AKA and Riky Rick pulling out of the concert doesn’t seem to be taking anything away from the momentum of Back to the City because things just seem to be getting better and better in the 10th year anniversary of the festival.
Yup, as arb as the headline might sound, it’s true. Not only is (almost) every name in the local hip hop umbrella going to grace the Back to the City stage this year, the festival is offering helicopter rides for the meagre price of R320. All you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org and you could be afforded the opportunity to soar the inner city skyline on Freedom Day. If you’ve ever witnessed the production of the show (never mind the regular attributes of the city at night), it will be quite the spectacle.
