The line-up for the weekend also includes international music heavyweights such as Imagination feat Leee John; British soul singer, song-writer and musician Omar, R&B musician Alexander O’Neal and award-winning world music artist Femi Kuti.
Nigerian star Femi Kuti, local singer Thandiswa Mazwai, Black Coffee and legend Hugh Masekela are just some of the other acts festival goers can expect to see on Saturday, 7 and Sunday, 8 October at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in Johannesburg.
