It’s almost party time

It’s only a week until the DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival returns. After a two-year hiatus, the flavours and sounds of the globe will meet at Johannesburg’s Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit on September 24th and 25th. The countdown has started, so get ready for a fusion of culinary and musical excellence.

Alongside Afropop megastar Burna Boy, is R&B hitmaker Babyface, Grammy-nominated icon Angie Stone, and Afrobeat star Nissi. Joining them are hip-hop trio Digable Planets, as well as English hip-hop and electronic dance group Stereo MCs. Mzansi’s musical heritage will be on proud display, with spoken-word poet Lebo Mashile, composing a piece for the festival. Plus, local singers Simphiwe Dana, Zenzi Makeba Lee and Msaki will perform a Miriam Makeba tribute.
