DreamStream Festival – 3 Days, 33 Artists, 1 platform for 1 Cause!


South Africa’s live events and entertainment industry are coming together to put on the biggest streaming festival to raise funds for the unsung heroes of the industry by hosting a 3-day event featuring 33 of SA’s finest artists from 24 – 26 April 2020.

Your ears, your eyes and a donation of your choice. For those that want to dance with your friends, you can join the limited zoom room (Max 1k people) Or set up your own private zoom party.

The festival will also offer viewers ‘DreamCamps’ where they can get to enjoy the music privately with their friends or family (up to 500 people) via Zoom, the video conferencing platform, allowing them to hang out, dance and have fun together. Tickets for the event are free and available at howler.co.za  but all participants are encouraged to donate. 

The funds raised by DreamStream will go towards SAFE (South African Fund 4 Entertainment), an NPO fund established to help support the unsung heroes and heroines within the live events and entertainment industry. In just 24 hours since we announced, we have received over 1500 relief applications to feed 11000 people. DreamSteam is the first major fundraiser for SAFE and is trying to raise R1m which will aim to feed 11 000 crew members

These people are the technicians, stage riggers, cleaners, security guards, bar staff, ticketing staff and more, who are very often hired on a temporary/hourly basis and are sitting at home with no income and food as a result of COVID-19 and the lockdown.

DreamStream Digital festival will see DJs play 1-hour super mixes from several genres that include EDM, Amapiano, House & Hip-Hop. This line-up of musicians and DJs include:

Friday 

Lady Lea, Abby Nurock, Kid Fonque, Jon S, Strange Loving, Kyle Cassim, Special Guest, Jazzuelle, Dean Fuel, Dino Moran, Vimo and Watson.

Saturday

Anthea Scholtz, Karoo, Toby 2 shoes, Boogie Vice & Kennedy & El Gordo, Goldfish, Floyd Lavine, Culoe De Song, Richard Marshall, Ryan Murgatroyd, Mark Valsecchi and Fogshow.

Sunday

Sonic Bloom, B_Type, Kanan K7, ILLING, Dogstarr, Maximilian, Nic Grater, Geometric Flux and Headroom.

To help, SAFE has partnered with Pick ‘n Pay’s Feed The Nation relief fund. Each rand donated will go towards a voucher scheme, where each voucher to the value of R600 will help feed a family of five for a month by providing them with a basket of food and hygiene essentials.

To ensure that each voucher reaches those affected, SAFE is working with event supply chain companies to identify those in need and deliver the vouchers via their employers or former employers. Employers of event supply chain companies are encouraged to apply for their employees or former employees to help manage the process.

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…
