In Flight Magazine - - FOMO -

The Okavango Delta Mu­sic Fes­ti­val will cel­e­brate African mu­sic in a wild and an­cient for­est, sur­rounded by a beau­ti­ful flood­plain in the Okavango Delta from 31st Au­gust to 2nd Septem­ber. The event prom­ises over 20 unique mu­si­cians and bands, as well as cir­cus acts, drum­ming cir­cles, and fire-dancers from all over South­ern Africa, for Botswana res­i­dents and vis­it­ing tourists to en­joy whilst si­mul­ta­ne­ously cre­at­ing a sus­tain­able way of al­le­vi­at­ing poverty in the Tsutsu be ga com­mu­nity, lo­cated 27 km from Maun. The Tsutsu be ga com­mu­nity will host the mu­sic fes­ti­val an­nu­ally to raise funds and help im­prove the liveli­hoods of its com­mu­nity mem­bers.The fes­ti­val will be held in the dry sea­son when the floods from An­gola sur­round the is­lands with crys­tal-clear Okavango wa­ters, trans­form­ing the area into a watery won­der­land. Fes­ti­val go­ers can also look for­ward to a cin­ema, a yoga camp, beer tents, food stalls, kids’ en­ter­tain­ment, cabaret, a silent disco, and lo­cal art in­stal­la­tions.
