I think the show was great in terms of the line up. Can you please stop this thing of opening gate at 10h00 but start the festival at 18h00. It doesn't make any sense. There more you take long to star...t is the more we are getting wet by rain. We don't want stay the whole night at stadium but we want to see all artists. To stay there 6 hours without any performance is not necessary See More

Buyelekhaya is one of the biggest concerts in SA I've bin attending it fr 8yrs now bt the organisers fail to acknowledge the fact that it's always raining and should try en have a backup plan of a ten...t.your new security rule of not allowing people to get inside again after going out/exiting for different reason whether to give people outside tickets almost ruined everything.lastly the issue of being lied to about the availability of artists cz we we're told Distruction are looking fr a way to get in then you waited until 4am to tell us they and Tira won't be coming telling us a stupid story.hopefully next year you'll have proper answers to every problem.we had fun though..

The searching group at entry were not vigilant. The entry had few staff for the amount of people coming into the festival. Toilets facilities were not enough for the amount of people.

I think that the organiser should have thought about big open tents considering the weather@ least just to make the show comfortable for every one, we were there in big numbers regardless of the but please next time consider the weather focus See More

Good Day Buyelekhaya Management!

Firstly, I would like to personally congratulate you on reaching the 8th edition of this auspicious festival. Well done to you, your sponsors (partners) and us as yo...ur supporters for ensuring success of this great event.

Your compromise and reconsideration of the Cans Policy is also highly appreciated and shows that you listen to the pleas of your target market, hoping that we as fans are going to safety measures as we have pressured you to allow us to have canned beverages inside the stadium.

The other major complaint by supporters is around the line-up of artists for this year. I'm not going into deep details around as this will reflect negatively on some of your contracted artist's reputation. But I would love to suggest that going forward you must create an sms line wherein people will send the names of SA artists they want to hear in your festival. Think about on the business side of things as well increasing number of supporters to the festival.

Otherwise thanks for providing us with entertainment during the festive time. I thank you.

The line- up wasn't soo good ...not sure if its the way it was arranged i.e. the time of their performances ... but its not what we wanted ...I'm not gonna dwell much but please try and minimize the n...umber of local artists & their performances /time ... They performed half of the night it was boring as if we were attending their concerts ���

As for Babes Wodumo Turn-off never again I attend Buyelekhaya if she's on the line-up !!

Last year's Buyelekhaya was way better despite the weather ...
