SA DJ’s to Play Belgium Tomorrowland 2014

Bridges for Music is a fantastic non-profit music-based organisation who have held numerous musical workshops in Cape Town including a session featuring Skrillex in Langa, Noisia and Richie Hawtin off the back of the CTEMF festivals.

They have now taken their work a step further by partnering with Tomorrowland! They have provided an opportunity to take two South African artists, DJ Siphe Tebeka and Lavish 189, to the Belgian festival in a weeks time.

Siphe TebekaThe artists in question are from Gugulethu and Langa townships, neither artist has played outside their home country, let alone at one of the largest dance festivals in Europe, so this a massive opportunity for both.

DJ Siphe Tebeka has been producing music since he was 18 years old, and has produced more than 800 tracks, of which are all unreleased. The opportunity to play at Tomorrowland will be both a life changing and groundbreaking one, providing the chance to not only build his career as a DJ but also to share his music with the world.

Lavish 189Lavish 189 is a DJ / producer from Cape Town’s Langa Township, who has recently risen above the somewhat flooded sea of South African deep house with the track “Trumpets Call” featuring legendary musicians David Nqayi and Simphiwe Mathole.

DJ Siphe Tebeka will perform on Friday 18th July at 5pm – 6pm, whilst Lavish 189 will perform on Friday 25th July at 5pm – 6pm; on the Dream Island stage respectively.

The DJ’s were carefully hand picked based on a number of attributes including skill, maturity, attitude and commitment.
There maybe a super talented individual who we don’t feel is ready to fully embrace and maximise the opportunity.  We want the experience to help them long term.  – Bridges for Music.
