It has been a crazy year for us with 3.2 million people watching the New Years Eve event to trending No1 on twitter every Thursday with the #EzaseAfro reality hit series. Now we come to the exciting Durban July Weekend. 5 years ago we started Fact Durban Rocks as a bigger event at People’s Park and many people said we wouldn’t be able to keep filling the park year on year with just local artists. Our faith in SA artists proved justified this month when SABC announced 90% SA music play listed across their channels. We have been doing #100%SAmusic for 5 years and our events are growing year by year. Even the brands we partner with like Amstel are passionate about SA music and support our growth. Over 100000 south african people who have attended our events over the last 5 years have proved that local artists matter with every Fact Durban Rocks that has taken place. We are always humbled by their support.

The line-up for #FactJuly2016 is full of this years and last years hitmakers as well as the new talent like Durban’s own Nasty C making big waves in the music industry. Another Durban son Black Coffee has lit up the world with his humble homegrown talent by sticking to his true self and not trying to imitate world styles but rather taking his uniqueness to the world. AKA is an ambassador for authentic SA Hip Hop also getting recognition from around the world.

You can expect a lot of collaboration type performances from some of the best artists in SA who have released tracks together this year. As we did last year we will be having all stages under cover for our Winter Fact Durban Rocks event. This will be the biggest main stage and house floor under cover we have ever done.

We have some Exclusive evening sets for #FactFans with AKA (with band); Black Coffee (with band);Durban’s Finest; Nasty C and Kwesta (with band)

Other Top SA artists performing will be Mi Casa; Sphe & Naves; Big Nuz; Black Motion; Da Les; Riky Rick; Duncan; DreamTeam; DJ Dimplez; Lvovo; Major League DJs; Zakwe; DJ Speedsta; Shekhina; DJ Merlon & Mondli; Witness The Funk; DJ Feel; VJ Nutty; Fistaz Mixwell; Culoe De Song; Mobi Dixon; Naak Musiq; New Teenz; HappyGal; Fisherman; Cndo; Undisputed Boys; Distruction Boys; Prince Kay Bee; Rocksilver; Sir Bubzin; Mo Flava and MCs from Ukhozi FM and Mzansi Magic
