“The street culture scene in SA has never been this big and impactful, yet the industry lacks a safe and family friendly event that brings all these street culture elements together in one place,” said Sportscene’s Head of Marketing Jonathan Muir in a statement. “We believe the Capsule Fest offers the market just that and hence we’re super excited to host the first of what will hopefully be many editions to come,” added Muir.
