The South African summer festival season opened in superb fashion on the weekend as the Corona Sunsets Festival returned to Johannesburg on Saturday, with a sold-out crowd and top artists including stand out performances.
Some of SA’s most iconic DJs were on the bill, many of whom are now international stars, including Major League DJz, Zakes Bantwini, Sun-El Musician, Msaki and Desiree, while the celebrated Ndlovu Youth Choir brought their own vocal magic to capture the iconic African sunset.
As for the international line-up, closing out the main stage was Dutch star DJ Sam Feldt while other international artists include French-born DJ and Producer, Nico De Andrea, as well as; UK-based house artist, Kitty Amor.
The Corona Sunsets Festival also left as little behind as possible, setting the standard for festival sustainability in SA. Barring plastic used in some of the setup logistics, paper & biodegradable packaging replaced all single use plastics.
For the first time at the Corona Sunsets Festival, this year’s edition featured three dancefloors while the festival also included organic craft food and art vendors as well as a variety of interactive lifestyle experiences, including an underwater & outdoor VR Experience, and a Drum Circle.
