Several well-known local artists will perform during the Mapungubwe Youth Festival that will be stage at the Polokwane Cricket Club tomorrow.

According to the MEC for Sports, Arts and Culture, Ms Thandi Moraka, all local music lovers must stream to the venue. According to her, Limpopo is the heartbeat of the nation when it comes to minerals and music.

“This is the perfect place to set yourself free, let loose to the biggest and best sounds from African acts across the board. This year’s event has found its feet and cemented itself as one of the province’s biggest shows.”

She added that in 2017 many people gathered in Limpopo “to absorb the excitement and tap their party feet. The bar keeps being raised and this year it will not be any different. All roads lead to Limpopo, and what better way to discover our beautiful country than making a pit stop at one of our richest places in minerals and drenched in tradition?” said Moraka.

Moraka said they had improved on last year’s festival and that it would be all systems go this year.  “Each year comes with its challenges, but we have improved largely in terms of parking, security and all other measures that will make revellers feel at home,” she said.

The artists scheduled to perform are DJ Malwela, King Mondada, Master KG, DJ Ganyani, DJ Bambo, DJ Ladytone, DJ King Bash, Rabs Vhafuwi and many more. Tickets are now available at Computicket and cost R100 each.
