Solange Knowles to perform in Johannesburg

on

The global Afropunk Festival, hosted by Constitution Hill, takes place on 30 and 31 December 2017. The festival, which is annually hosted in New York, Atlanta, London and Paris comes to Johannesburg, South Africa for the first, welcoming artists such as Solange Knowles, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, Laura Mvula, King Tha and more.

The partnership between Afropunk and Constitution Hill is one which is born from a shared spirit and shared values – both represent a triumph of inclusion, multi-culturalism and equality for people of all races, genders, colours and creed. Afropunk celebrates black culture within an openness to multiculturalism, making it a perfect fit for a precinct like Constitution Hill that commemorates what a brutal culture of un-constitutionalism did to South Africa, and is now the home of the Constitution that secures South Africans’ rights.

In preparation for Afropunk, Constitution Hill has launched a unique tourism collective, I am Joburg for both local and international festival goers that will descend on Johannesburg this festive season. The website is a curated collection of unique experiences and tours celebrating Johannesburg’s diverse cultures and people. From walking and cycling tours of Johannesburg’s iconic neighbourhoods to unique culinary and cultural experiences, I am Joburg is about celebrating and supporting Johannesburg’s local tourism and creative entrepreneurs who make the city unique.
