THE much anticipated Golden Bean Free State Music Awards is set to captivate audiences with local performances.

Themed Party beyond the great Gatsby, the awards ceremony on 28 November will pay homage to the Free State entertainment industry.

With 21 categories, the awards promise to deliver a night of glamour in its third year.

Founder and organiser of the Golden Bean Music Awards, Tebogo Kotsi, says his passion to develop local talent has been the driving force behind the success of the awards.

“Free State artists need a platform which would not only expose their talent, but also honour the hard work artists put in to perfect their craft,” Kotsi said.

He explained that tight budget constraints have been one of the biggest challenges, but he is determined to produce a world-class event.

Kotsi has roped in socialite and presenter Lerato Kganyago to present the Best Female DJ award of 2015.

This year, voting lines will run during the show.

“I want to give the event credibility by making the voting process transparent.”

Next year the awards will be open for national artists as well.

To vote for your favourite artist SMS the code, e.g. SOY-K. to 44730. The artist with the most votes wins the category.
