The highlight performer, South African Music Award winner Amanda Black had sold out all her shows.

Black said it was her first time performing at the festival, adding that she was surprised that she was asked to do another show as she sold out her initial booking.

She received love from the crowd, with people singing along to her popular songs including the hit “Amazulu”.

“Unfortunately I didn’t get to experience the whole of the festival, but the little experience that I had was out of this world, from the drama to the music show, people there ranged from adults to kids who were as incredible as I was delighted to entertain them,” said Black.

There were stalls from local crafters that had visitors’ queuing to pick up unique items.

One of the Crafters, Nomonde Madlalisa, said she had sold more items than she ever did in the past three years that she has been part of the festival.

Madlalisa specialises in traditional Xhosa wear and beading.

“The festival is a good opportunity for me to make money within a short space of time, this is how I make a living and I’m going to continue coming as it has become part of my life,” said Madlalisa.

The festivities closed with a bang with the annual closing parade from the Rhodes University down the town’s famous cathedral street.
