Watch: Artists protest in Durban, clash with policeMultiple artists have taken to the streets of Durban, KwaZulu-Natal on Wednesday to protest against the regulation restricting music events from opening.

The N3 north and southbound, between Spaghetti Junction and the Pavilion has been blocked as a result of their protest action.

They call on the government to reopen music events with limited capacity on attendance.

The hashtag #VulaPresident has been seen trending on social media with notable artists including DJ Tira and DJ Bongz.

When the police arrived on scene, they tried dispersing the protesters with stun grenades and rubber bullets.

It was reported that several people have been arrested during the protest.

Despite the move to level 2 lockdown, some activities are still restricted including international travel, public gatherings – music events, funerals and religious events – spectators at sporting events as well as the curfew remained in place.

The pandemic halted music events, including live performances.

He also confirmed in March that R150-million relief fund was allocated to assist athletes, artists and technical personnel in both sectors.
