Fest Napuan 2013 - Port Vila, Vanuatu

“Rize up with my culture / Stanap wetem kalja blong mi” 

Fest'Napuan is set to return to the Pacific capital Port Vila for the 18th consecutive year: 16-20th October 2013. Described by past performers One Million Dollars (New Zealand), as “a wall of thick, hot tropical air, coconut trees swaying in the breeze and the sweet sounds of Vanuatu's traditional string band music...it was just like the tropical island music you'd expect with ukuleles, tea chest basses and beautiful vocal harmonies”, Fest'Napuan offers one of the friendliest and more laid-back festival settings in the world.
