Cel­e­brat­ing street cul­ture

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

THE FIRST AN­NUAL Street Cul­ture Fes­ti­val will bring all things ur­ban to one place.

The head­line acts will be A$AP Ferg and Nasty C.

“The street cul­ture scene in South Africa has never been this big, yet the in­dus­try lacks a safe and fam­ily friendly event that brings all these street cul­ture el­e­ments to­gether in one place,” said Sportscene spokesman, Jonathan Muir.

Of­fi­cially called the Cap­sule Fest, the aim is to of­fer a plat­form that cel­e­brates street cul­ture in all its forms – from ur­ban cul­ture brands, artists, de­sign­ers and in­flu­encers, to the con­sumer.

The fes­ti­val will in­clude ac­tiv­i­ties like a char­ity celebrity bas­ket­ball tour­na­ment, skate park, brand pop-up stores, art in­stal­la­tions, cus­tomis­ing booths, a beer gar­den and a food vil­lage, a gam­ing area and a VIP deck. The con­cert will feature more than 30 lo­cal acts – DJs and artists – and two mu­sic stages.

The main stage will be for es­tab­lished artists, while the smaller stage will be for up-and­com­ing acts. Tick­ets start at R150 and can be bought at cer­tain Sportscene stores. – Staff Re­porter
