Music4Masks will be presenting an online music festival at 12pm on the 28th of June 2020. The festival can be streamed live on Youtube and Facebook where viewers are encouraged to donate money to show support for the AfricaMasks4All initiative.
This online music festival will feature established and up-and-coming local acts in South Africa as well as the rest of the African continent. The lineup includes Toya Delazy, Van Coke Kartel, Wanlov the Kubolor, Josh Middleton, Desmond and the Tutus, Batuk, Espacio Dios, The Hellcats, Jacques Moolman, Nick Rush & Brent Harris, Jac Thomas, James Deacon, Tatum, Luh’ra, Manu Grace and Adelle Nqeto.
The festival will run for eight hours and feature non-stop music and entertainment. All proceeds will go towards the #AfricaMasks4All campaign to raise funds to help make and distribute cloth masks to people who cannot afford one.
Grant De Sousa AfricaMasks4All director said: “Since the start of the Covid-19 outbreak in South Africa and the lockdown, there have been several very cool streams, but few of this duration and diversity. The artists are 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”.
“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,” he added.
