Crossover artist Johnny Clegg, Grammy winners Soweto Gospel Choir and ATO Records-signed Vusi Mahlasela are among the local stars who will take to the stage for the fifth 46664 concert, to be held Dec. 1 at Johannesburg's Ellis Park Stadium.

The event's international line-up includes Peter Gabriel, Annie Lennox, Corinne Bailey Rae, Ludacris, Goo Goo Dolls, Jamelia and Razorlight. Also adding her weight to the show will be Angelique Kidjo who is one of 4664's international ambassadors.

They will be joined by local acts such as SA Music Award winning indie rock act Cassette; urban hotshots Jozi; electronica act Goldfish; adult contemporary rock artist Arno Carstens; Afro-Pop superstars Malaika; indie rock act The Parlotones and American-based rock outfit Just Jinjer.

Details of the event were unveiled today at a press conference in Johannesburg, which was attended by former president Nelson Mandela and a host of artists, each who wore t-shirts bearing the 46664 inscription.

"It is not only the greatest honor an artist could ever receive to play at the request of Nelson Mandela, but possibly an even greater honor that our efforts will contribute to one of the most important initiatives of our time," said the members of Cassette in a statement.

The 46664 HIV/AIDS charity is named after Mandel's former prison number, during his years held captive on Robben Island.

The charity was launched in 2002 with the assistance of the Eurythmics' Dave Stewart and Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor. The first 46664 concert was held in November 2003 with an aim to raise awareness of the global HIV/AIDS pandemic and generate funds to support projects in sub-Saharan Africa.
