MORE ABOUT EACH OF THE ACTS:

Southern Wild:


Headed by 2011 South African Idols winner Dave van Vuuren, Southern Wild provides an original music experience. The band describes each song as a layered journey, where lyrical melodies rest between expressive guitar riffs.

A two-piece band, stripped down, performing bare knuckle rock. Their music is unashamedly raw, and their live performance is full throttle energy. With colossal sound, their songs vibrate through the crowd.

BCUC: 


Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness (BCUC) moves the audience – both physically and emotionally with an explosion of passion, funk and rhythm. They baptized their unique sound as ‘indigenous funky soul’.

Dan Patlansky: 


An international sensation in his own right, Patlansky is a maestro on guitar and has ploughed his way up the charts in the UK and USA with his signature blues music. Billed as a modern blues guitarist sensation, there’s no stopping this musical giant when he’s on stage.

Cortina Whiplash: 


From their silky jazz riffs in ‘Music ruined my life’ to their psychedelic outbursts in ‘Make it hard’, this all-girl band shakes the rock scene regularly, so be prepared to get your feathers ruffle.
