20 Aug AFROPUNK adds Burna Boy and SJAVA to 2019 Joburg Artist Line Up
AFROPUNK JOBURG has revealed it’s 2nd phase artist line-up, which includes Burna Boy and SJAVA who will be adding to the festival’s exciting list of world-class acts. For the third South African instalment, the festival announced Solange, Miguel, and Goldlink as headlining acts, supported by the likes of Masego, Sho Madjozi, Nao and many more artists.
Along with Burna Boy and SJAVA, new additions to the line-up include Urban Village, Kwani Experience, and Blinky Bill who are expected to keep South African fans entertained at the festival. To conclude this year’s artists roster, AFROPUNK has the likes of JazziDisciples, Brazillian DJ collective Batekoo, DJ Kenzhero, and Zara Julius who will be joining Gina Jeanz, FIF_LAAA and Lelowhatsgood behind the DJ booth.
Each year AFROPUNK provides opportunity through their Battle Of The Bands platform for unsigned acts to share the stage with established artists at the festival and this year we’re excited to see yet another upcoming act showcase their talent.
For the 2019 AFROPUNK Joburg edition, festival organisers have announced that a custom made protective dome will be built in order to shield the fans from unexpected rains that have been experienced in the past two years. This will ensure music lovers get a full experience of the festival without worrying about rain or the harsh African summer heat.
As it has become custom, AFROPUNK has created an annual theme for 2019, the theme is WE SEE YOU, a message that brings together AFROPUNK ideology and the people who support it, under the banner of acknowledgment and in resistance to those who strive to oppress.
