Shorter December holiday’s for students, tighter budgets for everyone, the ever increasing costs of, well, everything… Hilltop Live brings to South Africa, the biggest line up of Hip Hop and House for the least damage to your party moods and wallets.

This year, a four stop tour that will see #OneWayTraffic making its way to Pretoria, Cape Town and Johannesburg, with a triple threat line up that includes Black Motion, Groove Afrika, Riky Rick, while Durban will be treated to local talents Witness the Funk and Aewon Wolf.

Groove Afrika has become one of the up and coming names in South Africa’s youth House culture. This djing duo has driven Cape Town’s party scene towards a whole new direction and have established a cult following in the process since their start in 2012. The music duo Kgabo Senyatso, aka Ma Groovana and Kagiso Kalane, aka Don Pedro and known for their video and single – Sin City.

Witness The Funk is currently causing waves in the South African music industry with their break out hit single – Nomusa. This also marks the inroad of the Gqom trap sound into mainstream rotation, a sound that they championed themselves. Since forming in early 2015, this KZN based group have amassed over 35 000 followers and are dominating the local scene.

Robert aka DJ Murder teamed up with Thabo aka Smol to form Black Motion in 2010. The two have been in the music production business for about 5 years or so. Their breakthrough came when they produced the hit single Banane Mavoko. Since then, they have been producing and performing alongside DJ Qness, Black Coffee, Djeff and DJ Oskido with their own tracks Rainbow, African Salsa, Fortune Teller, Talking to the Drums and more.

Riky Rick’s first taste of music was at a recording studio session with Bongani Fassie. It was by Bongani’s side that Rick was inspired to make his own music. He released his first single Barbershop featuring Da L.E.S. and quickly rose to fame by the release of his hit single Nafukwa. He followed that up with Amantombozane (Remix) featuring fellow South African recording artists Okmalumkoolkat, Maggz, Kwesta, Ginger Bread Man, Kid X, Nadia Nakai and DJ Dimplez.

Riky Rick`s major debut single Boss Zonke was a major success, peaking at number 3 on the SA Top Ten list. That is when he released his fifth hit single Sondela which was dedicated to his real love, featuring Zano. The music video for Sondela featured his son, Pearl Thusi and Malik. In September 2015, Family Values was certified Gold by the Recording Industry of South Africa for shipments of over 20,000 copies. At the MTV Africa Music Awards 2015, he won the award for best video for his hit song Nafukwa.
