According to Santie Roux, spokesperson for BIN, farmers in the drought-affected areas of the Free State, North West, Limpopo, certain areas of KwaZulu-Natal, as well as the Northern Cape, Eastern Cape and Western Cape, have been particularly hard hit.

These concerts create an ideal opportunity to raise funds and show support for the country’s producers, while also informing the public about the enormity of the crisis, she says.

Some of the country’s top musicians will be performing, and the line-up will be:
