Transport And Parking Info For Arts Alive Jazz On The Lake Concert

The Johannesburg Arts Alive International Festival will kick off with the Jazz on the Lake concert, the annual daytime concert that’s become known as Joburg’s unofficial welcome to spring. Set to take place on Sunday, August 31 from 11:00 to 17:30, the festival has maintained its proud 22 year tradition of offering quality, free entertainment to Joburg residents and visitors.

The performance line up for Jazz on the Lake consists of the iconic, Johnny Clegg who is joined by jazz specialist, Mbuso Khoza; acapella trio, The Soil; Afro soul crooner, Vusi Nova and Limpopo reggae star, Colbert Mukwevho. International acts include Afro jazz muso Josh Meck from Zimbabwe; Remna Schwarz (Cape Verde) and Vidya Shah (India).

The usual house-rules and logistics around the free show will be in effect this year – a strict cordon of road closures will be placed around the area and a system of park and rides will be in place to ferry audiences to the venue. An initiative that will bring much relief to Jazz on the Lake audiences is the inclusion of the e-Tuk-Tuks, which will relieve those who’ve chosen to walk, by ferrying them to the venue within the cordoned off area. 

The Park and Ride buses will be available from the following points:

1.                  Joburg Metro Building, Braamfontein
2.                  Alexandra Football Stadium – Alexandra

The Park and Ride Service will run from 9h00 until 21h00– frequency of the runs as follows:

·                     From 9h00 – 13h00 – every half hour

·                     From 17h30 – 20h00 – every half hour.

Members of the public can catch the Rea Vaya bus service to the Metro Building in Braamfontein,   (Opposite Joburg Theatre) from where they can access the Park & Ride buses to Zoo Lake.   

Without resident parking passes, members of the public will not be able to access the area by car. The road closures will be strictly enforced. Members of the public are encouraged to utilise the park and ride facilities in place.

As a family event, Jazz on the Lake enforces a strict no weapons, and no alcohol policy – there will be vendors and a beer garden on site where beverages will be on sale.  Audiences are encouraged to come equipped with picnic baskets, camp-chairs and blankets for maximum comfort at the Zoo Lake lawns.
