Sportscene’s first ever Capsule Fest (headlined by A$AP Ferg & Nasty C) went down on Saturday, 16 September 2017 in the cultural hub of Newtown, Johannesburg, and this year it’s back on Saturday, 24 November at the iconic Zone 6 Venue in Soweto and will bring to life all aspects of street culture through art, streetwear, talks and music.
“The street culture scene in South Africa has never been this big and impactful, yet the industry lacks a safe and family friendly event that brings all these street culture elements together in one place”, says sportscene’s head of marketing, Jonathan Muir. “We believe Capsule Fest offers the market just that and hence we’re super excited to host the first of what will hopefully be many editions to come.”
