The Hugh Masekela Heritage Festival is a reflection of Hugh Masekela’s eclectic musical appetite and output, through the lens of South Africa’s own abundant and diverse musical offerings.

This fifth instalment is a significant and important juncture in the life of the festival.
The first since Bra Hugh’s passing, held in what would have been his 80th year, as well as debuting at the historical Soweto Theatre, the festival continues to evolve as a magnet for diverse South African performers and audiences.

As passion project of the world-renowned trumpeter and heritage activist, the festival is envisioned as a platform to grow and promote heritage and culture to and through a cross-generational, cross-cultural audience with a stage that represents ALL the diversity of South Africa, the continent, indeed, the globe; with a family ambiance full of heritage and culture.
