This September love will definitely be in the spring air with Glen 21’s inaugural Soul Fest hitting our shores. The festival will take you back in time to the 90’s when R&B music was filled with color, rhythm and a whole lot of love.
Soul Fest is about bringing the music back to the people and taking us down memory lane with each and every song. The line-up will have every single R&B fan up on their feet singing along to every single lyric. This will be the ultimate throwback experience not to be missed.
The R&B and Soul music festival is set to hit South Africa’s major cities, Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town for three days.
Entertainment company Glen 21 presents three internationally acclaimed bands, TLC, SWV and Dru Hill. With these artists you won’t be chasing waterfalls but and they will certainly leave you weak.
Glen Netshipise, Director of Glen 21 Entertainment said that, “We are so excited to bring these 3 iconic bands to South Africa. Soul Fest is a really special platform to us and our aim is to continue to bring South African fans nostalgic music that they love”.
Billboard nominations, American Music Awards and Latex outfits are the base of the musical journey that will ignite your flashbacks of family gatherings, Sunday music, break-ups and make-ups in September.
Female group TLC (orignally made up of Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas) have scored nine top-ten hits on the Billboard Hot 100, including four number one hit singles “Waterfalls”, “No scrubs”, “Unpretty” & “creep”.
