Open Mic at the Lifestyle Centre

The Lifestyle Centre in Ballito KZN is one of the biggest supporters of local music and musicians in the region. Live music is a feature of this upmarket lifestyle shopping centre, with three performance areas offering almost continuous live performances during operating hours during weekends and holiday periods. Some of the best talent in the country has been known to perform at the Lifestyle Centre and for many aspirant musicians looking for an opportunity to audition for a slot, there’s the monthly Open Mic. 

Hosted in collaboration with Radio Life & Style 88.0FM, Ballito’s popular commercial music radio station, the Lifestyle Centre Open Mic takes place in The Market, a large communal food court surrounded by a variety of food vendors, all of which offer special discounts for those coming to enjoy the event. It happens on the third Thursday of the month from around 6pm – 8pm.

The backline amplification and sound engineering is supplied by the radio station and local radio personality, Mike Charles introduced the acts and keeps things moving. The performance slots are keenly contested by those eager to impress the crowd and the members of the Lifestyle Centre team in the hope of possibly securing a professional slot on the performance roster. To add to the excitement, a top local act is selected to top the bill. This raises the game and ensures the quality of performance at each Open Mic.
