The DStv Delicious Festival is bringing hot international and local music acts.
The DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival is back with a bang and with the great food comes great music.
If you haven't caught the excitement bug just yet, perhaps this will do the trick. Watch now:
Now that we have your attention, it's only fair that we give you a bit more info about the menu of musical acts.
You can look forward to enjoying the sounds of great local and international acts like Louie Vega who started off his spinning career in his teens. He’s also part of the successful duo Masters at Work, which has released some of House music's most acclaimed albums like Nuyorican Soul and Masters at Work—Our Time is Coming.
Louie Vega has remixed and produced for the likes of Michael Jackson, Jamiroquai, Madonna, Luther Vandross and George Benson among others.
In 2006, he received a Grammy for his take on Curtis Mayfield’s Superfly.
Louie will take to the stage alongside successful dance music duo Driza Bone who are known for remixing Shanice's I Love Your Smile. Their version of the song became more successful than the original. To get in the mood, start practicing your dance moves with #NowPlaying on Wednesday, 20 May at 22:00 on MTV Base so you can be a professional by the time Delicious rolls in.
