The Muizenburg Unity Jam 2019 – Everybody’s Festival
The second installment of the Unity Jam has a big showing of Cape Town Reggae Artists, with over 30 artists and DJs on the line up. Unity Jam is a concept by South African band Trenton and Free Radical with the idea of creating a truly inclusive event; a family holiday experience affordable and accessible to all Capetonians and beyond, utilising Cape Town’s iconic beach resort and holiday destination, Muizenberg. Unity Jam, is in its second installment after being successfully hosted in Langa in 2014 with a diverse line up that included Gentleman, Ifani, Youngsta, Jeremy Loops, King Themba and more. It has expanded on the core idea of being an all inclusive festival attracting crowds from all walks of life through strategic Music Programming to now making it a truly inclusive affair by focusing more on Family and Lifestyle activations in combination with Music.
Trenton and Free Radical band has been working with the Reggae Community for many years and they enlisted the help of veterans Ras Teba Shumba and Judah Roots to put up a truly diverse and inclusive line up of Reggae artists and DJs in Cape Town which also includes Hip Hop, Ska and Dub. This Line up is truly a reflection of the the aims of the festival, to be inclusive and Unify. The artists and DJs represented come from very diverse sub-cultures of Reggae in Cape Town and it is such a joy to see then on one stage.
Putting this event together was not a choice. It was an obligation. Cape Town is still such a divided city and our music is all about bringing people together so when Marco came up with the idea it was a done deal.
