Cape Town International Jazz Festival’s Artist Line Up 2018.It seems this year’s Cape Town International Jazz Festival (Free Community Concert) will be super epic judging from the artists lined up to perform. The event is set to take place on the 20th of March 2018 at Greenmarket Square.
CTIJF will also present it’s All Star Band, made up of a selection of talented young musicians drawn from the CTIJF Music & Career workshops, as well as espYoungLegends 2018 winner Jarrad Ricketts (SA), Alistair Izobell (SA) and Claire Phillips (SA) who will deliver a collection of funk, R&B and fusion performances.
The concert is set to feature a wide range of township jazz, hip hop and Afro-pop The Soil (SA) presenting beat boxing and polyphonic harmonies to create warm kasi-soul with subtle echoes of the Kwaito. International acts include Incognito (UK) who will bring their brand of funky and acid jazz.
The CTIJF’s festival director, Billy Domingo is more enthusiastic about this year’s offering than ever, saying: “We are always excited to be able to stage this free community event. But in 2018, it is even more so, as this year we will be making Greenmarket Square the place to be on the eve of Human Rights Day. This year we expect the festive atmosphere to be bigger than ever, but in saying so, I am asking everyone to party responsibly. Make sure you get to Greenmarket Square early, as this year festivities will begin earlier than usual.”
