The Black Cellar Club (BLACC) is hosting its first premium wine and spirits festival in November 2018 dubbed BLACC Fest X Langa.
Cape Town’s Langa township was chosen for the historic occasion, with the Guga S’thebe Arts & Culture Centre making for the ideal address.
Street food will be by Jordan’s Way of Cooking and Boulevard 82. Festive beats will be provided by the Abavuki Marimba Band, DJ Fosta and DJ Sebs.

Says Aubrey Ngcungama, co-founder of the Black Cellar Club, which was founded in 2016 by luxury brand representation company Vula Afrika, “The essence of BLACC is to bring South African wines to the greater population of African people who have yet to fully embrace the wine industry, while also encouraging the wine industry to embrace this influential demographic. Through the club’s sommeliers and wine stewards, hospitality workforce and influencers, BLACC has journeyed two short years to become known in the country’s corporate boardrooms and beyond”.
A lively boutique affair, BLACC Fest X Langa will be the debut festival, paving the way for future occasions throughout South Africa. BLACC’s dream is to bring the wines of South Africa to the main market; to celebrate excellence and ensure a bright future for the country’s wine and spirits industry.
“BLACC Fest X Langa will be an opportunity to highlight township tourism and the local economy”, comments Helen Zille, Premier of the Western Cape Province. Adds, the Western Cape’s Minister of Economic Opportunities Alan Winde, “Block out your diary now for BLACC Fest X Langa! This promises to be a festival to remember with amazing wine, food and music.”
