Castle Lite Unlocks Post Malone and a second day

Get ready for Post Malone–and a whole second day with more surprises

We didn’t get to go to Castle Lite Unlocks Chance the Rapper last year but the brand behind everyone’s favourite beer is making up for it with a beefier show than ever.

For 2019, Castle Lite has unlocked Post Malone and something new: a 2-day festival. The new format Castle Lite Unlocks was announced Wednesday (3 April) at a press event in Newtown hosted by Moozlie and DJ Warras (there was also a simultaneous Durban launch).

But it was more than just a ‘here’s who Castle Lite is unlocking–see you in June and have a nice day’ kind of vibe. The day kicked off with a launch of Castle Lite’s first-ever pop-up shop. After the pop-up shop was opened, it was announced that Castle Lite Unlocks will return to the TicketPro Dome from 17-18 June.

Why Post Malone? Apart from being a “Rockstar,” the man’s got the credentials to back it up. He had  the year’s biggest debut and a record-breaking streaming numbers and is hip hop’s biggest name right now.

But there was more to be unlocked. On Day 1, expect to be entertained by Sway Colloway, Riky Rick, Nasty C, Rouge, Ayanda MVP, DJ PH and Moozlie. Also, if you think you deserve to be unlocked by Castle Lite in the years to come, Sway will be hosting the first ever Sway Cyphers in South Africa. So get there and get known.

“As a brand, Castle Lite consistently sets out to connect with our consumers and ensure that we understand how their world and passions continue to evolve,” Castle Lite Brand Director, Silke Bucker says. “Our consumers are at the centre of our innovation and we are honoured to be able to solidly contribute to the Hip Hop culture. Through strategic efforts, we have recognised the value and growth that the brand has gone through with and within this dynamic culture.”

“Our collaborations within the hip hop industry have expanded beyond music and our partnership with designer GalxBoy on Fashion, sneaker curator DM Customs on our limited edition sneakers and Sway Calloway on our day 1 are additions to the Castle Lite Unlocks experience that showcase how much we have evolved. We are anticipating a ground-breaking experience this year and looking forward to unlocking another first for Africa and the brand.”
