There’s nothing that South Africans enjoy more than a day out in the sun and fresh air with great company, music, food and drinks. And what better way to celebrate the turn of seasons than with Joburg’s hottest annual music and lifestyle festival on the 5th of October at Casalinga in Muldersdrift. Returning for its second year, Prime Fest – hosted by Hot 91.9, Prime Circleand Real Concerts – is promising to be bigger and better with a powerhouse music line-up and a bevy of food, beverage and lifestyle stalls.
Having launched in 2018, Prime Circle have put together an “All Killer, No Filler” line-up with a royal flush of South African music giants including The Parlotones, Just Jinjer, Jack Parow, Freshlyground, Mango Groove, Wonderboom and Shut Up It’s Sunday.
“We are so excited for the second Prime Fest. Last year was an amazing experience where we learned a lot and now, we can add and make this year even better. We’ve put together an incredible line-up of artists who’ve had great success over the years and this will be first time we have all played on the same stage and look forward to some exciting collaborations,” comments Prime Circle frontman, Ross Learmonth.
Apart from the star-studded music line-up, this family-friendly festival combines an outdoor experience with a dedicated kids play area and a wide range of stalls.
Cooler boxes and picnic baskets are not permitted but there will be sufficient food stalls to fill your stomachs and a bar and beer garden to quench your thirst.

In between the music acts, why not sneak some alone time in at Just Haven’s Nomadic Spa in their billowing draped gazebos and enclosed fragrant treatment rooms for a 30-minute head, neck & shoulder massage or foot / hand massage for R100 or a 60-minute full body or back & neck massage for R200. There will also be a Vape Truck and InStep Jozi stall for you to browse through.
And what would a proudly South African music & lifestyle festival be without showing the love for a few of our local charity organisations including Woodrock Animal Rescue, Owl Rescue & Rehabilitation and RADA.
