With the relentless doom-mongering in the news and social media of late, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the whole world is about to be engulfed in darkness. A little bit of creativity may be the spark we need to light the way ahead. We invite you to be a part of Love Revolution, a one-day festival inspired by love, revolution and the power of transformation. Come down to Rich Mix on Monday, February 13th and discover a world of music, emerging fashion and creative collaboration.
The brainchild of #IITSPIRATION creative hub and international pop up collective Fashion Meets Music, Love Revolution promises to connect like minds ready for change. Be part of something that matters. Believing in art and its ability to heal and uplift is a revolutionary act in itself.

ROODBOY is inspired by the beauty of art; art which manifests itself in the form of hip hop, Afrobeat, reggae, ska and many other creative forms that have been created by society’s underdogs. The spirit of bravery, resistance and pursuit of excellence that birthed these art forms is what inspires Roodboy. Welcome to our world – enjoy yourself.
