don’t want to be seated at home again looking at people’s live videos on Facebook having a very good time as they are ushered with good music from locals and international artists.
One thing to note though is that GIMC is not just about the last day music festival. It is a multi discipline event hence called Gaborone International Music & Culture ‘WEEK’. That entire week there are events ranging from Comedy, Poetry, Fashion, Jazz, Golf day and lastly the Music Festival. This year (2017) the event(s) will be from the end of August to first week of September, precisely from the 26th of August to 2nd of September 2017(Music Festival at Gaborone National Stadium from 1pm till late).
