Kasi Vibe goes beyond organisers expectations

Chaos ensued at the fifth installment of Kasi Vibe festival on Saturday, 02 March 2019. The popular event attracted a large number of crowds as a result many of them were allegedly stopped from entering the festival by security guards who locked the gates.

Footage on social media at the event shows a crowd of people running through the gates of the Sam Nujoma stadium where the event took place with one of the gates damaged. Another video shows a stampede right in-front of the Kasi Vibe entrance.


One of the event attendees accused the organisers of not doing enough to deal with the large crowds even after they were aware that the number of people at the gates were increasing.


According to Journalist Mickey Nekomba some people were whipped by security guards and maced with teargas during the stampede at the gate.


Besides the drama and negativity that surrounded the event a lot of the event goers also appreciated the platform and what it does for the local business community.


The event organisers also apologised for the way they handled the situation at the festival and have committed to improving how the event is organised in the future.

Applications for volume six of Kasi Vibe Festival are open, visit www.kasivibenamibia.com to register.
