Durban July

The Vodacom Durban July, the greatest racing, fashion and entertainment extravaganza on the African continent, takes place at Greyville Racecourse. Television has brought great sporting events right into the living rooms of homes around the world but there is still no substitute for being right there, in the middle of things to experience the sights, the sounds and, above all, the adrenaline rush that comes with live action. The Vodacom Durban July is probably one of the oldest horseracing events in the country. The first race was run in 1897 and was contested over 1.6km, and ever since then it has become an event not to be missed in South Africa. This event calls for celebrities, socialites and the elite to show off their outfits, their bets and their social skills. The excitement of Vodacom Durban July surpasses that of any other event on the African continent, with huge crowds expected on course and millions of others around the country taking serious bets or having their annual flutter.

Rocking the Daisies

Every year, the sleepy Western Cape village of Darling comes alive – not just with vibrant blooming daisies, but with one of South Africa’s most glamorous music festivals. Rocking the Daisies is an entirely different approach to the music festival space that encourages attendees to live an eco- friendly lifestyle. It is the biggest outdoor camping music festival in South Africa. Annually there are approximately 250 acts and 11 stages, which incorporate music, comedy, art and film. Promising a massive party and incredible big-name acts, this famed music fest is set to put a spring in your step. The party takes place at the Cloof Wine Estate in Darling every October, when thousands of tents are laid out next to large tracts of farmland that play host to giant stages, all of them filled with the best local and international music guests that the organisers can muster, resulting in a line-up that never fails to excite the crowd. The town of Darling itself comes alive with the influx of festival-goers during this “three-day weekend” in October.
