    Sir Richard Branson, the president and founder of Virgin Group, has announced the first-ever South African version of his Virgin Festival. Set to hit Johannesburg on December 13 and Cape Town on December 16, the show will feature such artists as Snoop Dogg, Maroon 5, OneRepublic and South African acts the Parlotones, Zebra & Giraffe, Jozi and Dirty Skirts.

    "In the last 12 years we have launched eight successful businesses in SA," Branson said in a staement. "We have over one million customers and 4,500 staff, and it just makes sense to launch Virgin Festival here—especially as South Africa has some of the most beautiful Greenfield sites in the world. Live music is growing—it's a great way to connect with youth and it is something to be positive about."
