One of the event organisers, Jordan Dube, said they had included local artistes to give the show a local touch as well as give the artistes exposure on a stage featuring the yet-to-be-named renowned headlining acts.

“Preparations for the event are going well and so far we have released the names of some of the local artistes and DJs that are going to share the stage with the main acts that are going to headline the Bulawayo Shutdown gig.

“The names of these major acts will be released once we have finalised with them. We have decided to include the local artistes so as to give the show a local touch as well as to give them (artistes) some exposure,” said Dube.

He said they started preparing for the gig in January in order to try and improve the standards and also for Bulawayo to have an unforgettable experience.
