Thousands of Jo’burgers gathered this past Saturday 30 September to party, eat, drink, dance and shop their way through Pure&Crafted SA, presented by BMW Motorrad.
From the moment gates opened at 11am, people streamed into the festival grounds to enjoy the daytime activities and the nighttime party vibe, which only ended at 1:30am. With everything from live motorcycle stunts and tattooing to and high G&T’s and two stages, there was plenty to see and do.
A packed 15-hour festival meant there were loads of highlights across music, motorcycles and new heritage, ensuring Pure&Crafted SA lived up to its promise of being a truly unique experience in Gauteng.
Across the Twin Cylinder and Vintage Stages, the highlights were certainly the festival’s two international headliners, Lost Frequencies and Nora en Pure. The crowds were loving their epic sets and even a little bit of rain didn’t dampen the electric energy. A strong local showing included big names like DJ Fresh, Timo ODV, Matthew Mole, Bye Beneco, The Rocketeers, Dean Fuel, Euphonik and many more.
Festival-goers, who were catered for by more than 20 food trucks, craft beers and special bars: The Pogues Whiskey Bar, Windhoek Bar and the Whitley Neill Gin Bar. A highlight – literally – was the Whitley Neill High G&T Ferris Wheel — a festival first! Windhoek made sure people got to enjoy 100% pure beer with 100% pure beef as they partnered with Balkan Burger to pair great burgers with the best beer and Wing Republic for the best wings.
