The music festival Unity On The Square 2023 will take place on Saturday 16 December 2023 on Greenmarket Square, in the Cape Town city centre.
The popular Mother City festive season event returns for a third time, with an artist line-up of the “who’s who in South African music”.
On the bill for Unity on the Square 2023 are Kurt Darren, Jack Parrow (pictured below), Emo Adams, Jimmy Nevis, Loukmaan Adams, YoungstaCPT, NV Funk (pictured above), Paxton Fielies and Guitar Cartel Ft Cameron Ward, Keanu Harker, Timothy Hehrenreic, Jodi Jantjies, Julius Mey and Brent Cruz.
Since its inception, food and locally produced items have been a big part of the event’s success and this year is no different. A variety of flavours will be available from festival food stalls, while special, handmade items created by skilled artisans and sellers from Guga S’Thebe Cultural Centre will include jewellery, leather goods, and artworks.
Family friendly event
This family friendly festival will also host a KIDDIEZ zone – which will be jam-packed with exciting activities to keep your kids in attendance entertained. To ensure the safety of even the young attendees, organisers have partnered with the non-profit Pink Ladies organisation for the event as an additional security measure.
“We’ve curated an even more diverse lineup of cultural performances and activities, displaying a broader range of talent. Our food offerings have elevated, with an even greater selection of cuisines and treats to satisfy every palate. This year, we are putting even more emphasis on family-friendly activities, ensuring that everyone, from the youngest to the oldest, can enjoy the festival to the fullest. The entertainment lineup promises to be bigger and better, with a stellar cast of musicians, dancers, and performers to keep the energy high throughout the event,” says event organizer Shaakirah Adams, wife of performer Loukmaan Adams.
