Boiler Room x Ballantine’s True Music announce Johannesburg, as the final stop for True Music Africa, a four-city tour that unearths pioneering talent and their stories of hustling through the underground music scene to do it for themselves. A first for Boiler Room and Ballantine’s, the inaugural True Music Africa has toured South Africa, Cameroon and Kenya.
It’s given a platform to some of the freshest talents the continent has to offer, broadcasting their performances to an audience of more than 10 million around the world, and sharing the artists’ insights and experiences of the local music scene via a compelling documentary series.
The finale in Jozi will bring together an impressive line-up of local house and gqom artists for a very special night in a secret location. In the last year, gqom has been disrupting the underground electronic music scene across Europe, and house music in its many regional variants has long been a mainstay for South Africa’s music-minded youth.
The show on Thursday 21st June will broadcast some of the most exciting artists from South Africa’s influential scene, including:
- DJ Maphorisa
- Moonchild Sanelly
- Da Capo
- Uncle Partytime
