The event will also fea­ture lo­cal crowd-pullers such as Team Sko­rokoro, DJ Shizo, DJ Tsitso, Vicmo and Com­fort, and Dr Jr.

The or­gan­is­ers yes­ter­day launched the ben­e­fit con­cert and used the plat­form to cel­e­brate their 11th an­niver­sary and an­nounce the in­tro­duc­tion of op­por­tu­ni­ties for lo­cal busi­nesses to pro­vide their ser­vices.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Thabiso Mosima said the event was not all about soul and jazz, but also char­ity and pro­mot­ing lo­cal busi­nesses.

He added that the line-up would con­sist of at least 50% Gaut­eng artists to pro­mote home-grown ta­lent.

“For the past 11 years we have been work­ing with char­i­ties. We have now adopted three homes, and after the con­cert a cer­tain per­cent­age of the pro­ceeds will go to them. Busi­ness are also in­vited to sell food, ice, ac­ces­sories, wa­ter, bev­er­ages and cloth­ing items.”

A se­ries of ad­ven­ture sports such as paint­ball and kart-bik­ing will also take place at the event, also creat­ing busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties.

The gates open at 10am.
