Bassline Fest I AM HERE

Arts and Creative Industries

Bassline Fest I AM HERE is a live music concert celebrating and reviving the live music experience and is set to be the gig of the year.

We are excited to sponsor Bassline Fest I AM HERE, which will be happening this Saturday, 27 November at the iconic Constitution Hill!

Thanks to our long-term partner, Bassline, who has also joined forces with ACCESS, this festival will be making sure that the Johannesburg residents and surrounding areas together enjoy the greatest Pan-African music festival this year at the iconic site!

We, as the French Institute of South Africa, are particularly thrilled to be involved with this festival as this is an extension of our partnership with Bassline who we worked with to bring back Fete (spelling) de la Musique this year, but it is also in anticipation of our upcoming Paris-New York festival, which is our commitment in keeping the spirit of music alive.

Tickets for the Bassline I AM HERE festival are available on Computicket and Howler, admission is R400 for adults and R200 for children and under, click on any of the links provided below t get your ticket before they’re sold out!

Starting from16h00 and ending at 23h00, this family-friendly concert is one not to be missed.

Headlined by our Iconic Thandiswa Mazwai “King Tha” & Zambian rapper-writer SAMPA THE GREAT. Also featuring is legendary South African rapper StogieT who will be performing with an all-star jazz quartet and Lesotho’s Morena Leraba and in supporting, roles are Jozi rising stars BLK JKS, LaliBoi & Ikati Esengxoweni (Fête de la Musique 2021 performers) and Moonga K. from Botswana.

The concert will be for a live audience (in line with COVID-19 regulations) and streamed internationally with Bassline’s festival partners.
