US rapper Vince Staples is set to headline the second annual Capsule Fest, which will take place at Zone 6 in Soweto, Johannesburg on 24 November 2018. The rest of the lineup comprises of some of South Africa's leading musicians, including Riky Rick, AKA, Babes Wodumo, Shane Eagle, DJ Speedsta, and DJ Lag who will perform alongside an array of other popular street culture activities.
From his critically acclaimed debut album, Summertime ’06, in 2015 to his most recent project, Big Fish Theory, this Compton local keeps his sound deeply tied to his west coast roots and his message is one that knows no boundaries. Currently a member of the hip-hop trio Cutthroat Boyz, he is a standout rapper in today’s hip-hop world reaching critical acclaim with every release.
The Capsule Festis an urban street cultural festival that brings together artists, music lovers, influencers, designers, creatives, sport enthusiasts, consumers and brands in an authentic celebration of SA and African street culture.
Following last year’s success, the festival will again package a unique experience offering including brand exhibitions, sneaker activations, gaming, skating, live music talks, and a host of other exciting activities to cater for various age groups.
“We at Sportscene are super excited about getting involved in the second annual Capsule Fest again this year. We believed in the concept last year, put all our resources into it, and the culture supported it wholeheartedly,” says Sportscene’s head of marketing Jonathan Muir.
“This year, we are keeping it fresh taking the fest right to Soweto. The festival plan is to deliver an even bigger experience with more brands involved. Growth was imminent when you have the market behind you,” he adds.
