About Us

WeekendSpecial is an Arts and Lifestyle website that focuses on theatre, music, comedy, film, travel, tech and more. Why? Because Arts Matter. Because we’re pretty damn passionate about the stuff we watch, read, listen to and interact with. And because we want to share all that good stuff with you.

We’re a team of professional writers who’ve been in both the offline and online business for a while, and we love what we do. So we’re going to make sure we have up-to-date listings for you to check out what is happening, we’re going to speak to the hottest names in the biz so you know what they’re thinking, and we’re going to smack some serious opinion pieces down, because we think our visitors are up for this.

Most importantly – we’re all about South African arts and artists. That’s what makes this website tick.

Oh, and if you want to contribute, or have a great idea to share with us, or want to write about your latest expedition to the Kgalagadi or that crazy Cassper Nyovest concert you went to or how you feel about the new Jack Parow album – drop us a line at editorial@weekendspecial.co.za

We’re always looking for fresh new voices and fun ideas.
