BASSLINE FEST is the hottest annual Afro-Music Festival in Jozi.
It is a day to have fun, listen to incredible live music, eat scrumptious food from the Food trucks & Stalls while shopping at the artisanal arts & craft market .
Enjoy headliner Sjava, DBN GOGO, Simmy, Afro-futuristic act Afrotronix from Chad/Canada, Techno-Punk act Scurru Fitchada from Cape Verde/Portugal, dance hall act Fayazer from Reunion Island and the Planetoids from Germany featuring SA/ Zambian Namakau Star. The fest is set to be a day of music and celebration of our humanity, resilience and over-all incredible creativity and talent that our beautiful African Continent births. The lineup of artists reflect the inclusivity, diversity and tolerance that the city of Jozi inhabits.
Says co organiser Paige Holmes of Bassline Live, ” Come and enjoy Simmy’s House-infused love songs, inspired by the maskandi & country songs her father played while she was growing up. Simmy joins her fellow Metro FM Awards 2023 nominee Sjava on the lineup.”
Increasing the International profile of the Fest will be the performance of the German band Planetoids, a four-piece indie/synth pop band from Hannover, featuring South African/Zambian RnB, Hip-hop artist Namakau Star.
Bassline Fest’s Brad Homes says on the 20th of May “Expect a variety of music and fun festival experience for all: From Amapiano to Indie Rock, Techno Punk, House, Afro Pop and Maskandi driven R&B. Its going to be, where you and your family, want to be! A selection of top stalls for food, fashion, arts & crafts will be there in addition to bars to keep you refreshed.”
The Fest will start at 3pm and end at 11pm on the 20th of May 2023.
The Bassline Fest is grateful its presenting partner the Department of Sport Arts & Culture for coming on-board in the support of the live music industry and in celebration of Africa Month, and its associate partner Castle Lite. Also supporting the Bassline Fest will be Music In Africa and the ACCESS conference, Jagermeister and the Goethe Institute who have made the performance of the Planatoids featuring Namakau Star possible. What this support does is aid the live music industry as a whole as it creates work for the full live music industry eco-system from production, marketing, performing service providers and artists. It also creates a place for festival goers to escape while getting entranced by the artistic talent and to get entertained and have some fun!
Gates open at 2pm till late.
