The investment Weheartbeat has made in local culture has afforded many fans the opportunity to watch international artists in spaces they never imagined possible, while local musicians and DJs have shared these platforms with their idols. In celebration of these incomparable experiences and achievements over the last 7 years, Weheartbeat is set to present one of their most exciting events thus far. While the official anniversary falls on 31 May 2019, the celebrations will be spread across multiple venues over 3 days from 30 May to 2 June 2019. The event series will combine live music, design, exhibitions and workshops in line with Weheartbeat’s passion for the union of creative energy.
Drawing focus on the harmony between music, design and community the main event will take place at Arts on Main to present a night market that will feature a dedicated photography exhibition curated by Hannah Faith and a Weheartbeat photographic and video installation by Riley Grant.
Each space occupied throughout the event series will reflect the passion, commitment and investment made by Weheartbeat within this music community and will serve as a celebration of the collective's incredible contribution.

Its as if this shoot was done yesterday! And it was just the other day we heard Nipsey Hussle doing a documentary on the recent cure for HIV by Dr. Sebi and all the amazing work he was doing for his community.
Today we wake up to the news that the rapper was shot in front of one of his stores taking pictures with his fans.
“You were serving the community and vibrating higher and higher best you knew how.
You can help even more: now
May you do all of the high vibrational things you couldnt do in this life from where you now are, in the next one.
God be with your loved ones and their heavy hearts”
- Lalah Delia
it is so heart warming to see our home grown artists flying the flag high at that the 2019 Brooklyn Afropunk Concert!
This is the inspirational story of six musicians from across Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa - Teni the Entertainer and Simi in Nigeria, Sho Madjozi, Lady Zamar and Shekhinah in South Africa, and Muthoni Drummer Queen in Kenya. Famous as singers, songwriters and performers, they are also businesswomen, mentors and sound engineers. Their journeys show that to succeed in any industry - the skills of leadership, entrepreneurship and digital literacy are universally important. By sharing how they overcome challenges and empower themselves to succeed, the artists hope to inspire the next generation of women, that with the right skills, they can be who they want to be. Google Africa’s skills training program includes talks, workshops and communities dedicated to women.
New Year , New Store look!
The changes made to the store were based on the evolution of the brand over the years and the love for different materials.
The idea behind the redesign was the mixture of different materials like, concrete, wood, brass, steel and the final touches of plants that symbolize life and growth within the store.
Art is another component we wish to include in the new store. This is our first art piece from Setlamorago Mashilo.
The crocodile leaves its iconic spot
The well known polo t-shirt brand has created a new range of tee’s in the aid of helping the IUCN and Lacoste in the fight for wildlife conservation worldwide.
The limited-edition polo collection where threatened species hold the crocodile’s spot.
The number of polos produced for each series corresponds to the remaining population sizes in the wild.
On the streets, the people have passed comments like "oho, do you think uMandla wa se lokshin will care what this range is about. Because to him he knows the brand to only use one animal”, lol.
