Win 1 of 5 sets of Double Tickets to The Music Exchange with Cape Town Music Scene by

answering the following question: Who are you looking forward to see at the Music Exchange?


  1. I would love to hear from Benjy Mundie, Lance Stehr and Mike Joubert. I think the discussions at the event are crucial to getting a better understanding of where the “wheels” that drive the industry are at, and how musicians themselves can do their part. I’m most interested in what Mike Joubert sees as the future of marketing and branding in the industry and how we’re able to take this to the masses.


  2. Would love to hear what Nick Motstate and Nick Matzukis has to say about the business and contractual side of the industry, as well as all of the other speakers, can’t think that there will be any speakers that anyone won’t be able to learn something from.

  3. I would really like to see Gabi Le Roux. I feel his one of the pioneers of South African Music and a true inspiration. Winning these tickets would mean the world to me . Thanks
