2013 Macufe breaks the bank to get top stars!

  Synonymously, associated with controversy and ‘hear-says’ this year’s Macufe installment promises to be exciting and peppered with par excellence performances. And of course straight forward answers, tu!

For the uninitiated Macufe stands for Mangaung African Cultural Festival, which begins in townships through workshops as a build-up and climax with the main music fests and wraps up with a football match on the last day (Sunday).

This helps in involving communities in and around the Free State Province to benefit economically from the fest. The main acts begin from Octobert 6 with Gospel Concert to 13 at various venues.

S’fiso Ncwane’s hit ‘Kulingile Baba’ headlines the Gospel edition and will be joined in tow by Rebecca Malope, Solly Mahlangu, Sipho Makhabane, Sechaba, Khanyiswa, Umsingizane, Tshepo Komane, Teboho and Friends, Dumako Nkosi and Sello Malete.

From fully booked accommodation establishments to the clinging tills, this year’s local entrepreneurs will be running not walking to nearest banks with smiles aghast all over their faces!

(No manga-manga) Free State welcomes sought after international stars in the form of male-bender Keri Hilson and crooner Anthony Hamilton. You heard it way before but we’re re-confirming it!    

They share the stage with our own The Muffins, Locnville, AKA, bra Hugh Masekela, Judith Sephuma, Thandiswa Mazwai and local act Maleh, Jimmy Dludlu, Mafikizolo, Zonke, Sipho Mabuse, Khaya Kgatlape, Peter Nthwane, Thoko, Allayen, Dj Finzo & Dj What What and Lira, amongst others!

From comedy to rock and jazz, Macufe promises a splendor time for ardent travelers. Our Nigerian counterparts have been included in the comedy session.  

Tickets are now available from Computicket Outlets from R150 to R300 for different tastes of musical genres you may appeal to.

Indeed, Macufe has broken the bank to get top stars!

It’s proudly supported by the Free State’s Sport, Arts, Culture and Recreation department, National Department of Arts and Culture, Mangaung Municipality, National Arts Council, Free State Tourism and Lesedi FM.

So, who said Free State is a dull province after-all?
