The music festival organisers have released a star –studded line up for this year’s show which include South African Artists such as Cassper Nyovest, DJ Nkazimulo , TNS Ngema, Kaygee Daking and Bizizi, as well as Johnny Mokhali.

He said they want it to be the biggest music festival in the country adding that they want to give revelers a big festive entertainment.

He stated that the music festival has a unique charity element; noting that in 2018 following a successful Born and Raised music festival they built a two roomed house in Mathako village in the Tswapong area. In addition Mojakgomo said as part of the donation they included a two months grocery, double and single bed together with bedding, 4 burner stove and a gas cylinder.

He further said most of the proceeds from the previous shows were channeled towards adopt a school initiative; in addition to donating graduation gowns to students, full computer desktop and heavy duty printers worth P75 000 to Motalaote Primary School in Serowe. He said their intention is to do more for the school in future. 

Tickets for the festival sell for P150.
