Miguel to perform at 2019 edition of AFROPUNK Joburg

Published on


American R&B artist Miguel was announced as one of AFROPUNK Joburg’s 2019 headlining acts, alongside other international artists such as Solange, GoldLink and Masego.

AFROPUNK Joburg held its artist line-up announcement event on Tuesday, 28 May 2019, in Braamfontein, Johannesburg. American R&B singer Miguel was announced as one of the headlining acts that will be performing at the two-day music festival which will be held on Monday, 30 December 2019 and Tuesday, 31 December 2019.

Miguel’s return will mark the second official visit from the artist, who was last in South Africa back in 2013 when he performed as part of his Kaleidoscope Dream tour for his sophomore album of the same name, released in 2012. During his visit in 2013, he described being in South Africa as a life changing experience.

Six years later, Miguel is set to come back to South Africa to share a stage with popular South African performers like Busiswa, Zoe Modiga, Umlilo, Darkie Fiction and Sho Madjozi. They, along with Miguel, will be taking the stage alongside other international acts like Solange, GoldLink, and English singer, Nao.

Since his last visit, Miguel has amassed more success and acclaim, growing his musical catalogue with each release. The artist has released two albums since 2013. Wildheart, released in 2015, was followed by War & Leisure two years later, in 2017. His most recent release is April 2019’s five-track EP titled Te Lo Dije, which features four songs from the album War & Leisure, delivered in Spanish by Miguel and the featured artists.
