Moozlie, Rouge & DJ Doowap to headline Berlin eKapa Festival

on

The cross-cultural one-day festival, Berlin eKapa will be taking place in Paarden Eiland on Saturday, 5 August 2017, showcasing the best South African art, fashion, music and culture, with a twist – a taste of Germany.
Coinciding with Women’s Month, festival goers will be entertained by some of the hottest female acts in SA, including Moozlie; Rouge; and DJ Doowap, supported by DJ Capital; and Beatsampras.
The festival will also have photo exhibitions from international talent such as Andre Alexander from Bavaria, Berlingraphie (Berlin) and Polaroidville (Berlin). Local audiences will experience the edgy works of Zimbabwean born, Thandi Gula and emerging talents Geraldzinyo, and Mr High Art.

Entrepreneurial opportunities for artists

Muma Khumalo, the festival organiser, highlights the importance of the festival – to promote artistic and entrepreneurial opportunities for young South Africans in hopes to continue to inspire change as well as access to international work exchanges.

“We have partnered with J&B on this exciting venture to promote the arts in South Africa. We have the support of the South African Embassy in Berlin which strengthens international ties and opportunities. Many of our artists struggle exhibiting at major galleries due to various reasons such as not being palatable enough or a lack of financing. Through this cultural festival, we are creating an inclusive space for artists and entrepreneurs to exhibit their works and make money too,” explains Khumalo.

“We don’t compromise on quality; all of our exhibitors are exceptional. Berlin eKapa Festival is a way to bridge the gap between SA artists and the rest of the world. The festival would resonate with fans of the First Thursdays concept – inspired by the modern European cultural landscape,” continues Khumalo.

Festival eats and treats

Brand stalls will include Hunnid Pin, Favelo International, and Mobile Cutz. Food and beverages available on the day will include a J&B and Smirnoff Bar, The Woodstock Gin Company as well as various food vendors catering to many preferences.

Red Bull’s culture sound system will provide cutting edge Funktion One sound technology to provide the best sonic experience. Rockwell All Suite Hotel & Apartments will host the festival’s press and media conference on Saturday, 5 August 2017.
