The upper west creative art industry especially music has over the last five years seen tremendous revival and growth. It continues to witness the influx of vibrant new artistes alongside pockets of record labels and creative event organizers. Most importantly though, is the rising and rousing interest the industry is generating from the otherwise uninterested populace.
The livewire of every industry is it’s financial solidity and the creative art industry over here generates over 80% of it’s funds from the organization of shows and performances. It is therefore not surprising that artistes ,event organizers and other industry players has over the years tried their possible best to insure that two or more major events doesn’t happen on the same day. The reasoning is that it will likely divide the fans going a long way to affect the events negatively. Others are however of the opinion that the fan base has grown large enough for the municipality to successfully host two or more events.
Well these schools of thought are about to be put to a real test as not two but three major events headlined by some of the regions finest is set to come off on the 26th of December, 2020.
