Global music and lifestyle festival announces top local and international dance acts
The star-studded line-up for the Corona Sunsets Festival World Tour has been announced, with top local and international acts to perform across two stages at the event, to be held in Cape Town at the Glen Country Club, Clifton, on April 1.
Artists performing include iconic SAMA-Award winning South African artists, Sun-El Musician, Black Motion, Majozi, Msaki, Musa Keys, Jeremy Loops and Good Luck as well as special guest, seven-time Grammy winner, American DJ Louie Vega.
Considered one of the best living house music deejays, New Yorker Louie Vega is a leader in global dance music, with a music palette mixing everything from house to salsa, Afro-beat and jazz and soul. Seven times nominated, Vega received a Grammy for his remix of Curtis Mayfield’s “Superfly” and later did an instrumental remix of Black Coffee’s “We Are One” featuring Hugh Masekela.
A first-of-its-kind global touring festival, the Corona Sunsets Festival World Tour follows the sunset worldwide and features a full year of festivals with international musicians and DJs performing as the sunset takes center stage at 14 iconic beach destinations across the globe. These include South Africa, Chile, Peru, Colombia, Italy, Japan, Canada, UK, China, Greece, Brazil, Dominican Republic, India, and Uruguay.
Fresh from appearing on “America’s Got Talent” All Stars edition recently, the celebrated Ndlovu Youth Choir will be bringing their own vocal magic to the festival’s iconic “sunset moment”on the recognizable, Mandala symbol, main stage design. For Msaki fans, this will also be the chance to see one of her last shows before the singer takes a performance sabbatical in June.
In addition to music performances, the festival will immerse attendees in creativity along with interactive elements such as eco-friendly culinary experiences with locally sourced ingredients, markets, a ‘Village of the Free Spirit’ and installations from local artists, encouraging festival goers to unwind and enjoy nature.
“We are so looking to welcome South African and the world to the festival in a truly Corona way and amplify the feeling of relaxation and rejuvenation that nature provides us. We want to share our love of nature by making guests more aware of their environment, allowing us all to slow down, disconnect and unwind,” said Marsha Kumire, Marketing Director, Corona South Africa.
Adds event organiser, Shaun Duwe: “The setting could not be better for what is going to be the ultimate summer sunset celebration. Putting the line-ups together for the festival is incredibly intricate and we are incredibly proud of the mix of incredible local and international superstars and sonic styles that will entertain while paying tribute to the setting sun.”
