About the Kid
Recognized as a tastemaker, he has cemented his position as an important proponent of South African electronic music and club culture over the last 20 years. His rise in the music industry was bolstered when 2016 he landed a slot on 5FM.
Kid Fonque’s show has opened ears.”Radio is a very powerful medium in South Africa and the response to my show has surpassed all my expectations. The wide-ranging nature of my show has attracted an incredibly diverse audience – people I would never have been able to reach through my DJ sets, so the real motivation behind these events is to connect to the fans and give them the chance to experience the radio show in real life, in their own city at a great venue.”
“They’ll get to experience a Kid Fonque DJ set, soak up performances by incredible artists and connect with other like-minded music lovers. I couldn’t be more excited,” he adds The shows are in association with Ballantine’s.
