Calabash South Africa 2024: The Ultimate Musical Spectacle Beckons!
South Africa – October 25, 2023 - Prepare to be swept away by the grand symphony of sounds because Big Concerts has just unveiled South Africa's ultimate international music festival – Calabash South Africa! Get ready to witness the world's top artists like never before on the grandest stages of them all: DHL Stadium in Cape Town and FNB Stadium in Johannesburg. In early 2024, this flagship festival will be set ablaze by none other than the chart-topping Grammy Award-winning pop-rock legends, Maroon 5. But that's just the beginning; the lineup boasts other musical luminaries including Keane, Meduza, Ava Max, Will Linley, and Lloyiso.
With the electrifying and distinctive vocals of Adam Levine, Maroon 5 has graced the airwaves with chart-topping hits that include "Moves like Jagger," "Sugar," "Payphone," and "Girls Like You." Honored with three prestigious Grammy Awards, this band has garnered an unwavering global fan base.
Hailing from Battle, East Sussex, the British sensation, Keane, known for their piano-driven pop-rock sound, will add their magic to the festival. Gaining recognition in the early 2000s with their debut album "Hopes and Fears," Keane will mark the 20th anniversary of this iconic release in 2024, featuring hit singles like "Somewhere Only We Know" and "Everybody's Changing." Despite a hiatus post their 2013 album "The Best of Keane," their introspective lyrics and captivating melodies continue to resonate in the world of music.
In just two short years, Meduza has ascended to become the most significant global streaming Italian artist in the history of Italy's music. Their debut release, "Piece of Your Heart" featuring Goodboys, has amassed over 2 billion streams worldwide and secured a place in the top 10 of official charts in 20 countries. Meduza continues to set the benchmark for dance music globally.
Ava Max, the chart-topping pop sensation, promises to set the stage on fire at Calabash South Africa. Known for her electric performances and powerhouse vocals, Ava Max has enthralled audiences worldwide with her infectious energy and dynamic stage presence. With hits like "Sweet but Psycho" and "Kings & Queens," she has cemented her position as a global pop icon, and her performance at Calabash is expected to be nothing short of spectacular.
The lineup also features South Africa-born singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Will Linley, who weaves raw emotion with melodic sweetness, lamenting the woes of heartbreak with unforgettable hooks delivered with unfiltered candor.
And last but by no means least, Lloyiso, the acclaimed South African musician and SAMA nominee, who has firmly established himself as a rising star within the country's vibrant music scene. With his soulful voice and heartfelt lyrics, Lloyiso has captivated audiences worldwide, earning him a dedicated fan base and critical acclaim. Pushing boundaries and redefining the possibilities of his craft, Lloyiso has solidified his position as a true musical force, dedicated to both artistic integrity and creative innovation.
