DStv Delicious Festival 2018
The sixth edition of the DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival will bring some serious food for the soul, with neo-soul icon Erykah Badu set to headline the two-day fest at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in Midrand on 22 and 23 September 2018.
New Zealand’s young soul singer and multi-instrumentalist Jordan Rakei, will also join Badu at this year’s festival. The musical line-up is further beefed-up by the funk DJ collective, Jazzanova, and the British acid jazz band, D’Influence. More acts are set to be announced in due course.
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 festivalgoers 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 10 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. 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.
Festival Director, Lloyd Cornwall said: “People want to go see high quality live music and enjoy amazing food at the same time so what better way to experience this than over the Heritage Day long weekend? DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival attract an estimated 40,000 visitors over the weekend due to unwavering standards of talent, production, safety and value for money. There is no other event in South Africa like THE DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival. We can’t wait to get it on again”.
