Happy Birthday to Sun City – turning an incredible 40 years old this year! And, of course, what better way to celebrate than with ‘The Big 40 Birthday Party’ which will be taking place on 7 December 2019, exactly 40 years to the day since the resort’s doors were opened to the public. An exciting line-up of local artists who reflect the diversity and depth of talent in South Africa has been confirmed.
The Big 40 Birthday Party will feature a ticketed concert at Valley of Waves with a host of top South African artists like Kwesta, Shekhinah, Dr Victor & The Rasta Rebels, Kurt Darren, Mi Casa and a special live production showcasing the resort’s history, culminating with a dazzling fireworks display. Local band, Soulmajestik, and Sun City’s very own Segaetsho Dynasty will also be given a platform to share a stage with these top South African artists.
Thereafter, the Sun Arena comes alive with The Big 40 After Party, featuring Somizi as the MC and Goodluck, Sho Madjozi, AKA, Prince Kaybee, DJ Christos and Vinny da Vinci and DJ Tira.
“Sun City shares Sun International’s commitment to supporting the local music and performing arts industry. In this spirit and to honour the exceptional calibre of South African talent, we will bring together some of the country’s most exciting performers to Sun City for The Big 40 Birthday Party. It promises to be a spectacular celebration of Sun City’s four decades of delivering exceptional entertainment and experiences,” says Mike van Vuuren, Resort General Manager at Sun City.
