Montagu Youth Arts Festival 2019

Montagu Events - Montagu Youth Arts Festival 2019
We hope that you will again be part of this incredible performing arts platform!

RAD Foundation will host the annual Montagu Music, Art, Dance and Drama Festival (M.M.A.D.D) from 14th – 24th August 2019. This event in it’s 24th year takes place in Montagu in the Klein Karoo, on Route 62.

M.M.A.D.D draws talent mainly from primary, high school and tertiary education institutions in Cape Town and the surrounding areas, including Port Elizabeth, Mossel Bay, Worcester and George. The festival categories are Music, Art, Photography, Dance, Literature, Poetry, and Drama

The festival event was started in 1995 by local teachers, the local tourism office and volunteers and has grown in strength over the past 23 years. In 2011, Helen Gooderson took over the reins as Festival Director and renamed it as the Montagu Music Art Dance and Drama (M.M.A.D.D) Festival. She simultaneously registered the Rural Arts Development programme (R.A.D) as an NPO. The festival is managed by R.A.D and offers an excellent opportunity for talented youth from all communities to have an adjudicated, performance platform and gives developing talent the chance to network with artists and professionals from all over the province.
