Overview[edit]

The Little Hearts Festival, was a three-day music festival held in Cape Town, South Africa, held between 5 – 7 December 2008 in aid of three children's charities: Cotland’s Baby Sanctuary, CHOC, and Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital. The festival featured the performances of twenty-four artists at the V&A Waterfront Amphitheatre.[1]

The fundamental philosophy of the event was that all costs were absorbed by the organisers sponsors and artists directly so that the charities would receive full benefit of donations.

All total revenue derived from the event, not just "proceeds", was collected by the charities directly, in addition to over 3’000 toys collected for the children under the care of the charities. The toys were delivered to the children over the month of December 2008 as Christmas presents.[2]
