To celebrate its 150th birthday, Heineken has selected to share the festivities with everyone who is passionate about music, art, and culture. This forms part of the brand’s mission to spark connections and break down barriers which aligns with Hey Neighbour’s ethos of turning strangers into Neighbours. This dynamic partnership is all about synergy. To amplify the festive season’s good times, Heineken® is taking the festival to Africa with a continentwide campaign that will make Hey Neighbour a household name across ten African markets. These locations include Mozambique, Ivory Coast, Ethiopia, and Nigeria to name a few.
With Heineken as a trusted partner, Hey Neighbour will be a festival that the African continent can experience, own, and be proud of. The intent is to be at the same magnitude as the likes of iconic international festivals like Coachella. “We’re absolutely thrilled to have Heineken® on board as our presenting partner,” says Warren Le Grange, Hey Neighbour Festival Director. “This partnership is all about celebrating good times and unity, which aligns perfectly with the spirit of Hey Neighbour.”
Joining the already toasty Neighbourhood, international hitmaker and jam-provider REMA joins the line-up alongside legendary South African acts Mafikizolo, Prime Circle, Zakes Bantwini, Black Motion as well as Desmond and the Tutus.
Local favourites Mörda, Kelvin Momo and DJ Zinhle have the decks on lock alongside curated live performances from Sho Madjozi, Elaine and Jamie-Lee Sexton. For the hip-hop heads, BLXCKIE, Youngsta CPT and A-REECE will hold it down alongside newcomer Real Dan Duminy and Uncle Partytime on the one’s and two’s.
