VIDEO: STR.CRD 2012 | AREA3 Maboneng Precinct

STR CRD is the largest annual youth culture event in South Africa, focusing on fashion, art, music and street culture as a whole. This year was the third year of the event, held in The Maboneng Precinct, a new and exciting part of Johannesburg. This video shows of AREA3, adidas’ year long activation which you will be hearing about lots in the near future.

Brands that exhibited at the festival include: adidas, Nike, Two Bop, Super, Unknown Union, Converse, and many more. The Fesitival also included talks from some of the big names in street culture both locally and internationally, such as King Adz, Martha Cooper, Falko, and Ricky Lee Gordon.

I was in Johannesburg a few weeks ago for an incredibly short visit and on my way back to catch my flight, I decided to take the Gautrain from it’s Sandton stop to the O.R. Tambo Airport.

All in all, it was an incredibly smooth ride and wonderful experience. The station looks incredible, the train came on time and the ride was nothing short of pleasant. Highly recommended!

Hopefully Cape Town will be next!

ROA has been busy working on his wall non-stop since being in the Maboneng Precinct for I ART JOBURG.

With six massive African animals completed in a short amount of time, we’d say he’s done a brilliant job of bringing some wildlife back into the city.
