Some of Mangaung’s best known artists will form part of an extravaganza of music and lyrics at the Vrystaat Arts Festival this year.

All the Way from Bloem, this year in its second year after the huge success of the project in 2018, will bring the 15 songs included in the project to the stage on Tuesday (02/07) in the Kopanong Kovsiekerk.

Anton Esterhuyse is the music producer for the show under direction of the initiator of the project, Jacobus Silwer.

The show will bring to stage several local artists that will perform their own songs, or songs that were written by other local songwriters.

One of these groups that will perform their song “Rewind” is local band Simple Stories. Sam Akach, Naledi Mohapi and CJ van Wyk form part of Simple Stories – a group that already had lots of success and often performs at venues in Johannesburg.

Naledi told Express that All the Way from Bloem is a great platform for local artists to express themselves. They are excited to perform the song live at the show.

Tracy Louter, first time participant in All the Way from Bloem, will perform her song “Two Faces”.

  • All 15 songs is included in a compilation CD that will soon be available. Tickets for All the Way from Bloem on Tuesday (02/07) at 19:30 cost R90 and are available from Computicket.
