What was aptly coined as one of the ‘dead-towns’ in the country Kimberley has awoken from resting on its laurels to activities, economical emancipation and of course, attracting tourists- although that needs a robust debate.
Recently, the province was the host for the international tourism day celebrations; and what a ball it turned out to be…
With private sector realising the potential in the province, Castle Lite Lime and Vuzu TV are part of the music events unfolding this coming weekend.
From October 3 (Friday) celebrated house guru DJ Fresh (Thato Sikwane) will alongside local acts such as Chang,KG Smallz, Mandeep and others, bring down the house at the fashionable Opium joint-Kimberley until the break of dawn!
Entrance is R80 & R100 after 10pm. It starts from 8pm.
Ladies free before 10pm.
Then on Sunday (October 5) another international house master and usual suspect in Kim, Black Coffee will share the decks with Speedsta, Vigilante DJ Capital, Figo and others at the “Turn Down for What” -Hip hop and dance picnic at West End Club Braai Area from 12pm onwards.
Tickets: R120 at Computicket and R150 at the door and R250 VIP!
According to Kgomotso Modiragale, event’s organizer -such events would help to promote and market our province despite the notion that we’re a ‘sleepy or dead province’.
“It’s a known fact that hosting such huge events comes with huge responsibilities and the onus is upon people like us to make it happen.
How often do we host mega events, considering we only boast the likes of Diamonds and Dorings and international skateboarding?” he asked outrightly.
“We’re grateful to our sponsors who came on board to make this a reality. They saw a potential to grow their market from this province and we applaud them for taking such a hard stance.”
Let it be that the ‘Diamond City’ as Kim is referred to, shine as expected…
