SHARPEVILLE will next week be abuzz with activity!

The third instalment of the Sharpeville Food Festival is just around the corner and super-hot artists are lined up to entertain the crowd.

That, and of course
mouth-watering dishes from local chefs, will keep stomachs full and energy levels high.

This is taking place at George Thabe Stadium on 27 October.

Founder, Romeo Malepe, says the event will be bigger and better.

Festivalgoers can look forward to a bigger stage, a secure kiddies’ area and cream of the crop DJs and performers.

The event, in partnership with Sunday Sun and Daily Sun, Emfuleni Local Municipality and NDS Chefs Academy, aims to rebrand Sharpeville as an entertainment destination of note.

“We’re inspired by other townships like Soweto and how they have managed to rebrand the famous Vilakazi Street in Orlando West,” Romeo said.

“To bring positive change, we need to work together as a township. The idea of the festival came to me through a dream and I feel like I’m the right person to do this job since I work in the advertising industry.”

Romeo will also be deejaying alongside Jullian Gomez, Akio Kawahito, Just Themba, DJs Pearl and 1D.

The line-up includes performers such as Masedi ZA, The Maffinz, Nadia Nakai and Khuli Chana, among others.

The popular helicopter rides are also back by popular demand this year.
Tickets cost R150 (pre-sold) or R200 at the gate.
VIP tickets cost R350 each. Helicopter rides will set you back R200 and kids under 12 enter free of charge.
