SCORES of Ugu jazz supporters attended the 2015 Ugu Jazz Arts and Culture Festival main event at the Ugu Sports and Leisure Centre on Saturday 27 June.

The turnout this year was not as good as previous years as people said the tickets were too expensive.

However, Siyabonga­ Msomi, Cyas-sounds owner opposed the comments and said the event went well.

“From our side the event went very well despite the challenges that were encountered because of the introduction of the two stages,” said Msomi.

The event hosted artists from KwaZulu-Natal and across the country.

Despite the rain the festival attracted different crowds - the young who were more interested in the arts and cultural part and the older were more interested in the jazzy side of the festival.

The main stage was buzzing as Lira and Ringo Madlingozi and The Soil got the crowds on their feet singing with the artists
