The lineup will be supported by beauty pop-up bars – like the ghd braids bar where the fitness trend for braided hair for a workout will see the stylists braiding hair free of charge as well as hosting tutorials on how to do everything from a boxer braid to a fishtail. Beauty brands will be dishing makeovers and advice, while the fashion market will see a summer pop-up selling local labels across swimwear, kaftans, hats, and cover-ups, as well as a leggings bar and a Christmas pop-up with amazing local gift ideas from jewellery to stationery.
The stages will host the speakers and workshops as well as fitness classes. Mapule and Takkies, Caralishious, and Inge Bezuidenhout will take the crowd through a sweat session. Maps with her legendary high impact workout, Takkies for her Rockinheels routine, Cara will be practising yoga, and Inge will be kicking off a kickboxing sesh.
