Anybody of age in the Capital City loves September for two reasons: One reason is Spring aka groove season. The second reason: Homecoming Africa, brought to you by the good people at Homecoming Events. And, for the 4th edition of Homecoming Africa (HCA), it is poised to be bigger than ever.
The same event company that brought us Tshwanefontein, arguably the best monthly event in the country, has a 3 day festival. That’s right – 3 days. 26, 27 and 28 September. The theme of HCA this year centers around the concept that HCA is More Than Music. That concept is broken down to 3 sections: Service, Laughter and Music.
The festival is broken down as follows:
Day 1 – Service: This is where the HCA team, along with their stakeholders (you included), will pay it forward to the community of Mamelodi, a township located on the north east side of Pretoria. This community service initiative is a noble gesture to show that event companies can also become positive contributors of society.
Day 2 – Laughter: This is for their stand up comedy showcase taking place at the Voortrekker Momument. Where the aim is for local comedians to get an opportunity to showcase their output to the growing comedic community in Pretoria and the rest of South Africa.
Day 3 – Music: The main event, which will also take place at Voortrekker Momument. The music festival features a smorgasbord of talented artists from South Africa, Botswana, Ghana & Kenya. The diverse line up appears to cater for a wide variety of music from Hip Hop, House, R&B and Amapiano, among other genres. Check out the line up below after the jump.
Last year’s event drew about 8000 people for their ambitious 3 stage layout. Now with their multiple artform pivot for the 2019 version, there are expectations to even or increase the amount of foot traffic.
Tickets are on sale now and they range from R150 – R650.
