Johannesburg – T-Musicman, the producers of the upcoming Standard Bank Joy of Jazz Festival have announced that Presss, one of the artists scheduled to perform at the event, has been removed from the musical line-up for contravening the contractual obligations.

The organisers – at the time of writing - have not given any more detail about the specific contravention of contract that caused the removal. 

Mantwa Chinoamadi, General Manager of T-Musicman and the Festival’s Producer, said the organisation has looked at a befitting replacement, and will announce the artist or artists who will fill this spot in due course.

The 21st edition of the Standard Bank Joy of Jazz will take place across five stages over three nights: 27, 28 and 29 September 2018 at The Sandton Convention Centre.
