Delivering on its promise to help bring some of the most celebrated local artists to the city of Port Elizabeth and in celebration of the diversity of authentic South African talent, The Boardwalk proudly hosts the South African Award Winners Concert (SAAWC) at its International Convention Centre on 28 April 2018. On the bill for this rare, one-night-only music showcase are Vusi Nova, The Soil and Kwesta. The lineup will also feature some of the Award Winners from various South African Awards such as the Metro FM Music Awards, Channel O Music Awards, and the South African Traditional Music Awards, to name a few.
A first of its kind in the Nelson Mandela Bay, The South African Award Winners Concert (SAAWC) is organised by the National Lottery Fund in Association with Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism to honour and celebrate the achievements of local entertainment talent. The concert promises universal appeal to music lovers of all tastes, with artists performing songs from an array of genres, including House, RnB and Afro Soul.
“The Boardwalk is a proud supporter of local music and performing artists. We are excited to be part of bringing to fruition the first ever South African Award Winners Concert (SAAWC) in Port Elizabeth. While enjoying spectacular entertainment by high caliber artists, we can celebrate their accomplishments and inspire local artists to continue pursuing their music career ambitions,” says Martin Lodewijks at The Boardwalk.
With this event launch being the first of its kind, the Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism is excited about the prospects that the musicians will bring to the city and hope to gain momentum as the years progress. This initiative promises to be a part of the Nelson Mandela Bays calendar based on the city’s support.
Audiences should brace themselves for the main line up such as Eastern Cape’s very own, Vusi Nova, Afro Pop sensation The Soil and the King of African Rap, Kwesta. The concert goers will be hosted with an outer and inner circle area. The inner circle tickets will start from R220, while the outer circle tickets will start from R150. The venue has only 1400 tickets meaning this will be an exclusive event where the audience can enjoy the music without a mega crowd noise. Tickets are available at Computicket. Doors will open at 17h00 and the show will start at 18h00.
