May 27, 2011

16 and 17 September, Wanderers –stadium, Windhoek: Westlife, Kurt Darren, Theuns Jordaan, Freshlyground, Die Heuwels Fantasties and many more.

If you enjoyed last year’s Hart van Windhoek festival, then this year brace yourself for double the fun. Hart van Windhoek 2011 takes place on 16 and 17 September at the Wanderers Stadium in Windhoek. Not only will festival-goers be entertained by more than 35 top artists and their bands, they’re also in for a special treat with internationally acclaimed group Westlife coming all the way from Ireland to perform on Friday 16 September!

“We are incredibly excited about this year’s festival,” says Willem Breytenbach, general manager of Media 24 Weekly Magazines. “This year will be even bigger and better than last year and Westlife in particular promises to draw large crowds.”

This is the second year Huisgenoot, in partnership with Hilltop Live, will be presenting this festival. FNB Namibia, KykNet, Tafel Lager, Shoprite and Checkers also form part of the team working to make this an unforgettable weekend. Shoprite and Checkers are in charge of the food court, where hungry festival-goers will find a variety of stalls offering all sorts of traditional Windhoek food.

The finalists of the Shoprite and Checkers Namibian Boerewors competition will also be there to give people a small taste of their winning recipes and the winner of this competition will walk away with a brand new car.

Tafel Lager is the official sponsor and will provide more than 100 metres of bar space, while FNB Namibia will offer financial services. KykNet will be there to capture all the best moments on camera and the kids can also look forward to the KykNet play area, where there will be fun games, jumping castles and characters from their favourite TV programmes.

Apart from Westlife, there will also be performances by Romanz, Nianell, Kurt Darren, Theuns Jordaan, Charlize Berg, Heinz Winckler, Charné, Kobus Muller, Viljoen Retief, Adam Tas, Wicus van der Merwe, George Meiring, Adam, Snotkop, MoniQue, Jay, Bongi, Corlea, Melissa van der Spuy, Broers, Lee Scott Die Heuwels Fantasties, Nicholis Louw, David Fourie, Dewald Louw, Sorina – die Flooze, Karlien Husselman, Freshlyground and the Namibian artists Ludik and Pieter Naudé.
