Lockdown Legends Online Event: From 28 June 2020

South Africans in SA and around the world are called on to support (and enjoy!) the ‘Lockdown Legends online event, an initiative that’s raising funds for the South African music industry by members of the industry. Due to the devastating impact of Covid-19, artists and music industry professionals have been denied any source of income. This will help.

This event will be hosted on the www.covid-zero.co.za platform and features appearances and performances by many of the legendary SA artists & DJs of the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s and now, many of whom have reformed or have given their time and talent to perform exclusively for this event. (See the full list below.)

The event also includes tributes to some of South Africa’s lost legends by more recent artists from the 2000’s.


The organisers say: “Join us, as we look back and celebrate with the talents of SA’s retro ‘best of the best’, where they will perform online magic for all the world to see and hear from the comfort and safety of your home.

“Hear the music and the stories that defined generation after generation – and reconnect with the music that defined you.”

75% of the proceeds will be channeled directly to the music professionals that have worked on this project and 25% to other music industry professionals.

28th June 2020 from 8.15pm | Donation only R100 gets you full access
