Two lucky Channel24 readers can each win double VIP tickets to either the Cape Town or Jozi gig!

Cape Town - Partygoers in Jozi and Cape Town are less than a month away from dancing under an urban sunset in their city streets with Olmeca Tequila to world-renowned US DJ acts Major Lazer, Dillon Francis and Flosstradamus.

Now two lucky Channel24 readers can each win double VIP tickets to either the Cape Town or Jozi gig! The prize includes a backstage pass and a meet and greet with the international artists Major Lazer, Dillon Francis and Flosstradamus, access to the VIP area and free Olmeca tequila!

This is the first time an official Mad Decent Block Party has left North American shores – and we’re going large! Expect nothing less than a fully-fledged live show from Major Lazer including Diplo’s iconic hamster ball, professional twerkers, dancers, sprinklers, mascots, ridiculous amounts of energy and some wild surprises.

Supported in both Jo’burg and Cape Town by American Moombathon artist Paul Devro and local heavyweights Das Kapital and Sibot & Toyota, these events are set to be nothing short of uninhibited, street-style fun with a South African flavour.

In Jozi on Saturday 8 February 2014 Liver will get the crowd warmed up and the king of drum and bass, Niskerone, will play the closing set following Major Lazer. On Sunday 9 February 2014, Cape Town will experience the beats of kwaito duo Ruffest as well as bass and hip-hop DJ White Nite. In the spirit of a traditional urban block party there will be food trucks serving everything from boerie rolls to shisi nyama.

Each Mad Decent Block Party features four local DJs and four international acts – a packed show for only R275 a ticket, available through Webtickets.

Joburg’s event will be held in the heart of the city at Mary Fitgerald Square and Cape Town’s event will be hosted at the Dias Parking Lot at the Foreshore next to the Nelson Mandela Boulevard highway fly-over. This is probably the first and last time this unconventional venue will be used because, soon after the Olmeca Tequila presents Mad Decent Block Party, the space is scheduled to become a building site.
