The biggest and most fabulous DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival is back for the fourth year, hosted over two days 8-9 October 2016, with the main headline act for Sunday, 9 October being none other than The Jacksons.
This is a once in a lifetime chance to enjoy your biggest all-time Jackson favourite hits like ‘Can you feel it’ and ‘ABC’ in a live outdoor setting with gourmet food and VIP hospitality options.
On Saturday, fans can enjoy Grammy Award winning Producer/Artist/DJ, “Little” Louie Vega of Elements of Life fame. Elements of Life is a combination of Jazz, Latin, R&B, Gospel, Soul, Blues, Brazilian and World Music all woven with Vega’s golden touch as part of his critically acclaimed live orchestral project which was released in 2013.
Big billings on Saturday’s main stage line-up also goes to Arrested Development, Rolling Stone Magazine’s band of the year in 1992, who went on to collect two Grammy Awards in 1993 for Best New Artist & Best Rap Single (Album Tennessee).
South Africa’s triple platinum selling trio, Mi Casa, will be one of the headlining acts on the main stage. Their unique and relatable sound has ensured they keep the number one spot on South African radio charts; their latest single “Don’t Wanna Be Your Friend” being the number 1 most Shazam’ed song in South Africa for 6 consecutive weeks.
De La Soul rounds out Saturday’s performance. The original hip hop trio from New York City, who besides their musical style delivered us the iconic rapper style of baggy pants and hiker boots, also went platinum in the US and UK on their debut album ‘3 Feet High and Rising’ in 1989.
Sunday sees SA music star Lira – the multi-platinum selling and 11-times SAMA-winning afro-soul vocalist who refers to her music as “a fusion of soul, funk, and elements of jazz and African soul” – and Roy Ayers. Ayers, known as the “The Godfather of Neo Soul”, is a pioneer of jazz-funk and is a key figure in acid jazz which is a mixture of jazz into hip-hop and funk.
For a local flavour, our home-grown jazz and afro-pop vocalist Judith Sephuma will help to get you in the mood for the big act of the weekend. DStv Delicious takes place this year for the first time at the 73ha 55-year old Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit that has recently undergone a massive multimillion-Rand upgrade.
