Ntsikwane’s Car Boot Unplugged is a live music session where musicians perform live from the boot of a car. The concept was created by Ntsikwane in 2017 as way to break the conventional setting of live music performances. It was a way for her to create a different space for performances due to the lack of live music venues in Polokwane. Ntsikwane’s Car Boot Unplugged allowed her to take her music directly to her audience through driving to local parks and reserves and performing from her car boot. The concept was soon picked up my Jeep Limpopo and sponsored with vehicles for performances. Audi Centre Polokwane came on board as a main sponsor in 2018 and the event took place at Radisson by Park Inn Polokwane.
Ntsikwane’s Çar Boot Unplugged makes its return in 2022 sponsored by the SAMPRA development fund. The event will take place at Mercedes Benz Polokwane on the 2nd of December 2022.
The purpose of Ntsikwane’s Car Boot Unplugged is to bring music lovers together in a space that they would not normally visit for a live performance – a car dealership. It also take away the usual performance stage that they are accustomed to and places the artists in car boots. Besides the unconventional setting of the performance, the main objective of the event is for the audience to get an intimate musical experience of the artists and to hear their music as it was when they initially composed it without the band. The QUESTIONS and ANSWERS session after each performance will also provide an opportunity for the audience to ask the artists questions about their music and life in general, something that hardly happens at your regular conventional performance(s).
