Ugu Jazz Festival - get your ticket

2017-06-01 06:00

IN 29 days, Ugu District Municipality, in partnership with Cyassound Holdings, will host the district’s grandest annual music festival, the 11th edition of the Ugu Jazz Festival on June 24 at the Ugu Sports and Leisure Centre.

This annual music extravaganza promises the greatest entertainment of hardcore jazz repertoires from internationally acclaimed jazz legends such as Jimmy Dludlu and Ringo Mandlingozi and soulful Afro­-soul music jams to the modern sounds in the music fraternity, which include Amanda Black and Sandz, among others.

Tickets are already on sale at Computicket, Shoprite and Checkers stores at R280 for general access, R350 for the Golden Circle and R1200 for VIP access. We have also made provision for limited pay parking space at the venue, which is on sale at R150 per ticket.

The Ugu Jazz Festival has gained loyal patrons and we are extremely proud to announce that our ticket sales have improved and we anticipate a sold-out venue. We urge those who have not yet bought tickets to do so now and be part of the district’s pride and joy.

Over the years, we have witnessed tremendous growth in this event, which has become a permanently fixture on our annual calendar of events.

The Ugu Jazz Festival is now one of the highly-recognised economy boosters in the district. Through it we have created temporary employment, given growth opportunities to young businesses and attracted business outside the boundaries of Ugu district.

This is also one of many initiatives implemented by our municipality to fight against three triple challenge - poverty, unemployment and inequality.

To ensure our patrons have a pleasant experience at the event while also ensuring that nearby residents are not inconvenienced in any way, certain roads will be closed during the event and monitored by the Road Traffic Inspectorate, Ray Nkonyeni’s Traffic Department and the South African Police Service to ensure easy access and to eliminate traffic congestion.

We will also have the usual park-and-ride services where patrons will be transported from the designated parking areas to the event venue.
