The line-up of eight was first unlocked by DJ Sponch, whose tracks are both sitting at number one and number two on the chart. Hip hop artists Edlustar, Dala Fam, and Panda followed. They were followed by the vocals of RubyGold, female rapper Mblee, and Melissa Raw who bagged the title of the 'Best SoundBite Artist' for the night.
Guests were given a chance to vote for their favourite SoundBite artist using a personalised wrist band that used radio frequency identification technology.
The best headline performance of the night was Riky Rick, who invited the crowd onto the stage. Rick gave what some called 'one of his most engaging performances ever'. Other artists included Una Rams, Themba, Lunacy, DJ Uncle Party Time, and DJ Doowap.
SoundBite will host another event in Pretoria in November as a follow up to this event, showcasing more SoundBite artists. The performer who is voted as the best will go up against Melissa Raw at a New Year’s Eve concert in Cape Town.
