Basha Uhuru Freedom Festival is back

Now in its sixth year, the 2018 edition of the Basha Uhuru is brought to you by Constitution Hill in partnership with, Nandos, the Department of Arts and Culture, Gauteng Tourism, Gauteng Film Commission and the Gauteng Enterprise Propeller. This year the three-day, annual festival takes place from Thursday 28 June until Saturday 30 June.

June 2018 marks 42 years since the 1976 Soweto uprisings. Through this flagship festival, Constitution Hill commemorates the youth of ’76 who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. Each year the festival showcases contemporary art, design, film and music. It is a celebration of young South African creatives and their artistic freedom of expression.

Constitution Hill is a National Heritage Site and provides a space for us to remember our past, understand our present and imagine our future. Like Basha Uhuru all programmes implemented at Constitution Hill aim to ensure that the constitution becomes a living, interactive and demonstrable shared experience.

Provoking and inspiring, Basha Uhuru, the highlight of Constitution Hill’s calendar has grown into one of the foremost urban, creative youth festivals in our country. At the heart of our philosophy and approach is the curating of unique experiences that bring young people together, while breaking new ground in the culture and the arts.

Ticket sales to the concert on 30 June open on 1 June 2018. Early bird tickets go on sale online on the Basha Uhuru website for R50. Tickets will also be on sale on the day through the Constitution Hill Box Office at R75. All other programmes are free but registration on the website is required for the Basha Bacha Creative Collisions programme which is open to creative entrepreneurs.
