Sautisol had earlier this year announced they were taking a break singing together to allow for individual projects. They dubbed the move away together. Despite the rumor mills that the group had split, the band pulled an outstanding event. The highly expected event even had the tickets sold out. Therefore, it’s a no brainier given the amount of hype and the pictures and posts doing rounds on the socials. The concert was a win-win. So what could have led to the success of the event?
First, the band commands and enjoys a huge following both locally and globally. For instance, on Instagram, they have a 2.1 million fan base. This makes them highly sought after with their ardent fans, always willing to attend their concerts.
The concert also came at the right time, with all systems favoring it. It was convenient on a long weekend, and when the COVID-19 gathering restrictions were easy. This saw party hungry people receiving the event positively, which saw it become a success.
The music the individual members were creating is a crowd puller and would have enticed their die -hard fans to want to see them perform live. The band has been consistent with the quality of music they create, which makes their content highly sought after.
The artists present also gave an electric performance, giving their best to the fans. This works like magic to the attendees as they all got to get value for their money. The videos circulating on the interweb are a testament to the charge the concert had.
The organizers also put effort into ensuring that the event lived to the fans’ expectations. Right from the posters to the D-day, they delivered the promise. All covid-19 rules check following, also made the fest sell out.
Remember, the band had issues with the way the previous year Solfest was organized citing that the organizers had upset their fans. Hence the band was envisioning that this year they would be in charge to ensure they met the fans interests.
Sautisol band has withstood the test of time and keep getting nominated for awards and winning these awards. This makes them an ideal band with people eager and ready to support them. This is also a major factor that contributed to the successful Solfest.
