Durban Jazz Festival 2012
// CATEGORY: live
So in December we had the amazing opportunity to be the company that filmed the 10th Durban Jazz festival for Amstel Lager in co-operation with our friends at Hilltop Live.
We sent 3 of our favorite camera men over to cover the event, and they came back with a million stories that we still enjoy listening to.
The event is a combination of Jazz musicians, friends and family gathering around with their braai’s, coolerboxes and gazebos ready to have a good time at the Durban Jazz Festival, at first they estimated a 30 000 sized crowd, though working thru the footage and hearing the stories we are convinced that this event gathered a successful 40 000 people and boy did they know how to have a good time!!
They line up for the day was filled with amazing artists from around South Africa and even a guest artist from the US, then as the sun started going down at the back of the stage, more exciting times starting rolling in as the event started building up towards the main show which was the Amstel Golden Hour, and the band of the hour was one of our new favorite local talents_The Soil together with featured artists.
We would love to share the video with you guys, but in the mean time here are some screenshots from what we captured.
