Here to reimagine the blue print of Jazz festivals in South Africa – International Arts Solutions together with GOG Lifestyle Parks presents the annual Soweto International Jazz Festival scheduled for June 14 – 16 2019.
Recognized for aiming to bridge the gap in African derived music and culture, the festival overtly promotes a cultural exchange between South African and International musicians. The carefully curated line-up will consist of multiple genres and artists from South Africa, Caribbean and the USA. They will be on display on three (3) stages at Joburg’s new destination for large-scale family events, the GOG Gardens Soweto.
Established in 2018, the festival is keen on celebrating a wide spectrum of South Africa’s favourite musical genres and cultures. It artfully combines the art of creating music with extraordinary performances, audience exchanges and a first-class lifestyle experience into an International music festival that will appeal to a variety of ages globally. Each day of the three-day festival will don a distinct theme:
June 14th – Young Kings/Queens Day; dedicated to the youth and will feature a healthy dose of Hip Hop, R&B and House Music.
June 15th – International Day; will feature global acts with a multi genre approach.
June 16th – Inspirational Day; will feature Gospel and Jazz music.
