Guests attending The Glenlivet JazzTown marquee this year may look forward to the ultimate social experience, enjoyed within an opulent marquee environment.

The epitome of jazz lifestyle experience

One of the biggest names on the local music front is South Africa’s own Dream Chaser and popular The Voice coach, Lira.  This internationally acclaimed songbird hits all the right notes and radiates an infectious positivity that touches the hearts of young and old.  With her vocal runs and captivating stage presence, she is set to deliver a breath-taking performance.


Sharing the stage will be Mi Casa, famously known for fusing elements of jazz, house, and pop to produce music which people of all ages can thoroughly enjoy, with numbers like Chocolat and Don’t Wanna Be Your Friend, earning them a string of Sama awards. 

Pioneers of the South Africa songbook, The Soweto String Quartet need little introduction.  This genre-defining ensemble who emerged during the late 1980s around the nucleus of the three Khemese brothers - violinists Sandile and Thami, and cellist Reuben - has achieved global fame for its unique brand of African-infused classical music. SSQ is universally loved for hits like Bossa Baroque, Zebra Crossing, Zulu Lullaby, and Mbayi Mbayi that catapulted township jazz, mbaqanga, and Kwela into the international arena.

The Sun Met is the definitive race among horse races, and it’s this synergy that has inspired our partnership. With this experience, The Glenlivet also tips its hat to the discerning men and women who enjoy the definitive The Glenlivet experience in all its facets,” says Eugene Lenford, brand manager for The Glenlivet SA.
