The Festival of Fame was first initiated in 2002 as a project of the National School of the Arts and the Johannesburg Development Agency.
The six-day festival encompasses a wide variety of performances, workshops and exhibitions under its "truly famous, newly famous and the about-to-be-famous" theme. It showcases the talents of young people, up-and-coming stars and established artists and affords the "wannabe's" an opportunity to engage with professional artists.
Some of the events and performances include an Open Mic session, a musical, comedy acts, music and a Dance Spectrum including Jazz, Contemporary, Flamenco, exciting and vibrant Gumboot dancing, Tap and much more. There is something for everyone.
Events and performances start at 09h00 every day, and continue throughout the day.
