WIN: Tickets to Parklife Festival in Johannesburg THIS Saturday!

947 and TRACE Urban have kicked off the countdown to PARKLIFE GOURMET FOOD AND MUSIC FESTIVAL in Johannesburg THIS Saturday 10 June!

It’s another stellar line-up for the 6th annual Parklife Gourmet Food And Music Festival with 18 acts across 3 stages and an impressive selection of gourmet food. Joburg’s favourite food and music festival once again brings the best of the best to Marks Park in Emmarentia on Saturday.

The final entertainment line-up hosts Matt Simons (USA), De Hofnar (Netherlands), Gavin James (Ireland), Melvv (USA), Jeremy Loops, Matthew Mole, GoodLuck, Shortstraw, Sketchy Bongo, Euphonik, Tresor, Kyle Deutsch, Rubber Duc, Dominic Neill, Ben Dey & The Concrete Lions, Easy Freak, Apple Gule and Alexandra May.

Damon Forbes, CEO of Breakout Management and founder of Parklife Festival, has put his heart and soul into creating a beautiful family-friendly day festival, which has also become a platform to present new talent.

“What I love about the festival is that there is always opportunity for something new. This year on the food side there are new stalls like Beignet Brothers that are bringing something new and different, while we still have our favourites like Jo Burger, Cajun Joe and others. With the music we have artists like Ben Dey, Dominic Neill and Easy Freak who are where the likes of Kyle Deutsch, Sketchy Bongo and Tresor were two years ago, and Jeremy Loops and Matthew Mole were 4 years ago. So, I love bringing new things to people and giving opportunity to new people. The internationals are also really interesting and someone like Gavin James has massive support in Europe and a voice from the gods – you have to see him to believe it – and Melvv is one of my favourite electro newcomers. Really, this year is a treat for any fan of music, food or a good time with friends – it won’t disappoint.”

    I go loopy for Jeremy, and need some Goodluck in my life, my Parklife. Also the gourmet food to give me energy to Party all day 🙂 some people say it is a Park, I say it sounds like Heaven.

    First Gavin James will be there, I have to see him perfoirm live, also because he worked with Alan Walker. All the people I have listened to but never seen perform live: Jeremy Loops, Matt Simons, Sketchy Bongo,Kyle Deutsch, and I wouldnt mind seeing Euphonik again.

    This time is going to be warmer because there is food, and who doesnt like the park life?

    I would like to win this one.
