NxWorries, the dynamic duo consisting of Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge, delivered a truly unforgettable performance at Cross The Tracks Festival. They mesmerized the audience with their unique blend of lo-fi soul synergy and captivating stage presence.
Anderson .Paak, renowned for his electrifying energy and stage persona, effortlessly commanded the attention of the crowd. Sporting a distinctive furry hat that added to his charismatic style, he exuded charm and captivated everyone in sight. Knxwledge, skillfully manning the DJ decks, guided the musical journey with precision and finesse.

Recent releases such as “Daydreaming” provided uplifting, sing-along moments that fostered a sense of unity among festival-goers.

Another anticipated act was Masego who delivered a charismatic performance that left the audience captivated, a melting pot of Jazz, Hip-Hop and soul. While his undeniable enjoyment radiated from the stage, the full extent of his infectious energy didn’t entirely permeate the crowd.

Kelis electrified the stage with her undeniable aura, captivating the entire crowd and unleashing a wave of sing-along euphoria, particularly with beloved hits like ‘Millionaire’ (my voice didn’t survive this one!).
Among the festival’s standout acts were the soulful talents of Children of Zeus, the captivating presence of Emmavie, and the raw brilliance of East London’s own Hak Baker. They delivered unforgettable performances that left no room for disappointment.
