The 15th annual Soweto Beer Festival, conceptualised by Godfrey Mautloa, owner of the popular Masakeng Restaurant and Bar in Mofolo, in partnership with CAN DO!, Nampak Bevcan’s consumer facing brand, has enjoyed overwhelming success and growth since its inception in 1999.
This once small in-house event has evolved into the biggest social event in Soweto. The four day can-only event aims to generate appreciation for South African beverage products, promote local music, grow Soweto as a major tourist attraction and encourage responsible safe drinking in our vibrant Gauteng townships.
“The festival brings together great Sowetan cuisine including, pap & vleis, kotas and magwinya, live entertainment and the opportunity to taste locally brewed umqombothi and over 40 beer brands from around the world,” says Mautloa.
By embodying the vibrant life of South Africa’s next generation, The CAN DO! brand together with the Soweto Beer Festival has become a big part of Kasi-culture and aims to motivate the youth to adopt a CAN DO! attitude to their hopes and dreams by showing that anything is possible.
“CAN DO! has become more than a beverage can brand, it is now a movement created around the cool, fresh, enthusiastic, responsible youth of South Africa who make smart choices about the environment, which is why the Soweto Beer Festival is such a perfect fit,” says Alexandra Bouwer, Marketing Manager for Nampak Bevcan’s CAN DO! brand.
The festival will take place from Friday, 25 October 2013 to Monday, 28 October 2013 from 14:00 until late every day at SHAP Stadium in Mofolo Park, Soweto. Tickets are R30 per person and can be bought at the gate.
