Get ready to mark your calendars for an extraordinary celebration of music, art, and culture at the Hey Neighbour Festival, as it teams up with Heineken®, the headline partner of the event. This dynamic collaboration promises an unforgettable experience that perfectly embodies the festival’s spirit of turning strangers into neighbours.

Heineken®, celebrating its 150th birthday, has chosen to share the festivities with all music, art, and culture enthusiasts. The brand’s mission to spark connections and break down barriers aligns seamlessly with Hey Neighbour’s ethos, making this partnership a true synergy.

To spread the joy of the festive season, Heineken® is taking Hey Neighbour Festival across Africa through a continentwide campaign. This exciting expansion will make Hey Neighbour a household name in ten African markets, including Mozambique, Ivory Coast, Ethiopia, and Nigeria, among others. The goal is to place Hey Neighbour on the same level as iconic international festivals like Coachella.


“We’re absolutely thrilled to have Heineken® on board as our presenting partner,” says Warren Le Grange, Hey Neighbour Festival Director. “This partnership is all about celebrating good times and unity, which aligns perfectly with the spirit of Hey Neighbour.”

Heineken®’s commitment to promoting inclusivity, diversity, and sustainability through good times resonates deeply with Hey Neighbour’s values. This partnership represents a shared commitment to fostering a global community that values music, art, and culture.

Marcel Swain, Heineken® Marketing Manager at HEINEKEN Beverages, expresses, “Celebrating 150 years with a festival of this magnitude only seems fitting in the spirit of Mzansi. We are elevating the celebrations with this partnership by allowing everyone to enjoy good times with Heineken®, one way or another.”

But that’s not all, Neighbours! The third and final phase of the festival’s lineup is about to be unveiled, featuring a spectacular blend of South African legends, international sensations, and the hottest current exports. Brace yourselves for the music extravaganza of a lifetime!

Joining the already electric lineup are international hitmaker REMA, legendary South African acts Mafikizolo, Prime Circle, Zakes Bantwini, Black Motion, and Desmond and the Tutus. These iconic performers are sure to bring the house down.
