It enters its third edition and has grown by statue, befitting this musical icon.
Assupol, key sponsor, has partnered with music icon and legend Hugh Masekela since 2012 to bring a musical festival to Soweto that expresses cultural diversity and heritage.
“Assupol shares the same passion I have for promoting the excellence of our universal African heritage”, says Hugh Masekela.
‘Bra Hugh’, as he is lovingly referred to in the music circles, is deeply respected in the music industry and has a wide audience that cuts through different ages and backgrounds. Just as Assupol, he is very passionate about the people of South African and our heritage.
“Assupol is proud to once again partner with our brand ambassador Hugh Masekela, to bring this amazing project to life for all music lovers in Gauteng. It is our way of giving back to the community, as all proceeds from this festival will go to the benefit of the Hugh Masekela Heritage Trust”, quipped Bridget Mokwena-Halala, Assupol Life CEO.
South Africa’s most exciting young talent – including Beatenberg, Jeremy Loops, Laurie Levine and Josie Field – will be showcasing their hit songs while performing alongside local music legends Hugh Masekela, Tsepo Tshola, and The Soul Brothers.
The Hugh Masekela Heritage Festival – due to be a musical celebration of our wonderful diversity and heritage – is an opportunity for friends and family of all ages to enjoy live music in the heart of Soweto.
Entertainment will be available for the whole family, including a supervised children’s play area, refreshments and food stalls from retail vendors as well as local Soweto vendors.
No glasses, cans, braai’s or steel cutlery will be allowed.
Festival-goers are welcome to take their own food and drinks, camping chairs and umbrellas for a fun day of music.
The first 100 people through the gate will receive a special gift from Assupol and lots of other exciting give-aways will be done throughout the day.
