The fun packed event of assorted activities pulling audiences from all over Southern Africa, takes place each year at the Ficksburg Show Grounds, in the Free State Province, South Africa. Lesotho music gurus such as Tšepo Tšola, Bhudaza Mapefane and Senqu Jazz Band are among life time achievers listed to mesmerise audiences from the host South Africa (SA) and neighbouring countries such as Lesotho, Botswana, Eswatini, Namibia and Zimbabwe.
The artistes are billed to share the stage with SA’s musical giants included the celebrated Zahara, Vusi Nova, Mlindo, Nala Jazz Band, Ronnie Mokoena and many more. Disc spinners like DJ Tira from Durban, DJ Finzo of Lesedi FM, Bhuda from Setsoto FM and Sir Que will also keep the revelers on their toes throughout the time. “It can’t be argued that the Cherry Jazz Festival is the mother of all festivals in the Free State, hence is the biggest event wrapping up the year.
