MOBILE Telecommunications Company (MTC) spokesperson Fikameni Mathias says the MTC OASISONE Skeleton Coast Festival, which was poorly attended over the weekend at Walvis Bay, was a good lesson.
“We are, however, confident that this learning experience would only make the second edition bigger and better as we have already agreed on a number of changes, which would undoubtedly make this one of the biggest events,” he says.
The three-day event received a low turnout, with some artists’ performances being rescheduled.
“We should also be mindful that there are two legs to the event: The first is to give artists a platform to express themselves musically and use their voices, and the second is to promote and protect our wildlife,” he says.
Mathias has thanked stakeholders and the Municipality of Walvis Bay for their support.
“We look forward to presenting the 2024 event with a host of changes that would not only entertain, but also inspire the fight in protecting our wildlife,” he says. – unWrap.Online
