A TRIO of Grammy winners – American multi-platinum soul singer Maxwell, Nigerian singer-songwriter Tems and South African Afro-house hitmaker Zakes Bantwini – will headline this year’s DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival.
The festival’s 10th anniversary edition on 23 and 24 September 2023 at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit is set to be a celebratory affair, with the good vibes flowing all Heritage Day weekend courtesy of a scorching line-up that includes iconic US funk-soul-disco outfit Shalamar and multi-award-winning local gospel choir Joyous Celebration.
On Saturday 23 September, the main stage will kick off with sensational local DJs Oscar Mbo, Morda Bongs and DJ Kent, as well as Afro-soul legend Ringo Madlingozi.
Then it’s time for the ladies, with sublime DJ Lamiez Holworthy bringing some old-school sass to the stage.
Saturday afternoon will also be lit up by two-time Grammy-winning outfit ArrestedDevelopment, whose trailblazing positive-minded hip-hop incorporates African influences, making for an “arresting” blend of rhythms, flavours and sounds.
Audiences are also in for a treat as fellow Grammy-winning American jazz pianist, producer and songwriter Robert Glasper sets the scene for mellow sundowners with his hip-hop-inflected compositions.
Sunday’s main stage line-up sees the incomparable Joyous Celebration – South Africa’s legendary gospel choir that is heading towards its 30th year of unifying South Africans and giving praise through music.
