2022 Randshow is back with a BANG!

THE LAST edition of the Rand Show was held in 2019 which celebrated 125 years- but as fate would have it- pandemic happened.

Fast-forward to the year 2022, it is back with a bang!

It begins from April 13 to 19 at the Nasrec Show Ground, and features music festivals, a reality cooking competition; adventurous all-day kids’ activities and activations, and of course, exhilarating carnival rides, SANDF, and for petrol-heads (an abundance of all kinds of motoring vehicles), amongst others.

The week long expo stands to contribute millions into the coffers of the City, and create both direct and direct much needed jobs.

Nasrec covers over 150,000 square metres of exhibition space, therefore safety as per Covid-19 regulations will be adhered to, according to the new head of marketing, Craig Newman.

Concerns on whether rules won’t be broken as thousands of patrons will be attending the show, Newman assured the public that since they’ve opened online ticket sales, this would afford them to monitor and control crowds.

“Our huge space allows permits us to have both interior and exterior events, which means we’re entitled to have 2000 capacity outdoor. We will have dedicated teams that will be on the ground to monitor the situation to avoid being a super-spreader,” he told SLM with confidence.”

“Assure the public and your readers we’re hands on the deck.”

“This ensures that strict Covid-19 and social-distancing protocols can easily be implemented across the property, without placing the safety of visitors at risk. The multiple entrance and exit gates also ensure that the flow of visitors is managed and controlled without causing major interference to the guest experience,” continued Newman.

The music line-up features top SA acts:

On Friday 15 April: Goodluck and Mi Casa

Saturday 16 April Shekinah and TKZee

Sunday 17 April Kelly Khumalo, Doctor Victor and MXO

Easter Monday: Mafikizolo and AKA, and a surprise act.

“The launch of our new brand is a sign to the market that a fresh team is at the helm, and we intend to showcase amazing experiences and activations never-before-seen at the Rand Show,” says Adele Hartdegen, CEO of the Rand Show.

Siphiwe Dlamini- SANDF spokesperson (flatly refused to engage on the budgetary matter presented by the finance minister) said they look forward re-engaging with the public and offering an insightful experience with those interested in joining the Army.

Tickets range from R95, R60 for kids, Pensioners R60 & R170.
