South Africa’s number 1 Afrikaans music festival Liefde by die Dam was back in full swing in April this year with two sold- out shows in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Tickets sold out so rapidly that the organisers decided to host this popular day-festival again in the second half of the year. “Especially now that the covid regulations have been lifted completely,” explains Pierre Greeff from Die Heuwels Fantasties, who is also one of the organisers. “With the previous two concerts in April we saw that people are keen to have a good time and experience epic concerts again. The good vibes were totally contagious! In addition to that there are currently so many great artists on the circuit, we want to get more of the best on the Liefde stage.”
A second concert in Johannesburg will be held at Emmarentia Dam on 14 August. Phase 1 tickets sold out within hours. More tickets were made available when the recent final lift of restrictions was announced. Music lovers in the north must make haste, these will go fast too!
Cape Town, tickets for the second 2022 Liefde by die Dam at Meerendal, Durbanville is now available! Greeff says: “Liefde by die Dam has always been a big day out, with big names on a big stage in front of a big crowd. We are very happy that we can present the event in the style and scale that it is used to. Festival goers can expect to see their personal favourite artists with the best sound on a fantastic stage. We are working non- stop to prepare everything so that people can have the absolute best day out.”
The popular actor and comedian Schalk Bezuidenhout will be the MC at both concerts this year. Bezuidenhout, who kept us going through harsh lockdowns with his “Feeling good, feeling positive!” conversations
There is lots of love to go around. So come to the jol mense, it`s going to be another great Liefde day out!
