Johannesburg Arts Alive International Festival – Jazz on the Lake

The Joburg Arts Alive International Festival weekend will kick off with the Jazz on the Lake concert, the annual daytime concert that’s become known as Joburg’s unofficial  welcome to spring.
Set to take place on  Sunday, September 2nd from 11h00 – 18h00, the festival has maintained it’s proud 20 year tradition of offering quality, free entertainment to Joburg residents and visitors.

The performance line up for Jazz on the Lake consists of veteran crooner Vusi Mahlasela,  afro-diva Thandiswa Mazwai, the soulful Lira, and newcomers Maleh, Bokani Dyer and the Puisano Live.

The usual house-rules and logistics around the free show will be in effect this year – a  strict cordon of road closures will be placed around the  area, and a system of park and rides will be in place to ferry audiences to the venue.

The Park and Ride buses will be available from the following points:

1. Joburg Metro Building,  Braamfontein
2. Alexandra Football Stadium – Alexandra

Members of the public can catch the Rea Vaya bus service to the Metro Building in Braamfontein,  (Opposite Joburg Theatre) from where they can access the Park & Ride buses to Zoo Lake.

Without resident parking passes, members of the public will not be able to access the area by car. The road closures will be strictly enforced. Members of the public are encouraged to utilise the park and ride facilities in place.

As a family event, Jazz on the Lake enforces a strict no weapons, and no alcohol policy – there will be vendors and a beer garden on site  where beverages will be on sale.  Audiences are encouraged to come equipped with picnic baskets, camp-chairs and blankets for maximum comfort at the Zoo Lake lawns.
