After months of lockdown desolation due to the Covid-19 pandemic, soul music lovers are in for a treat on 21 November 2020 at the Middelburg Banquet Hall in Mpumalanga.
An eclectic mix of soulful artists will converge in the Mpumalanga town for a night to remember. They vary from Samthing Soweto, Theo Kgosinkwe, Brian Temba, Press to Simmy, Blaq Diamond and Encore. DJs on the line up are DJs TBose Mokwele, KK, DJ Emza, Peter. The proceedings will be MCd by comedian Peter Mashata.
In line with the stipulated Coronavirus pandemic regulations of level 1 lockdown, masks will be provided at the door, and social distancing will be enforced and managed with the limited number of tickets on sale.
The Middelburg Soulful Night presented by RMM Events is poised to breathe new life into the souls that have been deprived of live music events during the pandemic. For some of the artists in the line-up, it will be their first time on stage since the lockdown.
It is the first annual event of its kind in the region and aims to bring the country’s best artists under one roof. Furthermore, the festival will establish a community and culture of soulful music lovers and ambassadors. It will also contribute to the socio-economic endeavours of the province as it positively impacts tourism in Mpumalanga, the province of the rising sun.
‘We look forward to welcoming back soul music lovers to live events after such a long time. Our artists are also revved up and ready to deliver their best. We are fully aware of the prevailing conditions of the pandemic and the safety of our patrons is a priority and so everything will be done responsibly.
Middelburg Soulful Night is only the start, we have lined up some of the best entertainment, community building, culture enriching and identity-defining activities and events for the province,’ said Sebabatso Maseko RMM project manager.
