Essence Festival Durban 2016

Essence Festival Durban

It has been a long time coming and it finally arrived, the Essence Festival in Durban! I was very excited to hear that this popular US festival was making its way to our shores. You see, Durban and New Orleans are sister cities – I am guessing that is why the festival made its way to the east coast of South Africa. I attended the festival on Friday 11 November – I was unfortunately out of town for the weekend. Next year, I will make sure to be in town for the duration of the festival. 

I was vlogging more than I was taking photos 🙁 so I don’t have a lot of pictures. However, I hope that the 2 vlogs will make up for it. Enjoy! Please subscribe to my Youtube channel so that my videos will appear on your newsfeed and you will not miss a video.

    Glad you posted this on your blog Lungi. Although I’ve subscribed I can’t comment on you tube (long story). Loved the vlogs. I’m a bit jealous you got to go. Plus Solomzi’s(though not a fan) advice was on point.
