18h00 Capsolys
Hip Hop artist Capsolys, originally from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, is one of the fresh new faces of music in Africa. He likens his music to a photo album in which each track captures a moment in time of his thoughts and emotions as expressed in rhyme. For Capsolys his music freezes his life experiences in a positive art form.

From humble beginnings on dusty township streets, the quartet Guguletu Tenors now perform in top concert halls and for the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Chris Rock and Mariah Carey. The self-taught quartet were first discovered while at Fezeka High school in Guguletu.

15h30 Prime Circle
South African premier rock band, Prime Circle has shared the stage with musical great Collective Soul and Metallica.
18h30 Flash Republic
Flash Republic has come a long way since their launch in 2005 as a dance focused trio. Although they are quick to point out that dance is a core part of their music, their new album is described as forward-striding pop with the energy of early post-punk, the swagger of rock and 21st century avant-dance. Joining original band members Ryan Dent, Craig Massiv and singer Tamara Day will be guitarist Martin Rocka and drummer Isaac Klawansky.
