Bringing joy to our hearts

“My colleagues and I in the entertainment industry suffered financially over the past two years and we were not able to perform on stage like we always have done over the years.  I saw an opportunity to create productions and showcases that will literally help us bring joy to our hearts but also to those of fellow music enthusiasts too. As Covid-19 has divided us all, all artists are looking forward to being united on stage after two years of enduring the life-changing pandemic. We are all excited to sing our hearts out in The Mother City,” he says.

Unity On The Square will also host a number of markets and vendors throughout the day including, Halaal food trucks, local traders, a coffee bar, mobile data giveaways as well as event and artist merchandise for sale.

Adams says the festival will implement strict Covid-19 protocols, to ensure music enthusiasts are enjoying the festivities while also being safe.
