There’s no doubt about it: Levi’s® Vintage Sundays has raised the bar, setting a new standard for local music events. Since 2004 the iconic jeans brand has used this platform to bring local musicians closer to their fans with 116 events and 243 performances, making it more than just the longest running free nationwide music programme in history – it’s now a national phenomenon, a meeting point where music lovers with a variety of tastes can enjoy South Africa’s finest. Levi’s® Vintage Sundays has brought fresh talent to new fans, paid tribute to the legends and opened ears to many diverse sounds. And with every year it goes from strength to strength because it’s built on a very solid premise: South Africans make awesome music and the fans love hearing it live.
“This project is very important and dear to us,” says Levi Strauss South Africa’s Mike Leslie. “We believe that whilst it has reached a wonderful maturity and is attracting a huge amount of interest, it still maintains the same fresh edge that it did in the beginning.” Levi’s® Vintage Sundays is all about sharing musical excellence and nurturing a culture of appreciation. If you love your music local, then it doesn’t get better than this – diversity, quality and an unbeatable vibe. Bring on the Sundays.
And now, those infamous Sunday nights are back! Mzansi’s top bands are ready to line up and make sure the weekend ends on a high note. Yes, Levi’s® Vintage Sundays returns and that means that the week now officially ends in the early hours of Monday morning. The madness gets going at The Crazy 88, the newly renamed venue in Norwood that has hosted Jozi’s leg of this legendary tour for the last couple of years. So get some rest now, when these weekly tribute to local music start, there’ll be no time to.
