Red Bull Kasi Crawl 6 November

Join Red Bull on Saturday, 6 November, in Soweto’s famous Vilakazi Street, home to not one, but two Nobel Prize winners, Nelson Mandela  X Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, and experience a brand new history in the making!

Feel the rhythm of eKasi as Red Bull pays tribute to those, young and old, who have been instrumental in Mzansi’s miraculous story. Celebrate the then and the now, as we look to the past as the inspiration for our future.

In true, pan-African style, Kasi Crawl brings you 4 stages, each hosted by a local icon from the worlds of House, Hip Hop, Dancehall and Kwaito:

• The Party People stage presented by the ever-popular Hip Hop scholar and innovator, DJ Kenzhero
• The Music Light Love stage with ex- Red Bull Music Academy participant and world record holding DJ (he played for 60 hours with one arm), the one, the only, Black Coffee. Having personally selected his favourite South African House line-up, this promises to be a day of House you don’t want to miss.
• The African Storm stage with curators, Admiral and Jah Seed. Purveyors of the reggae dancehall scene in South Africa since 1997 with their sounds of Buju, Sizzla, Marley, Tosh and other reggae legends, who else but this formidable pair could be called upon to ‘run tings’ on the reggae stage?
• And finally, the Keep Soweto Alive stage where you’ll find House, Kwaito and the sounds of the ‘kasi’ alive and kicking!

You’ll also find a feast of fashion, with one-off stalls from Thesis Social Jam, Africa Mutu Arts and Dankie San; a beer garden, shish’nyama and much, much more,

Tickets available at the entrance; or from Sakhumzi (Vilakazi Street) - R20

Don’t miss it!
