CREATIVES: Kaya New World Music Festival brands Wales as "cool" place to visit

WalesOnline reports that  Kaya Music Festival  founder, Thabani Nyoni, feels "Kaya offers something different to the local and UK festival crowd by also promoting creative skills and job opportunities".

The goal is to attract people from "away" to help boost the local economy. A report by the Welsh Music Foundation looked at the now hugely successful Wales' Green Man Festival. In 2009, 77% came from outside Wales to attend that festival and generated  £8.0 million in local expenditures. In its first year the Kaya Festival has attracted more people that the Green Man Festival did in its first year in 2003.
