The local music festival aims to promote a sense of unity, hope and love this holiday season when it takes centre stage with a star-studded lineup at Green Market Square in the Cape Town CBD on Saturday 17 December 2022.

Musicians who are set to dazzle audiences on the day include Emo Adams, Mafikizolo, Salome, Youngsta CPT, Loukmaan Adams, Robin Pieters as well as Jarrad Ricketts. Additional artists will be revealed in the coming weeks.

‘Last year we were restricted in terms of capacity due to Covid-19 compliance. 2022 will definitely be bigger and better as well as we will be focusing on a variety of acts which will cater to the entertainment needs of everyone. This year we will also dedicate a segment of the festival and acknowledge our Golden Oldies who have paved the way for many successful artists today. Artists in this segment will include Terry Fortune, Leslie Kleinsmith and Omar Adams,’ says event organizer Shaakirah Adams.

‘We will also include our emerging talent and provide the youth with a platform to showcase their talent. We have also included DJs such as NV Funk, so people can groove themselves into the beginning of the festive season,’ says Adams, adding that this year’s festival will be more diverse.

‘The City of Cape Town is thrilled to be partnering with local artists once again for Unity on the Square. The first edition in 2021 might have been restricted by Covid-19, but we it laid the perfect foundation for the event’s growth going forward and we believe it has the potential to be a catalyst for the local entertainment industry, says Alderman Jean-Pierre Smith

Unity On The Square is the brainchild of renowned musician and entertainer, Loukman Adams and his business partner and wife, Shaakirah Adams, and acts as the flagship event for Loukman Adams Productions, formed during the pandemic.

The event will also host a number of markets and vendors throughout the day including Halaal foods= trucks, local traders, a coffee bar, mobile data giveaways as well as event and artist merchandise for sale.

‘We have survived a pandemic. Artists require support as well as our vendors who will have the ability to trade on concert day. The concert is aimed at job creation and with the audience support it will positively impact the livelihood of the communities involved as well as the artists on the bill. This grand concert is definitely not to be missed,’ says Adams.
