Bassline Fest

26 May - 27 May

R400 – R700

The Bassline Fest (formerly known as the Bassline Africa Day Concert) is a highlight of South Africa’s music festival calendar. This year the festival takes place in the heart of Joburg at Constitution Hill with a packed line-up of exciting local and international acts.

Representing South Africa are jazz music legend Sipho ‘Hotstix’ Mabusa, iconic male choir Ladysmith Black Mambazo and SAMA-award-winning musician Nakhane Toure, whose last performance at Constitution Hill was one of the most memorable of the inaugural Afropunk festival held here in December 2017.

For many festival goers the biggest attraction of Bassline Fest is the chance to experience some of Africa’s most exciting musicians performing a range of different musical genres that reflect the rich diversity of the African continent. This year’s line-up of acts from outside South Africa’s borders is bigger than ever with France, Brazil, Reunion Island, Mozambique, Cape Verde and Guinea all represented.

In particular look out for Nigerian pop star Yemi Alade, Mali Afro-pop veteran Salif Keita, Japanese dub-reggae-rock band Oki Dub Ainu Band, whose music meshes traditional Japanese instruments and styles such as the tonkori with the rhythms of dubstep, Mozambican marrabenta band Ghorwane and Cape Verde’s Elida Almeida whose music captures the indomitable spirit of the West African Islands and is reminiscent of Cape Verde’s most renowned export Cesária Évora.
