With a commitment to creating unforgettable moments, the festival has firmly established itself as an indispensable gathering for both locals and visitors, promising an exceptionally immersive and transformative journey.
Taking place at the Legends Adventure Farm in Pretoria, the weekend-long fiesta kicked off on Friday, featuring a stellar lineup of local legends and international heavyweights. Kendrick Lamar’s awe-inspiring performance on Saturday night marked a high point of the festival.

Local talents, including Mafikizolo, Toss Zakes Bantwini, Shekinah, Black Motion, DJ Zinhle, Mörda, and Kelvin Momo, left the audience yearning for more with their outstanding performances.
In summary, the Hey Neighbour Festival proved to be a resounding success, leaving attendees thoroughly entertained and eagerly anticipating more.
