Line Up For Lusito Land 2019!

Revelers attending this year’s Lusito Land Festival will be in for an amazing, edifying experience. The biggest cultural festival in South Africa promises to supersede all previous events, bringing bigger acts and more family-oriented entertainment.

The festival is scheduled to take place on 20 April to the April 22, and then from the 26 April to April 28, 2019.  It will include traditional Portuguese folk dancing, Portuguese community artists, dance schools and let’s not forget the amazing delectable cuisines.

Music lovers will be enthralled at this year’s line-up with a wide-ranging genre of artists set to take center stage.

Weekend one will feature:

  • Mi Casa
  • Mango Groove
  • Dr Victor & The Rasta Rebels
  • Rubber DUC
  • Jo Black
  • Bobby van Jaarsveld


This year we will also be offering a cutting edge 80’s rock show celebrating and paying tribute to the best alternative rock bands of the decade! The Hey Now, HEY NOW NOW band will take to the Lusito Land stage on XXX offering visitors a two- hour show of eighties alternative music, taking you back in time to your favourites.

Children can enjoy a two-hour show that features South Africa’s top 10 wrestlers on an international standard wrestling ring.  They can also be part of the fun by safely partaking in the sport, under the watchful eye of a ring master. An autograph session plus photos with the wrestlers will be available after the show.

“The Lusito Land Festival goes beyond having the best musical acts or giving visitors an authentic taste of Portuguese food and culture. It is an event that aims to raise awareness about differently abled people and make these people more visible to society at large,” says Spokesperson for the Lusito Association, Noemia Contente.

In true spirit of the cause there will be a fun 5km walk for the disabled, on Sunday, the 28th of April, starting at 8am, with an entry fee of R150, that also covers your entrance into the Festival.

“We will also have a fun fair with all sorts of exhilarating rides for all ages. Tickets will be sold separately at funfair ticket office,” Contente says.

For the animal loving guests, The Joy Dogs will be at Lusito Land, where the public can meet the talented canines and be entertained while they show off some of their tricks.

“We recently refurbished the Festival grounds and have planted luscious grass all over the venue to increase the comfort of our patrons. With this being our biggest event yet, you and your family do not want to miss out,” Contente concludes.
