2017-09-13 06:01

A host of local artists, including musicians and exhibitors, are billed to perform at this year’s Heidedal Braai Day on Saturday, 23 September.

The one-day event is one of the traditional South African Heritage Month celebrations to showcase heritage with the great diversity of cultures.

The occasion will be staged at the Clive Solomon Rugby Stadium.

Dr Nathan Bagarette, spokesperson of the organisers, said designers of indigenous, colourful attire were welcome to participate.

He said there would be local artists to perform as curtain raisers to pave the way for groups pencilled in for the main performances.

The theme is “Heidedal Braai Day”.

“Attendees are encou-raged to wear their colourful attire, showca-sing vibrant African heritage and culture.

“This is a family day which is encouraging bonding.

“We are teaming up with the police to tighten security, as we are also trying to root out the scourge of drug abuse among the youth,” said Bagarette.

The following groups are set to perform: Men of Soul, Stone Sisters, Gusinda Haramse, vocalist Doreen Solomon, Wenuf and Alex Combo, Deda Matela and Milton, Banky Da Rapper and Pauly Rhayms, Flawless Emceez, as well as DJs Finzo, Leiks, Cubin Blow, Dick Schalkwyk and to Zee Louw.

Attendees are encou-raged to bring camp chairs, braai stands and to come early to get ideal spaces.

Gates will open at 10:00 for art exhibitors and African cuisine vendors to get ideal spaces.

Tickets are available at R80 for adults and R40 for children.
