Jazz on the Rocks was successfully introduced to Tieties Bay, Paternoster in 2011. The event was a great success, enabling quality family time in the great outdoors. As a result Jazz on the Rocks will now be replicated in Mossel Bay. The festival is scheduled for March 22 to 25, 2018 at the De Bakke Santos Resort.

While the event harnesses the healing forces of music and nature, social entrepreneurship is at the heart of all Camissa Solutions’ endeavours. Camissa Solutions is committed to training youth from host communities in all areas of festival design and management. It is anticipated that the success experienced in Paternoster will be replicated in Mossel Bay.

Social cohesion at the heart of the festival

“Our vision is to bring healing to our still fragmented society,” says Camissa Solutions CEO, Lovetta Bolters. “Social cohesion is ultimately at the heart of any successes to be achieved. Our mission is for all people to benefit, economically, from our effort, and the expected knock-on effect that tourism will bring. Research shows that the economic impact from the Jazz on the Rocks project in Paternoster amounted to over R800 million in the past five years. We anticipate the Mossel Bay project to yield even more economic impact and create jobs.”

Camissa Solutions co-director Clarence Ford said: “March 2018 marks the start of a journey that will bring profound impact to the beautiful town of Mossel Bay. The event itself will stimulate the fledgling cultural industries of the Southern Cape coast. Moreover, entrepreneurial development will accrue to especially youth in the region.”
