The organisers say Jammin 'n Ting is not about what kind of art, but what's behind it. This Easter weekend, you can expect a four-day festival filled with Africa-rooted music, culture and art that is grown with direct involvement of the audience, created by the people of the Naledi Cultural Village. The events will include film screenings, live acts, poets and bands.

Headlined this year by Impande Core, DJ Kongisto and Pitso Rah Makhula, the event promises a diverse line-up of DJs and musicians.

There will also be site seeing, workshops and exhibition stalls, and those who arrive early to the festival can help with the final touches.

The event does not generate a profit, and wants to provide artists the opportunity to grow while developing a culture of sharing and awareness about social ills.

Look out for the new rondavels built by women from the Naledi Cultural Village with comfortable dormitory accommodation. Otherwise you can camp, or stay at one of the guest lodges close to the venue.

Tickets are R200 including camping presale, or R350 at the gate for weekend passes.

WHEN: April 18 to April 21
WHERE: Naledi Cultural Village, Free State
