The 2018 Capital Craft Beer Festival will be held at the Pretoria National Botanical Gardens on 16 June 2018. The event will showcase more than 40 brewers as well as entertainment and a variety of food.
The entertainment stage will offer a range of live performers and will culminate with the broadcast of the rugby match between the Springboks and England. The performance lineup at the main stage includes Half n Half, Bad Peter, Crimson House, Femi Koya, and Spoegwolf. The Hillbilly Ho-Down stage will see performances by Zen Garden, We Are Charlie, The Black Cat Bones (Deboned), Retro Dizzy, African Rhythm Productions, and DBN GOGO. While Christiaan Baartman, Roxton met Herki, Janie Bay, El Cantante, and Ard Matthews will offer a toned down musical experience at the acoustic stage.
If you’d like to get in on the performing, the Firestone Karaoke Kombi (#FirestoneKK) will convert a classic 1972 VW Brasília kombi and a brand Kombi into mobile karaoke studios. The Brasília kombi is host to the large catalogue of old-school songs, while its newer sibling features the best of new school karaoke songs. A team of audio technicians will record each performance and upload it to the internet, before sharing it via mobile message with the participants.
