Cape Town - The festive season has begun and we've got you covered with the latest must-do events to check out across the country. 

In Joburg, the Soweto Ink festival focuses on local art and tattoo production, aiming to get local South African talent on the ink map so to speak. The ink festival brings together tattoo artists from all around the world and unites Jozi nightlife with art. Or you can get your hands on tickets to the biggest jam around, AfroPunk Joburg. 

In Cape Town, the multi-award-winning DJ and producer, Black Coffee, will be returning to Shimmy Beach Club this December for his second summer residency, with five exclusive Friday night shows.

In Garden Route, get ready for the Knysna & Plett Blues Festival taking place on 16 December in Knysna's Mitchell's Brewery and 17 December in Plettenberg Bay at The Barnyard Theatre. It's currently enjoying its third year of classic and modern Blues love, with local artists from all over the country.
