DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival 2018


The sixth edition of the DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival will bring some serious food and music for the soul, with Erykah Badu set to headline the two-day fest at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in Midrand on 22 and 23 September 2018.

Music For The Masses

Fun, chilled and amazing vibes only, this is the motto of the day. New Zealand’s young soul singer and multi-instrumentalist Jordan Rakei, who recently wowed local fans when he played his first-ever South African gig in Cape Town, will also join Badu at this year’s festival. The musical line-up is further beefed-up by the funk DJ collective, Jazzanova, and the British acid jazz band, D’Influence.

Over the years, music legends including Common, TKZee, Chaka Khan, Jamiroquai, Hugh Masekela, De La Soul, Lira, Macy Gray, Thandiswa Mazwai & Bongo Maffin, and Black Coffee, have played the main stage. Due to the overwhelming success of the past two years, organisers have once again decided to retain the two-day format and venue of this world-class festival.

The Delicious Mile

DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival, which has become the Springtime outdoor music attraction in Johannesburg, has also become a firm calendar favourite with foodies. Great culinary creatives get to share their passions at the Delicious Mile: the festival’s Gourmet Street-Food Market, and this year festival-goers can expect an even bigger and better gastronomical experience. Along the way, they can also visit the Coca-Cola Taste of the City, which will boast 10 pop-up restos that will serve up their flagship dishes.

In addition, patrons can enjoy a delectable multi-course meal perfectly curated by Reuben Riffel, who is returning to the festival. The long-table restaurant will have its own private bar with a variety of drinks that will perfectly complement every bite. The DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival has hosted some of the biggest names, including MasterChef SA Judge Pete Goffe-Wood, chefs Reza Mahammad, Siba Mtongana, Jenny Morris, Rachel Khoo, Ed Baines, John Burton Race and more. Expect pop-up stalls and food trucks with sumptuous, freshly prepared food and desserts, and a variety of beverages to suit any palate and diet.
