Following on from last year’s incredibly successful New Year’s Eve Live City Linkup, between Ballito and Cape Town, this year’s 21,000 fans at South Africa’s biggest New Year’s Eve (NYE) party will be treated to their first ever performance by iconic UK DJ, Pete Tong.
As both cities come together to celebrate on December 31, the “undisputed global ambassador for electronic music” will kick-off the festivities at Ballito’s famous new year’s eve street party before jetting off to Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront Rooftop Party to welcome in 2013 on his double-city night. Via a live broadcast, fans will get to follow this world-famous DJ as he departs Ballito and arrives in Cape Town on a private jet. His movement from one event to the next will be transmitted to each party with live interaction between both events.
Host to the world’s most listened to electronic music radio shows (the ‘Pete Tong Show’ and the infamous ‘Essential Mix’), Pete’s Tong is without doubt at the forefront of dance music. His influence over the scene globally, and his ability to discover and break new talent throughout his 25 year career, is immeasurable.
Now, fresh from another season of sold out ‘All Gone’ parties in Ibiza, and a touring schedule over recent months that’s taken him to every corner of the world, he now brings his unique brand of electronica to South Africa’s coast this December, creating the ultimate New Year’s Eve experience for locals and international holiday-makers alike, powered by 5FM. Fans should tune in to 5FM at the beginning of December for details on how to win this unique, exclusive Samsung Galaxy Experience new year’s eve prize, enjoying the best of Ballito and the charm of Cape Town with five-star accommodation in both cities. VIP tickets and SamsungGalaxy Smartphones will also be up for grabs.
