The world’s eyes will be trained on South Africa this summer, as the continent hosts its first-ever FIFA World Cup. 32 National teams will convene in ten stadiums across the country to compete for what many consider the World’s greatest sports honor. The action of the first game begins on June 10, 2010 but the celebration starts the evening before with a first-ever Kick-Off and benefit concert. The show is slated to be a mix of international superstars, African traditionalists, and even smaller-name performers near and dear to our Indie hearts. Johannnesburg natives BLK JKS take the stage to perform in their hometown at Orlando Stadium. The band, who describe themselves as “psychedelic rock dub” can be recognized by last year’s melodic international single “Lakeside” from 2009′s fantastic album, After Robots.

Artist: BLK JKS
Song: Molalatladi

Other artists performing at this legendary concert include Alicia Keys, Black Eyed Peas, John Legend, Shakira, Tinariwen, Vieux Farka TourĂ©, and Vusi Mahlasela. Tune in to the televised event with millions of others across the globe to celebrate the upcoming two weeks of international competitive spirit and unity! If you’re headed to South Africa you can grab tickets to the concert here.
