Jozifest is proud to announce the venue change for the 2012 festival. Jozifest 2012 is a new and up and coming 2 day festival for the greater Johannesburg region. Originally planned to take place at the Riverbend Centre in Bloubosrand ( just on the boarder of Fourways) at the Cool Runnings Fourways complex will be changing venues as of today.
This decision did not come lightly to the organiser but after serious consideration as to whether the original venue was indeed the right and perfect place to host the festival , we have come to the conclusion that should we want to host the best possible event for both the acts/Musicians/Artists/
Jozifest will as of this press release being released, be hosted in Newtown. The venues involved in this movement of the festival will be but are not limited to : The Woods, Townhall, Carfax and the neighbouring streets.
We feel that this is the right decision for the festival and festival goers as it will increases our capacity as well as our open/live hours. As stated earlier this decision did not come lightly but in order for us to deliver upon the best possible festival. We have decided to move forward and change to this new series of venues and confirm 100% that Jozifest 2012 will be held in Newtown.
We ask all public and Musicians/Artists/Vendors etc to support us on this decision and move forward with into what will surely be one of the highlights for entertainment in Johannesburg for quite sometime.
