Over 850 people attended the event from all corners of Durban to celebrate art, photography, music, videography and fashion. One of the cities seminal hip hop outfits BIG IDEA reunited after four years for a one night only performance to headline the event. The result was mind-blowing, and the Bat Centers amphitheater was packed to capacity with bobbing heads and raised fists. The atmosphere was electric. You could tell by the looks on the band members faces that this wasn’t just another show.
It was a homecoming. And the crowed didn’t miss a beat, embracing both the celebration of their home town and the return of the group of unsung heroes to the stage. One of the events organizers Jonas Barausse described what they were trying to achieve with INTERPRET DURBAN like this “We tried and I think succeeded in creating an event that showcased Durban to Durban. We have an abundance of creative talent in this city. Its young, its fresh and has its own unique perspective and style.
You can see it in the winning entries this year, from the winners of the Muso Mix comp to the winning entry of the design category its all proudly and uniquely 031 in flavor and approach”. Durban’s freshest and arguably most invigorating musical act, Fruits and Veggies, put on an outstanding performance on the night, and along with their collaborator The B.H Project were the clear winners of the Muso Mix Comp against some outstanding competition. They walked away with over R100 000 worth of prizes including a music video and photo shoot with Durban based iKind Media as well as an all expenses paid trip to the Red Bull Studios in Cape Town to record their collaboration with B.H Project compliments of Red Bull South Africa.
