There is no better band to headline the first Delicious International Food and Music Festival than Jamiroquai. With their signature mix of funk, jazz, disco and house and the combination of beautiful sunshine, delicious food and wine, there will be no better vibe to be had in Johannesburg this year.
The three international pop up restaurants, San Carlo Cicchetti, Randall & Aubin and The John Burton Race Experience will provide patrons with the opportunity to experience their fine cuisine first hand while enjoying the music from a raised position overlooking the crowd. These restaurants will take bookings for lunch and dinner sittings daily.
Delicious will cater for all budgets with a plethora of food options ranging from these three renowned pop up restaurants, a huge artisan food market (encompassing a vast array of African, European, pan Asian) and a line up of South African artists which will be announced soon.
Reservations for the pop-up restaurants can be made for lunch and/or dinner at a cost of R900, while general admission entry will cost R380.

“Delicious is clearly something not seen before and I am excited to be a part of this project”, said John Burton Race.
Delicious will open daily at 12:00 and promises to be a fantastic and entertaining day out for the entire family.
