Join some of SA`s top artists for the annual Liefde by die Dam Concert at Emmarentia Dam on Sunday August 5th. Liefde by die Dam, named after Valiant Swart’s famous hit song with the same name, strives to serve as a platform to showcase the best local music. The program features music for young and old, which makes it an ideal day out with your family or ‘besties’. In partnership with Jacaranda FM, more music you love.
The line-up for this year`s event includes Die Heuwels Fantasties, Karlien van Jaarsveld, Fran-cois van Coke, Koos Kombuis, Elvis Blue, Bongeziwe Mabandla, Martin Bester and Bouwer Bosch. The MC will be the popular Afrikaans comedian Schalk Bezuidenhout.
Die Heuwels Fantasties, Karlien van Jaarsveld, Francois van Coke, Bouwer Bosch and Elvis Blue have all been making headlines in the past few years with the release of new singles and al-bums and they have collectively won numerous prestigious local music awards. Add to this already impressive line-up, one of SA`s most influential singers, the legendary Koos Kombuis, the capti-vating new face of Afro-Folk Bongeziwe Mabandla, as well as the very popular Jacaranda FM presenter and singer Martin Bester, and the stage is set for a fantastic, memorable concert.
Pierre Greeff from Die Heuwels Fantasties says that Liefde by die Dam is a very special event. “A concert with a phenomenal line up, and we also aim to pay some love forward. Bring your own picnic blanket and leave it behind after the concert. The Liefde Wen team will make sure that the blankets find new homes where needed.”
So, while on the topic and in the spirit of ‘giving.’ What do the artists think? How can we spread even more love?
“We must first learn to love ourselves, then we will know how to love others. We were brought up in a culture that made us disown ourselves and feel guilty about who we are.” Koos Kombuis.
“Be kind to petrol attendants, waiters and call centre staff.” Elvis Blue.
“Kiss the person right next to you.” Francois van Coke.
“Just be nice. It`s as easy as that. It takes less effort and is easier for everyone.” Schalk Bezuidenhout.
There you have it. Love for the win!
For your day out at the dam there will be a delicious range of South Africa’s best artisan food trad-ers. You can also bring your own picnic baskets.
