One of the most anticipated events of the year is finally knocking at our door. We’re counting down the days to AFROPUNK Joburg 2019.

What Is All The Hype About?

Joburg is one of only six countries around the world that host this event. AFROPUNK is a movement that is taking over art, fashion, music and politics.

AFROPUNK brings together creatives from all walks of life. This is a place where open-minded, quirky, unexpected, bold, weird and creative misfits all come together as one.

The movement is about creating and expressing. AFROPUNK 2019 is taking place on 30 and 31 December at Constitutional Hill.

AFROPUNK’s Thoughts:

“Afro: as in, born of African spirit and heritage; see also Black, see also rhythm and color, see also other, see also underdog.

Punk: as in, rebel, opposing the simple route, imbued with a DIY ethic, looking forward with simplicity, rawness and open curiosity; see also other, see also underdog.”

Haig Club Clubman X AFROPUNK

This has to be one of the most amazing collaborations that we’ve seen and these two promise to bring you an experience like you have never seen before. This is the start of something spectacular!

Announcing their 3 year relationship has had everyone talking about the two power brands and the people backing the brand.

That’s The Spirit

Haig Club Clubman is a premium beverage made for those who live for innovation and master scotch whisky craftsmanship.

This square blued-bodied single grain sip of spectacular is bringing a tasty and smooth experience to the event this year. This is certainly something to look forward to. Haig Club Clubman is partnered with the loved and talented David Beckham, so you can only imagine how bold the brand must be.

The brand aims to change the drinking experience of those who appreciate a progressive spirit. The inspiration for the name can be found in advertising materials dating back to the 1920s, in which Haig was advertised as “The Clubman’s Whisky”.

Imagine this: A bold glass of whisky, iced to perfection with a swipe of zesty orange on the rim and topped off with a good ambience, music and people.

Something to raise the glass about!
