The following announcement is heavy on our hearts.
It is with a great deal of heartache that we announce that Oshtoora will not be happening anymore.
One of the main foundations of Oshtoora was to create a sustainable alternative model that would not only keep the festival alive but help it thrive. Oshtoora was a sponsor free, participatory festival and we felt that this was the true road to sustainability. We are proud of what we achieved, however it was not enough to keep the festival going.
Oshtoora was a learning experience for everyone who crossed its path and we hope that the shared experiences created give birth to something better. We hope that more music festivals spring up and we are excited about what will become as a result. We would like to share our experiences & lessons learned and contribute to what comes next. You can reach us via private message on this page.
Thank you to the core team, our partners, volunteers and everyone who participated in Oshtoora. Your efforts, encouragement and participation made the last two years worthwhile.
To new beginnings.
