It’s no news that Rock The Nation is one of the major festival in Botswana. They have 2 major festivals annually, Overthrust Wintermetal mania and Rock the Nation Rockfest. It has been a good year for the metal-heads in Botswana as Overthrust has represented Africa in Europe and they keep raising the Botswana metal flag HIGH.
Rock the Nation is a Live Rock Music Talent Showcase (Concert), whose mission is to highlight the existence & excellence of the local rock bands in Botswana. The initiative is devoted to building awareness and creating opportunities for local musicians and to raise the profile of Botswana’s local rock music scene. Rock The Nation seeks to partner with local musicians, arts organizations, venues and locally owned businesses to create performance opportunities and new avenues for local music exploration.
