Boiler Room X Ballantines’ True Music Africa Returns To SA For First Show In Pretoria

Following two amazing events in Cape Town and Johannesburg, as we as Douala and Nairobi, the True Music Africa Tour is coming back to South Africa for its inaugural Pretoria show. Boiler Room x Ballantine’s True Music today announce Pretoria, South Africa as one of the stops for True Music Africa, a tour that unearths pioneering, self-starting talent and their stories of doing it for themselves within the underground music scene.

A first for Boiler Room and Ballantine’s, the inaugural True Music Africa has toured South Africa, Cameroon and Kenya. It’s given a platform to some of the freshest talent the continent has to offer, broadcasting their performances to an audience of more than 15 million people around the world, and sharing the artists’ insights and experiences of their local music scene via a compelling documentary series.

Ballantine’s True Music has been making its name in the SA house music scene for years with Boiler Room, and they’re going back to their roots for this stop on the True Music Africa tour, with the first-ever Pretoria show. It will bring together a stellar roster of house selectors for another incredible event at a secret location.

On Wednesday 5 December, some of  the  most  exciting  names  from  South  Africa’s underground, including a combination of house music up-and-comers and pioneers, and a highly-anticipated set from kwaito legend and True Music Africa Forum keynote speaker, Oskido, will be broadcast live to the world.
