Another year, another Spring Fiesta but differently. I walked around less, spent 70% of the time by the main stage, I even got to be on stage. and the setup of Spring Fiesta was different.
Let’s work on this backwards.
Setup change – What About Soul stage moved to the where the African Storm stage was, with the African Storm stage not being present this year. The Powerplay stage took a new home where the What About Soul stage used to be. I spoke to Lulo Cafe about this briefly, he said the What About Soul stage needed more space, which was true because it was would get way to packed later on the evening.
I was on stage – well not performing, just to record videos of Lady Zamar and take pictures of Da Capo. These 2 have really come a long way, their reception was so amazing.
I spent more time at the main stage – yes, which was a new one for me because I usually spend all the time at What About Soul stage. The main stage crowd is still weird for me because it moved between Dance Music and Hip Hop Music without warning or smooth transition. I can say the area has become more breathable now, compared to when I had to be in a tree. I also walked around way less but did catch Distruction Boyz performance, which was highly anticipated.
Some things they need to change though, clarification on the free drinks by Smirnoff, they didn’t provide any information on how that works. The VVIP area has way too many reserved tables that are closed off and then people who purchase tickets don’t get proper treatment as they have to stand or sit where they can’t see the stage. Howler could be quicker with repayment, a nice system but their customer service after the event is horrible.
Getting out of Spring Fiesta this time around was easier, proving that Spring Fiesta has mastered this even though they didn’t introduce anything new this year.
