The music fest is back on Heritage weekend.
The DStv iRock Limpopo Music Festival is back! And this year the event will move to Polokwane Cricket Club, a venue that’s bigger and equipped with world class facilities to accommodate over 18 000 iRock fans over Heritage weekend.
Festival headliners like Cassper Nyovest, Okmalumkoolkat, Kwesta, Amanda Black, Black Motion, DJ Mshega and Culoe de Song, among others will entertain the crowd with their popular hits on Saturday, 23 September 2017.
The festival will bring music lovers the best in South African Dance, House, Hip Hop, Afro POP and RnB. And that’s not all. Once again, aspiring musicians are invited to be part of the line-up by entering the DStv iRock Battle for the Stage talent search. Keep an eye on the DStv iRock social media platforms for further updates.
“In 2013, DStv iRock launched a completely new experience. We created more than just a music festival, we created a lifestyle. The youth were captivated and looked for ways to be part of the experience in a bigger way. We then developed and implemented the iRock Ambassador Program which employs over 100 youth in the area,” says Nomsa Chabeli Mazibuko, General Manager Marketing for MultiChoice.
“Each year the festival gets bigger and more exciting and we have seen enormous growth in terms of festival attendance, awareness and excitement around the DStv iRock brand. But more than that, the DStv iRock music festivals continue to give us the opportunity to empower the youth and uplift the communities which we operate in,” continues Mazibuko.
The 2017 edition of DStv iRock Limpopo will keep you entertained all weekend, bringing you Comedy, Jazz, and the iRock Social Sunday to end off your Heritage weekend.
This year’s iRock Limpopo Music Festival is presented by DStv in association with Standard Bank, Hunters, Polokwane Local Municipality, Mall of the North, Limpopo Tourism Agency and Daily Sun.
