Lineup and Details for SOUNDS OF AFRICA on Sat 16th June 2012
GOLDFISH (live), JESSE CLEGG (live) & DJ KENT are just a small part of the diverse lineup for the 2012 event in London. Each artist represents their unique sound, covering various genre's from Rock, Pop, Electronica and Jazz on the main stage to Deep House, Electro & Techno in room 2. If sound is not enough for you, be visually blown away by the LED backdrop, fire explosions, Ibiza's famous ice and confetti cannons + a surprise guest appearance only to be revealed on the night.
Sounds of Africa are bringing you the "wow" factor, a concert that London fans will be talking about for weeks before and years after!
The Coronet Theatre opened its doors over 100 years ago and to this day has managed to retain all of its art deco features. Originally conceived as a public hall, it appeared as Theatre Royal in 1872 but a fire in 1878 lead to renovations. One year later The Elephant and Castle Theatre opened its doors to the public and a very young Charlie Chaplin soon graced the stage. Nowadays the Coronet Theatre plays host to some of London's most iconic concerts and is the perfect setting for the Sounds Of Africa concert holding a capacity of over 3000 people.

The Fish are confirmed as this years main headliner for the Sounds of Africa concert in London and it is no wonder that this electronic duo from the Southern-most tip of Africa have taken the world by storm. Not only are Goldfish signed to Sony South Africa but more recently also signed to industry pioneers EMI Records and after this years performance in Miami at the WMC and with tour dates in Dubai, Amsterdam, Qatar & Ibiza - we are super excited to have the boys on board!
JESSE CLEGG (LIVE)
Jesse Clegg is the son of one of South Africas most prolific and highly regarded musicians, Johnny Clegg. In the space of two short years, he has streaked into the top of the radio charts and into the hearts of all South African music fans. The vehicle for this has been the 22-year-olds debut album, When I Wake Up which was released in 2008 and has, so far, produced an enviable five radio singles and is heading for platinum status. Experience the whole Jesse Clegg experience with his 4 piece band LIVE at the Sounds Of Africa.
DJ Kent is the epitome of cool, calm and collected that is, until he hits the decks and works club crowds around the world into a frenzy. Kent has established himself as one of the top producers in South Africa after his productions and expertise has been featured in over 50% of South Africas biggest compilations since 2005 & with the release of his solo debut in 2008, gained him the 2008/2009 SAMA award for best urban dance album. Kent is destined to storm the charts, destroy dance floors and calm hoards of hungry fans and it is for this reason that he is one of the main headliners for the Sounds of Africa concert in London.
