The power of the network

The pandemic is behind us. It’s time to scrub up, head out and socialise. Wouldn’t it be refreshing to escape social media for a day or two and relish real-life conversations with fellow creatives?

Great music. Great content. Great people.

At just R250 for full access to all three days of #MEX23, including free entrance to Jazzathon 2023, the value and the calibre of content, and those delivering it, is unmatched.
