I’m still sharing stories of the great time we had at last year’s 5FM Live Loud festival. The local acts were spectacular, the food delicious and the overall vibe was electrifying. This year, 5FM is doing it all over again but will be bigger and better than before! Yup, that’s right. 2016 sees the festival expanding to Cape Town in what is bound to be one of the hottest festivals of the year.
The two shows will be two weeks apart as the Joburg show returns to Marks Park in Emmarentia on Saturday, 10 September while Cape Town gets their turn on Heritage Day, Saturday, 24 September at Kenilworth Race Course. Last year, 11 000 people attended the festival, proving to be a hit with listeners.
Live acts performing at Joburg Live Loud this year includes the full caliber of 5FM DJs like DJ Fresh, Euphonik, and Roger Goode and proudly South African acts like the 5FM Ultimix resident and award-winning Black Coffee, Emtee, AKA and Locnville. The party starts at 10:00 and ends at 21:00 with early bird tickets at R195, available until 30 June and regular ticket prices are R350 with kids under the age of 12 getting in for R100. Group bookings of 10 or more will be given a 10% discount. Tickets are available from Computicket as well as Checkers and Shoprite stores.
Cape Town Live Loud will no doubt please the station’s loyal listeners and offers an equally impressive line-up. The Cape Town Live Loud featured acts include several 5FM DJs as well as Black Coffee, Jimmy Nevis, MiCasa and GoodLuck. Doors open for the event at 10:00 and close at 23:00 with your early bird tickets at R295, regular priced tickets are R345 after early bird closes and kids under 12 years are R100. There will be a kid’s play area at the venue with security and all tickets are available from Computicket only.
Best believe that I’ll be getting my tickets. If last year is anything to go by, it’s going to be one amazing day – and with that line-up, how could it not be! Will I be seeing you there this year? Let me know!
