Dur­ban’s siz­zling two-day mu­sic fest


The Citizen (Gauteng) - - CITY -

An of­fer­ing of good mu­sic, food, fash­ion and much more.

What could be bet­ter than spend­ing the long week­end of­fi­cially mark­ing the start of sum­mer, than bask­ing in the Dur­ban sun­shine and in­hal­ing the sea breeze?

A re­laxed af­ter­noon marked by great food, good vibes and some of the best mu­sic South Africa has to of­fer, and that’s ex­actly what you can get next Satur­day and Sun­day at the Capitec Live Bet­ter Fes­ti­val at Kings Park Sta­dium’s outer fields in Dur­ban.

The Sun­day line-up has been beefed up with the ad­di­tion of the pride of Um­lazi and multi award-win­ner Khaya Mthethwa, soul sen­sa­tion Mlindo, and the Neo soul sound of Afro­trac­tion.

The artists will be join­ing the al­ready im­pres­sive bill fea­tur­ing the emo­tive Zonke, the new first lady of house Lady Za­mar, the tal­ented Za­ma­jobe, and the man who has South Africa chant­ing Asphele­langa, Vusi Nova.

While day two is all about chill­ing to the re­lax­ing vibes of jazz, Afro-soul and RnB, Satur­day will be an all-day vibe packed with hiphop, gqom and house tunes that will have fes­ti­val­go­ers on their feet from the af­ter­noon to early morn­ing.

Rev­ellers are ex­pected to be treated to hours of great hits when Nasty C, Kwesta, AKA and Zakwe serve them the best of Mzansi’s hip-hop, and it’s also ex­pected to be ex­plo­sive fun when house and qqom chiefs DJ Tira, Distruc­tion Boyz and Ok­malumkoolkat take over the stage.

Lo­cal favourites DJs Junior, De Rocka, King Sfiso and Mario will keep it on lock as they rep­re­sent their prov­ince with pride. Ga­gasi FM’s voices will be the em­cees over the two days, with Heazy, Farieda and Le Soul on Satur­day, and a spe­cial ap­pear­ance by Vic­tor Malaza, Collen Zondo, Jesse Sun­tele and Nom­fundo Xaba on Sun­day. Capitec’s head of mar­ket­ing and cor­po­rate af­fairs, Sbu­siso Ku­malo, says: “We are so ex­cited to see the ex­pan­sion to the line-up with fresh, young, up-and-com­ing as well as es­tab­lished artists. “The ad­di­tion of all the tal­ent al­lows an even bet­ter of­fer­ing to the Live Bet­ter Fes­ti­val, where we can present an ex­cit­ing of­fer­ing of mu­sic, food, fash­ion and much more over two highly an­tic­i­pated days. This fam­ily out­ing is a sure win for fes­ti­val­go­ers in the KwaZulu-Natal re­gion.” Tick­ets for the fes­ti­val are avail­able through Tick­et­pro and at all Ed­con out­lets at 15% dis­count when us­ing a Capitec Bank card to buy. – Cit­i­zen re­porter
