I know sometimes you Jozi peeps feel like you get a little bit left out of the live music action with Cape Town getting most of the radness. Fret no more, as Jozifest hit’s the concrete jungle this weekend at Town Hall and in Newtown on the 16th of February 2013.
You’ll be able to catch performances from ISO, Goodnight Wembley, Naming James, The Black Cat Bones, Southern Gypsy Queen, Taxi Violence, Desmond & the Tutus and Shadowclub on the main stage. This, being the present (where people actually love dance music as much as we do) the likes of our boy Liver, Ross Jack, King Rat, Khumalo, Reepa,Twelv & Thesis,
and Julian Gomes will keep keeping everyone who digs their tunes faster than 100bpm, very happy inside on the dance stage.
Jozifest is part of the 2013 Campus Invasion tour (a crazy tour in the vicinity of seven national university campuses from 28 January to 16 February 2013 with an assorted mix of the best bands and DJs) and is brought to you by Student Village, Tuks FM, Hilltop Live (the legends behind Oppikoppi), Ticketbreak, MK and Axe Apollo, Smiroff Ice and Red Bull Mobile. It looks like it’s a pretty solid line-up for a single day festival and you’re probably not going to find a better time out in Jozi on Saturday. For more info check out Facebook.
