Are you looking for a vibrant and cultural experience in Johannesburg? Look no further than the Market at the ShedsKofifi Festival happening on 4 May 2024! Step into the world of Kofifi Style, a movement born in the heart of Sophiatown during the 1940s and 50s. This iconic movement combines daring fashion and pulsating music, embodying a resilient cultural identity that stood boldly against oppression.

Imagine a scene where sharply dressed men and women in tailored suits and flared dresses tap their polished shoes to groundbreaking rhythms of Miriam Makeba and Hugh Masekela. Inspired by the stylish vintage 1950s, Kofifi Style is more than just fashion – it was an act of defiance. Sophiatown‘s musicians and fashion icons crafted a legacy of resistance and dignity, leaving an indelible mark on South African culture.

Get ready for a day filled with music, dance, fashion, food, and art at Market at the ShedsKofifi Festival. Enjoy live performances by Freddie Gwala, Maureen and the Blaq Peppers, Ntlaks and the Tribute Band, and Kofifi & Kitchen House DJs. Don’t miss out on the local designer fashion show and the Best Dressed Kofifi Award!
