OyOsMusic Festival on the cards

Preparations for the OyOsMusic Festival which has been scheduled for the month of December are underway. The program which will provide the actual dates, venues and times will be released soon. The music festival which is a brainchild of OyOsMusic will include performances from various local musicians, dancers and spoken word performers.

OyOsMusic was birthed after realising the big challenge of music piracy in Zimbabwe resulting in artists failing to make anything from their hard input into the music and video production. OyOsMusic therefore came up with an online music digital platform that allows artists to sell their music online and realise revenue through music purchases and downloads. The platform aims at reducing piracy and creating other revenue streams for the country.

The arts festival is also a direct response to the identified gap. The festival will offer an advocacy platform around artists’ rights, recognition and appreciation through the use of different arts modes such as music, dance and spoken word. Among the performers will be the musicians signed up by OyOsMusic. Workshops around artist’s rights and entrepreneurial skills will also be conducted during the festival in order to educate artists on making money and sustaining themselves using their art.

This will be a good opportunity for upcoming and established talented musicians of different age groups who are struggling to make a living through their music to express themselves. Stakeholders include different relevant Government departments and organisations which focus on the arts, artists’ rights and recognition.
