Bringing comedy firsts to the #ToyotaLive DRUMBeat

This year, for the first time, people can enjoy amazing comedians on the newly added comedy stage at the #ToyotaLive Drum Beat, taking place on the 26 August 2017 at its new venue, Carnival City Lawns and Sun Park in Ekurhuleni.
It’s the first time in seven years since the event has been established that comedy will be added, and this at no extra cost to concert goers. The comedy stage which forms part of the main entertainment area, will go live as soon as gates open, with a mix of open mic beginners and celebrity acts such as Ronnie Modimola, Kedibone Mulaudzi and Khanyisa Bunu.
