During recent times I’ve had the privilege of watching the development of downtown Jozi into one of the most culturally rich and exciting areas on the continent, with the work being done in the Maboneng Precinct. From trendy themed restaurants and office space to lodging, fashion stores and even a new age cinema, the precinct is one of the coolest hubs in the inner city and it has clearly made an impression in the hearts of young people, attracting all ages, races and ethnic groups to its streets.
In celebration of the recent expansion of the Maboneng Precinct in downtown Jozi, the managing and social committee has decided to launch the exciting project with a massive hip-hop street festival aptly named ‘PROJECT MABONENG’. The event will feature some incredible local talent as well as an International guest as the headliner (the promoters are still playing their cards close their chest as to who the headliner is) and will take place later this month.
The street themed festival hopes to attract a diverse crowd further encouraging and supporting the development and infrastructure of the Maboneng precinct and the inner-city as a whole.
PROJECT MABONENG LINE UP:

Twins on Decks
Sphe and Naves
Hip-hop artist, entrepreneur and concert organizer George Avakian stated that PROJECT MABONENG will feature some of SA’s hip hop royalty, in addition to an infamous international outfit which aims to attracts over 5 000 people.
‘We are so excited to launch the new inner-city development with a mass celebration of this kind. We hope to attract even more people to come experience the vibrancy of the precinct for themselves, and what better way to do it than with a street festival.’
Doors open at midday while the 12-hour street festival experience will cost R325 per person. A convenient ‘Park & Ride service will be available to and from the Joburg stadium and is included in the ticket price. Limited tickets go on sale this week at TicketPro (www.Ticketpro.co.za).
Keep checking back to see who the International headlining artist is going to be – I’m relatively sure it’s going to be worth it!
