South Africa’s greatest Afrikaans artists collaborated to bring relief from the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected performers and their livelihoods across the country.
The 26 artists started the collaboration during lockdown with a live stream concert and will now be performing live, together at Sun City’s Valley of Waves, later this month.
For those tired of being couped up and wanting to get out and about again, the 12-hours of uninterrupted performances promises to rejuvenate fans and get the blood pumping again.
