South Africa's top DJ and producer Heavy K will be headlining the Annual Cheers Festival taking place in the North West Province on Saturday.
GKLM Events pulled all stops to bring together a potent line up of artists to headline the 5th installment of the event at the Tlokwe Municipality in the Dr Kenneth Kaunda District Municipality.
The North West Province comes together to celebrate the community and its people while promoting family and culture.
The event is set to take place on Saturday, 30 November at Trimpark in Potchefstroom.
Over the years, the events company has been pioneered in creating platforms for North West Province’s community by adding emerging talent in the arts and culture and sports sector as part of the end year function.
This allows locals and these emerging artists to share the platform and rub shoulders with SA’s finest and A-listers in the entertainment industry.
Here is what to expect
South Africa’s top celebrities including Monique Bingham, Mlindo the vocalist, Reason HD, Dineo Ranaka (Metro FM), Toll Ass Mo (Comedian), The Funny Chef, Cedric Fourie (Actor), Jesse Suntele (Actor), Earl W Green, DJ Zan D, Zero 12 finest, 2 point 1, Bigstar Johnson, DJ Kgomtso M, Tshego and many more will grace the stage.
Potchefstroom is known for its rich agriculture, mining and services industry, like the reproduction of steel making it one of the bedrocks of South Africa’s economy.
Perhaps its museums like the Potchefstroom Museum, markets and the reputable Northwest University, are among some of the renowned tourist’s attraction sites in the province.
The event which is dubbed the Macufe of the province, is known for bringing an influx of festival goers from and around the North West and other cities to a standstill.
Last year, it attracted over 5000 patriots and shutdown the main roads all in celebration of the year that was.
Besides the stellar line up of entertainers, patriots should expect the best indoor marquee experience, gaming, sporting activities and music for every generation. This promises to be a celebration of lifestyle and culture in the North.
The event is also significant in the economic development of the province, creating over 260 employment opportunities for local residents.
Event organiser, Diphaphang Micheal Mochobo said “The idea was birthed by the lack of community activities that promote job creation, entrepreneurial spirit and skills transfer. On the day we are able to employ 150 securities personnel, about 40 janitors and waste management staff and production team comprises of about 70 people”
Festival with a purpose
Diphapha Micheal Mochoba continued to add “This initiative is curated mainly to empower our community’s economy, not only do we employ staff but we also outsource services and have different local businesses providing different services like Photography, Catering and Décor.
“Some of the proceedings from the event, we donate to the annual GKLM Blanket drive and sanitary towel projects as a way contributing to basic needs program in the community and encourage philanthropy from local businesses and government”.
