Port Elizabeth - The cream of the crop of South Africa’s music industry will entertain music lovers and fans of local sounds at the Nelson Mandela Bay (NMB) Stadium this December, the stadium announced.

The music spoils are set to kick off with the inaugural Bay Summer Fest music concert containing a line-up of local and national artists, taking place on Sunday 22 December from 12 midday until late.

Tickets range between R150 – R295.

“The Bay Summer Fest concert provides a great opportunity for five of some of the best local artists to showcase their talent to a larger audience and exposes them to a wider market as the Metro is abuzz with holidaymakers during this time,” said Phumulani Hlatshwayo, NMB Stadium’s Head of Commercial.
