DRUM Beat 2012 moves to a new home

The DRUM Beat concert for 2012 will be moving to a new location. The inaugural DRUM Beat concert held at Mofolo Park, Soweto, in April 2011 was a family-friendly music spectacle. This year the festival moves to 1 and 2 June and at Birchwood Hotel and Conference Centre in the City of Ekurhuleni and will be a bigger and more exciting musical experience. DRUM Beat Ekurhuleni will showcase prominent cross-genre artists on the main stage, jazz stage and piano lounge. The programme will be predominately jazz-oriented with a twist of Afro-pop and dance music. Confirmed appearances on the bill include Lira, Sibongile Khumalo, Asanda Bam and Trio (Steve Kekana, Babsy Mlangeni and Joe Nina) - the names of other artists will be announced later.
