Multiple award-winning South African rapper AKA comes on board as one of the main acts to kick off the inaugural festival. The rapper was also recently named as the ambassador of Reebok; one of the headline fashion sponsors of the festival.
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 platform that celebrates SA street culture in all its forms.
The concert, which is the biggest attraction of the fest, will be supported by more than 30 local artists and DJs. There will be two music stages; the main stage for the big name acts, and the WavesXV stage for up-and-coming indie acts and DJs.
