The much-anticipated SA Music Carnival is back and it’s bigger than ever. In celebration of South African music and keeping it local, fans can expect a killer line-up with a variety of genres from hip-hop to amapiano.
Taking place on Friday the 13th at Taboo nightclub in Sandton, the theme of the carnival this year is a ‘Nightmare on Gwen Lane’.
“As the SA Music Carnival brand this will be its the seventh year running in Sandton. Everybody comes dressed with the feathers, the glitter and the masks. Because it’s Friday the 13th I will be coming as Freddy Krueger and that’s why this year’s theme is a Nightmare on Gwen Lane. So watch out Freddy is coming for you,” joked DJ Vetkuk.
Excited and ready the duo has been promoting it since the beginning of the year.
“We’re so excited, We prepare for this event as if it’s the first time we do it, preparations started already on 1 January. We put more effort into the production, sound and artists. This year the different element is that it falls on Friday the 13th. It’s about fusing different genres under one roof so that’s how the name SA Music Carnival came about,” said Vetkuk.
Mahoota added that at the moment they do feel a bit drained as well.
