The sixth edition of the annual DRUMBeat music festival returns once again to Soweto, and it promises fire, passion and of course, loads of beating drums as if possessed by demons!
This years’ line-up is a medley of young and old- and believe me when I say- its gonna be epic.
It features the legendary himself and Soweto born Bra Sipho “Hot-Stix” Mabuse, Karabo, Gospel master Solly Mahlangu, the sensational Nathi, internationally acclaimed Mi Casa, chart-buster Kwesta, Mobi Dixon and Nasty_C.
Two stages will be erected to lighten up the summer fever invasion from live jazz, hip hop, house and pop. Please don’t ask about Maskandi/Isicqathamiya just because the venue is next to a hostel, please.
According to the organizers, over 5000 fans will be drawn from Soweto, Jozi and other neighbouring areas. Of course, when you mentioned the word Soweto, every Dick, Tom and Harry, including international tourists would like a piece of it.
So, expect more than what is bargained for, in terms of numbers as the tills will be katching throughout the night…
Kasie tourism at its best!
It happens at Soweto Theatre, (Jabulani) on August 27.
