Festival goers can look forward to: Highly sought-after neo-soul and Afro-soul singer, Zonke; Zakes Bantwini – affectionately known as the King of Dance due to his electrifying presence on stage; Ami Faku, whose music exceptionally combines classical Afro-soul with modern pop music; Sun-El Musician, who has earned both mainstream success and global recognition with his pleasant, upbeat combination of deep house, Afro-soul and pop;

Simmy, whose distinctive style includes electronic dance music as well as neo-soul, neo-folk, and experimental pop; Female DJ, Uncle Waffles, who is making waves with her DJ skills and has even captured the attention of Drake;  Nomfundo Moh, who has been named as one of Apple Music’s Africa Rising emerging artists.

We chose this line-up because these performers represent the best of what South African music has to offer; a mix of today’s biggest names and tomorrow’s superstars, while simultaneously being diverse enough musically to cater for everyone in our audience”, says Chakela.
