3. The Brickfields festival, 24.11, Carfax Newtown. Best examples of South-African music scene: from ShortStraw to Spoek Mathambo. Perfect start of the summer season.

4. Monster Ball by Secret Circle, 24.11, 66 Carr Street. Semi-underground party in the middle of town. It is inspired by Lady Gaga — related outfits are appreciated. Special guest — Ally Ooop, Gaga of South-African production and the star of Die Antwoord’s music video.

5. Claim your city, 25.11, Ernest Oppenheimer park. Live music, art and nice crowd in the heart of Joburg’s CBD.
