Multi-award-winning rapper, Kwesta, took to social media on Thursday, 17 January 2019, to announce that the Easter edition of the Umshubhelo Music Festival will be an all-white affair.
Kwesta gave fans an update about the dress code for the upcoming Umshubhelo Music Festival through a Facebook post on Thursday, 17 January 2019.
The event will take place at the Huntersfield Stadium on Saturday, 20 April 2019. “Good Friday weekend will never be same again,” the rapper said in the post. “It’s an all-white party at Huntersfield Stadium.” On Monday, 14 January 2019, the rapper – whose real name is Senzo Vilakazi – sent out a reminder to his fans about the festival.
The event is organised by RapLyf Records, which is co-owned by Kwesta and fellow hip-hop artist, Kid X. This is the fourth time the festival has been hosted by the company. RapLyf Records said that fans can expect “performances from Mzansi’s top urban acts alongside the RapLyf Records Family.”
Kwesta urged his fans to get their tickets as soon as possible as only a limited amount will be available. Tickets are being sold in five different phases. The first phase of tickets is the cheapest, retailing at R80 and R200 for general and VIP tickets, respectively.
In the second phase, which will begin in February, general access tickets will cost R100 and VIP will cost R250. From then on, prices for both types of tickets will increase by R50 with each phase. The tickets are available for purchase at Computicket. The cost of bringing cooler boxes to the event is yet to be announced.
