Vosloorus residents and surrounding areas have once again been rewarded for their support of the ‘Diski’. This coming weekend, MultiChoice Diski Shield Festival will make its second stop on Saturday and Sunday.



Vosloorus will host the ‘Derby’ themed Festival on both days: Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd April 2018.
