Just two more sleeps until this year's DStv Delicious Festival.

As part of gearing up for the weekend's big event DRUM has spoken to another one of the event’s headline acts, Soul II Soul.

The Back to Life artists  are among three headline acts set to perform at Emmarentia Dam on Saturday May 31 2014 as part of the decadent food festival.

Ten lucky readers hold VIP double tickets to this extravaganza and we cannot wait to meet you all.

We caught up with the band a few days before their highly expected arrival. Catch the Q&A below:
