Woodstock rocks to fight poverty

Botswana rockers, Remuda, Crackdust and Wrust join veteran campaigners, Nosey Road and Metal Horizon at Gaborone’s Lions Park next Saturday at the local version of ‘Woodstock’ to raise funds for the underprivileged, according to show organiser, Ivo Sbrana.

The original Woodstock Music Festival was staged in 1969 in the United States as the Music and Arts Fair providing three days of peace and music. The festival has since spread to many countries around the world to raise money for charity under the banner of Woodstock.

Sbrana says they intend to help underprivileged people in Botswana, to show love as well as uphold the Vision 2016 pillars. He urged rock lovers to come forward in large numbers to show the nation that rock music is about caring and helping one another.

Some of the reputable Rock bands which will perform at the festival are renowned South African rock bands, Rhutz and Architecture Of Aggression (AOA) while the local hosts will be Nosey Road, Skinflint and Remuda from Maun together with the Clement Jackson Band.
