Toyota presents DRUMBeat in association with Mzansi Magic and Hilltop Live, Saturday 27 August.
DRUMBeat Music Festival returns to Soweto next month with a major lineup. Once again festival goers will be spoilt to a spectacular showcase, as some of Africa’s legendary musical talents gather for one night only.
Two stages will bring live jazz, hip hop, house and pop at the Soweto Theatre on 27 August, where 5000 music lovers will watch the sun set while enjoying the star-studded performances by some of the most renowned artists in South Africa.
The lineup includes the following hot acts: Karabo, Sipho Hotstix Mabuse, Solly Mahlangu, Mi Casa, Nathi, Emtee, Kwesta, Mobi Dixon and Nasty C.
Idols 2015 winner, Karabo, will get the evenings proceedings underway as the sun sets over Soweto. The 24 year old singer, who amassed over 16 million votes for his performances on Idols, will perform his unique blend of music that includes House, Afro-pop, gospel and R&B.
Gospel legend, Pastor Solly Mahlangu will bring his praise to the stages of Soweto as he performs songs from his four critically acclaimed and award winning albums. Pastor Solly Mahlangu began performing later in life, and in his first year had collected the Best Album award at the 2009 SABC Gospel Crown Awards. His live album and DVD, Obrigado, sold about 15000 copies, while the CD has achieved gold status for selling more than 20000 units. Pastor Solly Mahlangu has also taken home two additional SABC Gospel Crown Awards and received nominations in the Best Traditional Faith Music Album category and Best Live DVD.
Following the successful format from the previous concerts, DRUMBeat will have no seating and no reserved standing. However, a VIP hospitality area, curated by Rashid Lombard Inc., has been introduced for this year and details of the available packages will be announced on 1st July.
