The idea for this fantastic tent is from André Heller.
The highest point of the main tent rises up 26 meter. More than 2000 spectators can be seated. The main tent is surrounded by several smaller tent-palaces.
CANOBBIO started with the development of the tent-palaces for AFRIKA! AFRIKA! in spring of 2005. Static and construction were calculated with the most recent computer technology and coordinated with the TÜV (German Technical Inspection Authority). The procedure of setting up of this tent-city is a recurring challenge even for the international experienced tent building master Jan van Bergen. Within the tents the visitors are surrounded by fantastic ornamentation: Berber-style carpeting and stylistic African themes merge to a special African experience together with the pictures shown on stage. This pleasurable feeling is also continued in the smaller surrounding tents. The bar area, the foyer, the event-tent, restrooms and the African art exhibition are connected to each other and the main tent with "souk"-like roofed walkways.
