Sheer Entertainment and Breakout Management have joined forces to make Women’s Day a musical affair. The public holiday is on August 9 and a concert featuring some of the biggest artists in the country is planned.

Called Tribute to Women, the all-day affair which takes place at Emmarentia Dam in Johannesburg will feature women from different genres. You can expect to see the likes of soul star, Zonke, house music maven, Lady Zamar, colourful rapper, Sho Madjozi as well as Afropop powerhouse, Mafikizolo.

Joe Chakela, who is the director of the show says: “I have been producing the Divas event at Macufe for many years and I have seen it grow into on a prime event. It was the obvious next step was to provide a regular platform with which to celebrate and showcase the talent at a concert in Johannesburg where I live.”

He also says: “I could not think of a more central and scenically beautiful space than the Emmarentia Botanical Gardens for an afternoon out with the family or friends with a picnic basket enjoying our diverse lineup.”
