Get ready to shuffle those feet, sway those hips and enjoy a good old “sokkie”
Some of the best young Afrikaans musicians are headed to Carnival City this spring. Get ready to shuffle those feet, sway those hips and enjoy a good old “sokkie” as Jonk in Afrikaans takes guests on a musical journey packed with great dance and pop hits.
Described as a “pop-sokkie extravaganza” by its makers, Jonk in Afrikaans features fresh new faces in the Afrikaans music industry. Guests can expect to see Elvis se Seun, Franja du Plessis, Chane Valentine, Dirk van der Westhuizen, Juan Boucher, Tussen Sterre, Irene-Louise van Wyk and Heidi. They are young and incredibly talented and bursting at the seams with new, original, modern dance and pop songs, and are getting together to do something great with that.
Unlike a typical concert where guests are glued to their chairs for lack of space to actually get down and boogie, Jonk in Afrikaans allows for the dancer in you to be unleashed. The visual effects, scenic lighting and crème de la crème of the Afrkaans music scene make for a tasteful, fun-filled audio and dancing feast.
Who thought of Jonk in Afrikaans? The idea started with two young entrepreneurs who religiously attend Afrikaans music concerts but identified a massive gap in the market for something fresh aimed at the younger generation. For this reason the event focusses very much on dance and “sokkie” music, allowing for freedom to dance and participate in the extravaganza.
“We are excited about bringing this brand new offering to Carnival City for the very first time,” says Michelle Smith,, marketing manager of Carnival City.
“This is not going to be your average, everyday Afrikaans music show.”
Diarise October 20, 2018, and tell friends and family not to miss out on this one. Although very dance focused, seats will be available for guests who would prefer to watch the artists perform.
The festivities take place at Carnival City’s Big Top Arena and tickets are available from Computicket for between R120 and R250 per person.
