Originally founded, like the KKNK and Aardklop, to promote and create a space for Afrikaans cultural work, it was later renamed the Vryfees ("Free Festival"), as the mandate expanded, and in 2018 the name was changed once more to become the Vrystaat Kunstefees (the Vrystaat Arts Festival in English and Tsa-Botjhaba in Southern Sotho), with the objective now being to also forge creative connections with English and Sotho cultures.
