Yo Joburg! It’s that time of year again. Africa’s premium Hip Hop festival, Maftown Heights, has just released the first batch of its highly anticipated line-up for their seventh annual festival.
The event is set to take place on Friday, 25 November 2016, at Mary Fitzgerald Square, Newtown.
Entertaining fans from the Motswako Crew will be; Khuli Chana, Fifi Cooper, Mo Molemi, HHP, Towedee Mac, JR and Tuks.

KFC returns as a headline sponsor for a second consecutive year while Maftown Heights continues its media partnership since inception with YFM and Channel O. The festival is also proud to welcome PowerPlay as the Energy Drink category partner. Those lucky enough to purchase 1 of the only 500 available tickets to the PowerPlay VIP are in for a pimped out festival experience!
Maftown Heights and South African Breweries continue their 5 year partnership with the house of brands once again being the festival’s beer, cider and flavoured alcoholic beverage category sponsor. Festival attendees will also get to sample the exciting new tequila flavoured beer Liberado!
