This online music festival will feature some of the most exciting established and up-and-coming local acts in South Africa and the African continent at large.

The event will run for eight hours and feature non-stop music and entertainment, with proceeds going towards the #AfricaMasks4All campaign.
As a non-profit company, AfricaMasks4All is raising funds to help make and distribute cloth masks to people who cannot afford one.
With a very ambitious target of one million cloth masks, the NPC is looking at innovative ways to raise money.
As a result, several fundraisers are in the pipeline, with the first big drive being the #Music4Masks event.
Says AfricaMasks4All Director Grant De Sousa, “Since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak in South Africa and the lockdown, there have been a number of very cool streams, but few of this duration and diversity.
“The artists are really going all out to make this a memorable event.
“While our main ambition is to raise funds for AfricaMasks4All, as an NPC, we want to be able to also give people a nice distraction while supporting a good cause.”
The line-up is pretty diverse which makes a nice change from ‘DJ in bedroom.’

About the lineup De Sousa had this to say,
“We’re very excited by our roster and the calibre of artists that have come forward to give their time and talents so generously.
“We have immense gratitude to all the artists that jumped on board to make this happen, our fantastic host Paul Snodgrass as well as our venue sponsor.”
