At the end of an epic era in 2015, HomeComing Events (Pty) Ltd announced the last edition of their flagship HomeComing Picnic event. This announcement left many patrons and punters in the entertainment industry baffled as many believed the brand to be at its peak.
At the time of the final picnic in October 2015, HomeComing Events CEO, Katlego Malatji explained that the company felt the need to take their brand to the next level and develop a concept that would place them on an international level to compete with renowned events and festivals.
“On the success of our previous flagship event, Homecoming Picnic, we are launching HomeComing Africa (HCA) on October the 1st, 2016. This event will be bigger and better in every aspect than the last picnic. We are expecting a crowd of about sixteen thousand and based off previous events hosted by HomeComing Events at the Silver Falcon rugby club; we have assessed that the venue capacity will be able to accommodate us comfortably,” – HomeComing Events CEO, Katlego Malatji.
