Being one of the largest townships in South Africa, Soweto has a vibrant mix of cultures – something that this festival wants to embrace.
There’ll be a film screening, a flea market, photography exhibition and jazz and hip-hop performances with artists like Emtee performing. Other artists performing include Khonaye, Bonfaya and plenty more.
The art fest is happening in Chaf Pozi, Soweto. The festival is taking place on May 29. Copperlake Breweries are going to be brewing beer too!
