Executive head: Media24

Media24 is a proud supporter of the arts, which, particularly in these unusual times we live in, proves to be a beacon of hope and inspiration. For the past twenty years, the annual Vrystaat Arts Festival and journey to the City of Roses have been a highlight on the calendar of many a festivalgoer. When stages and festival tents became empty due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the organisers, despite many challenges, quickly made plans to keep the festive fires burning.

Thank you to all the organisers and artists who have been impacted severely by the pandemic, for working so fervently to keep the arts alive. Thank you for providing us with inspiration, hope, and an escape by making it possible for us to still attend shows and now from the comfort of our homes.

As usual, the festival offers something for everyone – drama, comedy, musical and dance theatre, visual and word art. Make sure you buy your virtual tickets and enjoy this festival like no other.
