Bassline Fest


Bassline Fest is an exhilarating Music experience, occurring annually, set in a truly urban setting at the iconic Constitution Hill in Joburg on Saturday 25th May (Africa Day), the Fest showcases the best of Contemporary African music to be seen all in one day. Under a 25-year celebratory theme, the Bassline Fest will not only celebrate Africa day, but also a milestone 25 years of democracy in South Africa, as well as the celebration of Bassline’s 25th anniversary! 12 of the continent’s biggest & freshest talent will perform across two stages with an all day Festival starting from 2pm till late. This is a family day to celebrate our African finesse. Headlining the Fest this year are two of Nigeria’s biggest stars Asa [Asha) and Mr Eazi, aswell as our very own Buhlebendalo (from The Soil).

Synchronicity is a theme with some of the artists having collaborated with one another; Kenya’s groove master Blinky Bill having collaborated with two of the artists, Nigeria’s Mr Eazi and Kenya’s Maia & The Big Sky.

There will be ample good food to eat & drink at the contemporary African Market, which will also host talented artists, designers, chefs & crafters. Brought to you by Soweto Locrate market.
