South Africa (16 July 2020) – In the spirit of Ubuntu and Freedom of expression, dozens of musicians and DJs from around the world are pledging their 67-minutes to spread a message of hope, freedom, resilience, and unity through AFREEFEST, a 24-hour free-to-view music festival.

These musicians and DJs include a veritable rainbow of world-renowned musicians including locals Themba, Qadasi & Maqhinga, Abby Nurock, Sibusile Xaba, Black Picket Fence, international musicians John Fairhurst (UK), My Baby (Netherlands) and more who will be a part of the festival. Inspired by the African term of ‘Ubuntu’ meaning “humanity” and “I am because we are”, AFREEFEST is a platform that was created to share cultural experiences in art, music, and creativity.

The festival is powered by people who inspire change. As part of the festival’s mission, to inspire all, each of the performing musicians will share a personal 67-second message of inspiration to the world, a world that needs wisdom and togetherness during this turbulent period.

“2020 is proving to be a year of difficulty for many of us; it is also a year that is seeing a lot of change, both positive and negative. The festival was created to give fans of music, art and creativity a space in which they can pause, breathe and connect with themselves and others,” said the festival organisers.

The festival will go online on Mandela Day, 18 July from 00:01 AM (CAT – Central African Time) till 11:59 PM and will be aired on AFREEFEST.com, SkyRoomLive and the SkyRoomLive Facebook page. While the event will be FREE, viewers are encouraged to donate what they can, donations made will go towards several charitable efforts.

A full line up of artists, DJs and performers will be released daily throughout the week.

For more information, visit the Facebook Page and stream the concert live on www.AFREEFEST.com on Saturday, 18 July. Follow and join in the fun via #AFREEFEST.
