Every year for the past nine years, the Innibos Arts Festival has welcomed an influx of people to Nelspruit, in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa. Recently, these people have exceeded 100 000 in number. In the annual Fiesta Awards in Cape Town, Innibos was voted the country’s most popular festival and, watching the attendance numbers escalate every year, this is not surprising.
Innibos began in 2003 and will, therefore, be celebrating its tenth consecutive year in 2013. So, the next festival is likely to be an even greater success as locals and tourists flock from all over to share in the fun and celebrations.
Being an arts festival, Innibos focuses on theatre and children’s theatre, cabaret, literature, dancing, drama, and so on. More than 200 artists, actors and musicians attend it each year, eager to showcase their talents and creative ingenuity, and to receive feedback, inspiration and comments from their valued spectators.
