The DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival first took the entertainment and culinary world by storm on its debut in Johannesburg in October 2013. Headlining the music was Jamiroquai supported by a host of top South African artists. UK celebrity chefs Aldo Zilli, Ed Baines and John Burton Race showcased their signature dishes at their own popup restaurants.
In May 2014 the DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival returned to Johannesburg, with UK TV chef Rachel Khoo joining her South African counterparts Jenny Morris and Siba Mtongana. The acts were jazz-funk pioneers the Brand New Heavies, club favourites Soul II Soul and acid jazz supremos Incognito.
Brand New Heavies and Soul II Soul were back in South Africa in December 2014 when the festival premiered in Cape Town. They were joined on the Cape Town stage by South African acts Freshlyground, Mi Casa and The Soil, along with modern folk artist Jeremy Loops. ‘MasterChef SA’ judge Pete Goffe-Wood and acclaimed chef Garth Stroebel tantalised visitors’ taste-buds.
Queen of funk Chaka Khan, global dance legend Louie Vega, Drizabone and Shakatak were the headline acts in June 2015, playing to a capacity crowd of 20000 people in Johannesburg.
This event also featured Johannesburg’s biggest gourmet food market. The popular Delicious pop up restaurant was hosted by ‘MasterChef SA’ Judge Pete Goffe-Wood. Food Network celebrity chefs Reza Mahammad, Siba Mtongana and Jenny Morris hosted live food demonstrations and cook offs at the Food Network Pavilion.
It is South Africa’s biggest food and music extravaganza and promises to be the not-to-be-missed event on what remains of the 2016 events calendar.
