Episode 1 - How To Get Gigs

Approaching promoters and venue owners is hard, especially if you've just started out. I spoke to people who know more about this than me, namely:

- Venita Engelbrecht, who started playing gigs when she was a child
- Veranda Panda, an electronic music duo from Durban
- Khathu Musekwa, co-owner of Swade Shift - an events and promotion company
- Kyle Cancella, DJ, Producer and staple of the local electronic music industry
- Soné and Stiaan from Fort Hey - also an events and promotion company

- Klaas vd Walt from Uncle Mothers
- Ofentse Seriti, Muzi Gwala and Blhack Aerian from Afro Prog Sessions
- Bonolo Matlala from TuksFM
