Brace yourself for the first edition Brochella


Great news music fans! The first annual Brochella Festival will be taking place at Rumours Rock City in Johannesburg on Saturday the 15th of April 2017. Brochellaholics will be treated to a full day of top acts that will bring a truckload of rocking good times to the long weekend.

What started off as a joke over some fine craft beer at Rumours Rock City became a reality when Fred Otto, owner of the venue, said it could be hosted there. Inspired by a world-famous festival for its namesake, Brochella‘s line up was shaped by one Facebook post, a few negotiations and loads of laughs via Whatsapp. The bands that will be performing on the day are Faz And The Firecrackers, Friends Like Thieves, The Just, The Cosmic Strange, The Ceramics, Jasper Dan, State Society, ShutUp! It’s Sunday, I AM and Lonehill Estate. The line up showcases the best up and coming acts alongside seasoned performers that know how to get a party started.

Brocheallaholics will rage hard for an entire day on Saturday 15 April at Rumours Rock City. The first act kicks off at 3PM with the final act closing the festival at midnight. Rumours Rock City will be transformed for the day into a landscape of hipster delights, delicious grub and the best damn music.
