Cape Town - The Kaggen Music and Film Trust is planning a series of diverse, multi-faceted events in Cape Town in 2016.  

Woodstock Live is about establishing an environment of creative expression and engagement through spontaneous and meaningful cultural conversations and innovative ideas to promote artistic integrity and fearlessness.

Various socially-focused music events consisting of a series of multi genre park festivals, a tea party for the elderly and a music festival for children will be staged at Trafalgar Park, District 6, Woodstock, throughout the year.  

The Woodstock Live brand is inviting Cape Town communities and neighbourhoods to connect with each other through these events.

The Launch Event:

The first Woodstock Live music concert will be held on Sunday 20 March.
Trafalgar Park (Corner of Searle Street and Victoria Road.)   
Gates open at 13:00
Concert from 14:00 to 00:00.

The line-up includes the following popular South African artists, who all in their own way, have fascinating stories to tell in terms of their musical journeys:

Goodluck
Das Kapital
Tresor
Mix n Blend
Los Tacos
DJ InviZAble feat. Computer General
Manny Walters
Ben Dey & the Concrete Lions
The Liminals

GoodLuck is one of South Africa's most successful live electronic bands. Their music is an irresistible blend of electronica, pop and subtle influences of jazz. GoodLuck pushes boundaries with their unconventional approach to music and created a sound that is thoroughly their own.

Tresor brings a new pop sound, moulded in Africa, for the world to enjoy. Born in Congo, he moved to SA to pursue his music career. The journey started with him being a car guard in Durban. Seven years later he is now signed to Sony and also has a global deal with Ultra Music.

Master of staging creative Guerrilla performances through the guise of the most acclaimed Commander to ever lead the Royal Corps, the renowned advisor DJ InviZAble is a mythical being who travelled from a distant highland tribe and has been on guard at the front line of the freedom group known as Gazelle.

Tickets are available at Ticketpro from Tuesday 1 March:
Children under 12 (accompanied by adult) FREE
Learners under 18 (accompanied by adult) R80.00
Limited Early Bird Special R100.00
