GRAMMY-WINNING LOUIE VEGA TO LEAD STAR-STUDDED DANCE STAGE

Grammy Award winner Louie Vega will head up one of the best dance music lineups ever witnessed at the two-day DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival.

The festival takes place at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in Midrand on 22 and 23 September 2018.

Vega, who last month released a 27-song double album called NYC Disco – including never been heard before vocals from the late Luther Vandross, will get to play his new music to thousands of fans at the Vodacom Dance Arena hosted by Oskido and Kaya FM. The stage will open at 2pm on both days.

New York City-born Todd Terry, and South African dance demigods DJ Christos, Vinny Da Vinci, DJ Oskido, DJ Fresh, and Greg Maloka complete the illustrious roster. While the two New Yorkers are only playing on Saturday and Sunday respectively, fans get an opportunity to watch the others play both days. It would be nearly impossible to put together a better list of dance music icons than this!

This announcement follows that of neo-soul icon Erykah Badu as the headliner of the Heritage Day weekend festivities at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit. It was revealed that the singer would also be joined by New Zealand’s young soul singer and multi-instrumentalist Jordan Rakei, DJ Collective; Jazzanova, and the British acid jazz band; D-Influence.

DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival, which has become THE Springtime outdoor music attraction in Johannesburg, has also become a firm calendar favourite with foodies where great culinary creatives share their passions at the Delicious Mile: the festival’s Gourmet Street-Food Market. This year festival goers can expect an even bigger and better gastronomical experience at this extensive market. Along the way, they can also visit the Coca-Cola Taste of the City, which will boast 8 pop-up restos that will serve up their flagship dishes.

Patrons can enjoy a delectable multi-course meal perfectly curated by Reuben Riffel who is returning to the festival. The long-table restaurant will have its own private bar with a variety of drinks that will perfectly complement every bite. DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival has hosted some of the biggest names including MasterChef SA Judge Pete Goffe-Wood, chefs Reza Mahammad, Siba Mtongana, Jenny Morris, Rachel Khoo, Ed Baines, John Burton Race and more. Expect pop-up stalls and food trucks with sumptuous, freshly prepared food and dessert, and a variety of beverages to suit any palette and diet.
