Kid Fonque Heads to Soweto
Catch him at Native Rebels with Ziyon, Dwson and Wireless G
Posted: Sep 27 2018
This Sunday 30 September, Kid Fonque will bring a genre-bending line-up to a day event at Soweto's Native Rebels.
The event is the second in the radio host and DJ/producer’s tour across venues in Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth, Pretoria and Johannesburg.
In association with Ballantine's, the event will see vocalist, Ziyon – best known as lead vocalist in the SAMA-winning house duo Liquideep – light up the stage with a live performance. "I have no doubt that his sublimely soulful energy is going to elevate the Soweto edition of my tour!" says Kid Fonque.
Capetonian house producer Dwson also makes his debut in Soweto at the event, while co-founder of Thesis Soweto's influential clothing and lifestyle brand, Wireless G, rounds off the line-up.
Aptly titled “Kid Fonque Presents…”, the concept behind the tour is bringing his critically acclaimed 5FM radio show, Selective Styles to life – allow his new fans to experience the music in person.
Kid Fonque's reputation is one that's been built on 20 years of involvement in South African electronic music and club culture. Known for his broad-ranging taste, his profile and influence was boosted dramatically just over two years ago when, in October 2016, he landed a slot on 5FM.
"The real motivation behind these events is to connect to the fans and give them the chance to experience the radio show in real life, in their own city at a great venue. They’ll get to experience a Kid Fonque DJ set, soak up performances by incredible artists and connect with other like-minded music lovers. I couldn’t be more excited,” he explains.
