Timo ODV is who I would love to see most. I love his sound and its music that’s gets your feet moving. Mini reminds me of the 60’s time period in London Town. Such a great time period. Thinking along the lines of Austin Powers ?

OMG!!! Its really hard to choose one person – definitely Shekhinah!!! She is amazing!!! My first car was a silver grey MINI Cooper S, it was really a dream drive and I love the way the engine sounded. A beast in a MINI version – powerful and sexy. I love MINI because of their excellent service – whenever I used to bring my car in it was so professional and such a treat!

OMG! This line up is too lit to be missed, my wife is a huge fan of Lady Zamar and it would be awesome to take her out to see her play live on stage… I dig the Twins on Decks and Timo ODV the most… I am an outdoors kinda guy and love travelling, I’ve always wanted to visit Carnaby shopping street in Soho in the City of Westminster, Central London… Thanks to Mini SA now I can have the feel of it right here in my country, what a time to be alive… This type of festival is my kind of vibe were cultures amalgamate, celebrating some British heritage infused with our local South African flavor… I drive a Mini Cooper S and am a member of the Mini Club Soweto… I’ve been turning heads with my car ever since I bought it and it took me to nice places all over the country… What a fun and funky car… Fun, Speed & Go-Kart Handling all in one… I love it! It would be great to be part of the 60th celebrations as a proud Mini owner… Partying with you would be the epitome… #LiveMini #Mini60Years

Warren Melnick August 25, 2019 at 7:53 am

Shortstraw will be tons of fun! I’m entering because the Mrs used to have a mini in the UK and with a heavy heart left it behind when she moved to Joburg. This will hopefully make her happy and bring back memories of her dream car in the UK.

Faye Nair August 27, 2019 at 9:51 am
