Jammin’ n Ting has since become a major music and arts attraction for both locals and foreigners due to its diversity.
Deejays, selectors, poets, musicians and crafters are among artistes who showcase their talent at the four-day festival.

Selektah Che of Ragga Vybz told XpressPeople: “We are looking forward to the platform the festival offers us. Last year, we interacted with the various artistes who graced the festival and this gave us strength and a broader audience to showcase our talent.

“For instance, we met with South Africa’s Fanta Jozi at the festival and our understanding gave way to our bringing him into the country for the Summer Mashup show we hosted at the Victoria Poolside last December.

“That is why we are very excited about this year because the line-up is just great, and we have many fans from around Lesotho who have expressed interest in joining our trip.

“Their support will boost our confidence as we are going to blow those multitudes away, while at the same time, they will enjoy the vibe that the festival brings.”
