A festival featuring a line-up of live entertainment and showcasing local artists and produce has opened in Manama.

Held at Water Garden City under the patronage of Capital Governor Shaikh Hisham bin Abdulrahman Al Khalifa, the Revive Festival will run until January 4.

More than 200 Bahraini business owners are taking part in the event which also features an interactive environment, with something for the entire family both in terms of the entertainment and activities set-up, along with artists, performers and talent showcased.

A whole host of activities have been planned and the event is designed to be eco-friendly, with recycling workshops available on-site and a number of vendors selling products made from recycled materials.

The structure of the festival itself is eco-friendly, having been made using recyclable and reusable material such as upcycled wood and steel and the electricity used coming partially from solar energy.

The festival will also host a farmer’s market to promote local produce.

Aside from the stalls, visitors will also be able to enjoy live music by Bahrain-based bands and DJs, and children can enjoy activities specially catered for them.

Every evening at 8pm will see a new performer take the stage and crowds also have the chance to take part in e-sport tournaments, cosplay competitions and raffle draws.

The festival will run every day from 4pm to midnight until January 4.
