Maftown Heights returns to Mahikeng for its ninth edition

Following the success of its 2017 homecoming festival, Maftown Heights returns to Mahikeng with the likes of Kwesta, Nasty C and Khuli Chana set to take centre stage.

Friday, 7 December 2018, will see the popular Maftown Heights music festival return to the Mmabatho stadium in Mahikeng, after a successful run in 2017. The music festival seeks to celebrate and promote hip-hop music, particularly Motswako hip-hop. This year marks the ninth edition of the festival, which was initially hosted in Johannesburg, but since 2017, has been hosted in Mahikeng, which is often cited as the birth place of Motswako hip-hop.

Following the success of the 2017 homecoming festival, co-founder of the Maftown Heights festival, Refiloe Ramogase, commented:

“The eighth annual Maftown Heights was an incredible night! Thank you to the over eighteen thousand people that came to Mmabatho Stadium and made the homecoming edition the best ever edition of Maftown Heights. A big thank you to every artist, group, and DJ that brought their A-game and a very big thank you to our partners Mahika Mahikeng. Next year we do it again!”

Organisers of the festival have revealed a star-studded line-up, with the likes of festival co-founder, Khuli Chana, Nasty C, Nadia Nakai, Kwesta, Sjava and Gemini Major set to take centre stage on the day. DJ Sumbody, Ms Cosmo, Vetkuk Vs Mahoota, Miss Pru, Dimplez and Major League are just some of the DJs that attendees will be treated to.

Tickets of the festival are available for purchase from Computicket, retailing from R50. Gates open at 14:00.
