The organisers have confirmed that tickets for the festival are now available at Computicket. The interesting twist this year is that the public will get to decide on the lineup for the Festival. The local lineup will join Rick Ross when the festival kicks off on the 2nd of May at the Moses Mabhida stadium.
For the first time ever South African fans will get a chance to vote for the local favorites who will then form the local line up alongside the international headliner. The competition to open for all fans across the country and opened to any credible South African hiphop artist. Voting is open until end March and the final lineup will be announced mid April. As an incentive, not only will voters get a chance to choose the line-up but will also stand a chance to win tickets to the show. Show promoters confirmed that they have reserved 10% of the targeted capacity for give-aways.
Early bird tickets are now on sale and range from R380 for General Access tickets and R850 for the VIP experience. Tickets will only be available at Computicket this year and NO tickets sold at the door. VVIP Hospitality packages will be available for out-of-town guests to be announced next month.
This year’s event promises to have a star-studded line-up outdoing the success of 2014. The first Youth Hip Hop Festival took place last year with over 15 live acts performing to over 6000 people. This year promoter Richie R Concepts decided to spice it up a little bit and add an international act to the festivities to attract a bigger audience.
The festival hopes to attract over 15 000 revelers this year. Gates open at 12pm. Concert goers are allowed to bring cooler boxes before 4pm where after refreshments will be on sale.
