Each year, the CTIJF grows in strength and popularity. This is underlined by the record sell-out of its initial weekend passes released in November last year, and the fact that there are very limited day passes, private hospitality and individual hospitality packages available.
Education for Kids
Enjoying the excitement and the unique learning experience of being exposed to a world-class event will be some 200, Grade 11 and 12 students. They will once again participate in the respected training and development workshops and programmes that are the lifeblood of the festival, as much as the artists who perform here.
