The full lineup for this year’s St Louis Fresh Festival to be held at the Gaborone Club on Saturday has been released. Already Black Coffee’s presence has proven to be the most exciting, when he streams live his hit song, We Dance Again.

Attendants will also get the chance to compete on stage in a dance challenge of the same title track.

This was revealed exclusively to Showbiz yesterday by the KBL brand marketing manager, Mpho Motlhabane.

International acts accompanying the hitmaker will be an artist who just made history by filling up the dome in South Africa, Cassper Nyovest, boyband Uhuru, and Busiswa.

Local lineup will include heavyweights such as Dramaboi, ATI, Sasa Klass, Zeus, Samantha Mogwe, Vee and MMP Family.

The festival previously named Summer Fest returns after a year’s hiatus subsequent to hosting American artist Brandy. 

Black Coffee is said to perform on stage from 2pm to 3pm.  This is a way of the newly branded drink to promote an afternoon event.

“This is a time to have the St Louis experience.  We want attendants to come and enjoy the brand experience as well as participate in the games.  This is not a night festival,” emphasised Motlhabane.

“Hence one of the main acts, Black Coffee, will be on stage in the afternoon at around 2pm,” she said.

Black Coffee’s We Dance Again from his latest album, Pieces Of Me, caused a stir on social media when it was first introduced.  Celebrities and socialites took to Twitter for the dance Challenge.

The song was an instant Internet sensation and has also sparked interest in the local market ahead of the Saturday event.
