Fak’ugesi Beats Lab, curated by Weheartbeat


Midwifed by the innovative and robust Tshimologong Precinct, the Fak’ugesi Beats Lab seeks to connect and cogitate our young creatives in a week-long  journey under the illustrious wing of Red Bull’s finest. Beginning on the 7th of September, music, technology and filmmaking are the focus; collaboration, co-creation and courage are key. Whatever comes of this incubation of passion and skill will see daylight at the final festival event, the Fak’ugesi Beats  Bloc Party.

Residents to be reckoned with include Swiss beat-maestro Melodinsfonie, French vinyl révolutionnaire Evil Needle, and UK sound siren Hannah Faith. Local collective Dear Ribane render the project complete with their bevy of dancers, vocalists and curators alike, all to be documented by JFC Worldwide’s wonder woman Foxy Neela.

Partners: Tshimologong Precinct, Red Bull, British Council ConnectZA , French Institute, Pro Helvetia
