The Container Yard in Johannesburg’s City Deep will once again be turned into the hottest party venue this April 2020 as Mzansi’s boldest music and lifestyle festival makes a comeback with an unmissable line-up featuring the likes of Nasty C, Samthing Soweto, Nadia Nakai and the Scorpion Kings to set the VIVOnation 2020 main stage on fire!

This year, Volkswagen South Africa’s VIVOnation’s two-day music and lifestyle festival promises to be bigger than before with an exciting line-up, a trendy VIVO Bula Boot market, three additional stages, a unique driving experience around the VIVO Track and a vibrant mix of food, fashion and fun.

VIVOnation’s line-up will be showcasing some of SA’s top musicians like Nadia Nakai, Lady Zamar and Nasty C on Saturday April first leg of the festival in celebration of freedom, fun and the fresh sounds. To add more flavour to the line-up, Busiswa, Shekhinah, DJ Maphorisa, Samthing Soweto and Kabza De Small will turn the Sunday into something of an essential date for lovers of Mzansi’s versatile sounds. According to Martina Biene, Head of the Volkswagen Brand, music has always been an intrinsic bedrock for the South African society.

“Music has always been South Africa’s 12th official language and continues to play an important role in shaping Mzansi’s pop-culture. VIVOnation 2020 promises to be more than just a music festival but a movement that brings South Africans together – going to the culture and celebrating the creatives, makers, game-changers and pioneers who are the freedom seekers and embody what it means to live Uncontained.”

“This year’s installation will be a one of a kind creative festival that brings different artists, multiple stages and unique experiences to VIVOnation,”

Such unique experiences will see three of Gauteng’s most sought-after pop-up social events, Until Until, HomeComing and WeHeartBeat bring the boldness behind one of the country’s most unique festivals and use it to showcase what it means to be #UNcontained.
