There will be a host of musical experiences at the 2013 Design Indaba, to be held from 27 February to 1 March, 2013, at a variety of venues. There will be 32 artists and 10 shows at eight venues in what the organisers are describing as "a musical tour" of Cape Town.
Design Indaba is putting on a host of musical experiences set in multiple spacious and intimate venues across as many musical genres as you'd care to name..
"After last year's joint venture with Spain's Sónar festival, we set about thinking of ways to reimagine a music festival for this year," explained Design Indaba's founder, Ravi Naidoo. The result is our inaugural Design Indaba Music Circuit.Three international acts
Thirty-two music acts (of which three are international), have been confirmed. As with previous Design Indaba music events, the diverse line-up of acts reflects a combination of musicians, producers and DJs, both long established and rising stars. The deciding factor behind curation is that their art must be unique or pioneering in their chosen field of music and wholly representative of the "sound of South Africa".
Each venue has also been hand-picked as being true to its core audience. So whether it's absorbing the spectacle of South African jazz legend Hugh Masekela together on stage with American jazz-fusion rock pianist Larry Willis in the intimacy of The Mahogany Room jazz bar (limited to 50 seats), or getting sweaty on The Assembly's dance floor to 10SUI (UK), Spoek Mathambo, Haezer, Gazelle and Niskerone, the Design Indaba Music Circuit will cater to even the most discerning music lover.
