AKA joins the studded line-up for the first annual Capsule fest taking place in Joburg this Saturday, September 16.

The festival features US rapper A$AP Ferg and local hip hop stars Nasty C and Shane Eagle among others.

Capsule Fest is a street culture festival that aims to be the Mecca for all urban culture brands, artists, designers, influencers, consumers and stakeholders.

The objective of the event is to offer a credible platform that celebrates SA street culture in all its forms even for the next generation.

Taking place at the Mary Fitzgerald Square in Newtown, the festival will host a music concert among an array of street culture activities including: skate park, brand pop-up stores, art installations, customizing booths, beer garden and food village.

With street culture scene being this big in SA right now, focus on young talent is just a natural way of supporting the growth. Since Capsule Fest is all about the culture and purely investing in it, the environment is set up to be safe and family friendly with young people playing a huge part in the festival”, says organiser Nick Kaoma.

Additions to the main stage include Kwesta, Sho Madjozi, DJ’s Milkshake, Loyd, Capital and Twins on Decks.

The Waves Stage will feature Joburg based artists 2Lee Stark, J Molley, Una Rams, Frank Casino and Patrickxxlee.
