09 OCT | SUPERBALIST IN THE CITY CONCERT 10AM – 6PM

The pinnacle of the weekend remains the Superbalist In The City Concert set in the heart of Jozi parks, Emmarentia Dam on Sunday 9 October. Join us for a beautiful day at the dam while listening to a world-class lineup of international artists fresh off the plane from sister CPT festival Rocking The Daisies.

To kick off this year’s incredible international line-up, the highly requested U.S. award winning, indie band Foster the People will headline the main concert on Sunday 9 October. These Grammy award nominees behind the smash-hits “Helena Beat”, “Don’t Stop (Color on the Walls)” and “Coming of Age” and “Pumped Up Kicks” will ignite Emmarentia Dam with their addictive, quirky dance-infused pop and rock.

At only 24-years old, Mac Miller is part of the new school of hip-hop, a group of fast rising stars who are taking over the scene. In just nine short years since “dedicating his life to hip-hop” at the age of 15, his style has evolved from teenage frat-rapping to a more introspective and spiritual style in later albums like Faces and GO:OD AM. His sound has evolved from what critics call ‘party rap’ to an adaptive free-associative rhyming style, where Mac Miller is not just a rapper anymore, but also an eclectic artist who can easily adapt to different genres and can also craft, both for him and for other artists.

Adding to this epic lineup is live-loop master, beat boxing genius and comedic extraordinaire Beardyman. This UK based act has taken over the festival circuit with his unique and often improvised performances. Engaging with the audience he creates original tracks using only his voice. Peppering his set with jokes and insane vocal skills this is something you’ve never seen before.
