They say all good things come to an end, right? Freshlyground is one example of a good thing coming to an end…for now.
Don’t miss out on Freshlyground’s Farewell Club Gig where we all say goodbye to the band but excitedly wait for Zolani to launch her new career as a solo artist. We’re glad some good can come from the announcement.
Freshlyground planned this gig for their fans so they can thank them for the incredible support they have shown the band over the last 17 years all the way back when they won the Emerging Sounds Competition in 2002.
At the gig you can expect other artists like Sky Dladla and Chris Bakalanga joining Freshlyground at their last show.
