MyCityByNight had the pleasure of being the first to hear who the sister city to South Africa was in the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project yesterday at the Grand Cafe and Beach in Granger Bay. Just another average day in the life of semi-famous bloggers really
THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE YOUR CONFIRMATION, HERE IS ALL THE INFO YOU NEED ON WHO IS COMING AND WHAT ITS ABOUT! We’ll let Smirnoff tell you where it is and other stuff as they asked us not to say Just wait and see though, you wont be dissapointed!
Those of you following us on Twitter would have been the first to get the scoop on our adventures and seen who was chosen as the peeps in charge of keeping us grooving way into the night at what is going to be the best party that South Africa has ever seen…
Thats right MCBN’ers! The home of techno is coming to South Africa! No wait, not just South Africa.. TO CAPE TOWN BABY!
Here is the moment when the sister city for the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange was said to be… BERLIN! (us getting nice and cosy with Fresh & Euphonik)
A huge congratulations has to go out to the likes of local act Gazelle for being chosen to represent South Africa out in the friendly city of Berlin
The venue for the party is still to be anounced (we’re hoping for the likes of Thunder City at the Cape Town International Airport amongst some jets or even inside the massive CTICC), but we were told that wherever it is, it is sure to be converted to everything that is Berlin! Now I have been to Berlin and I have been to the legendary Love Parade, twice, and let me tell you, THEY KNOW HOW TO PARTY!!!!!!! And on top of that Berlin has just been voted as the 5th most beautiful city in the WORLD!
They wouldn’t reveal too much as they wanted to keep some things as a bit of a surprise (even from the everywhere like air MyCityByNight), but as an example, they said that for SA going to Berlin, the venue there will have hair braiders, boerie roll stands and maybe even a taxi and car guard or two- basically all things Cape Town and South Africa. As we get more snippets, we will be letting you know!
Now the part you all want to know more about- the talent coming to Cape Town…
With no less that 38 albums to his name, André Tanneberger, commonly called ATB, is a German DJ, musician, and producer of Trance music, oh and lets not forget… LEGEND! According to the official world DJ rankings governed by DJ Magazine, ATB was ranked #11 in 2009. He is also ranked as world number 4 according to “The DJ List.”
With old school commercial classics like You’re Not alone and Till I Come, ATB is sure to tear up the dance floor in CT!
Over the last 10 years Markus Schulz has fused the individual musical identities of progressive house & trance into his own creative and now inimitable hybrid sound. Following several highly ranked positions, in 2008 Schulz punched his way into the Top 10 of DJ Magazine’s Top 100 chart, landing at no.8. In repeating the exact same achievement in 2009, he now stands, quite unequivocally, as America’s no.1 club DJ.
Monika Kruse has cooking dancefloors from Chicago to Berlin and Tokyo since 17 years. Besides her DJ acitivities the native Berliner follows her own idea of Techno Funk as producer, party host and label impressario. “Music just makes me happy,” is how Monika Kruse explains her energy level.
Monika Kruse has played an active part in german club culture since 1991, starting as resident in the Munich based Parkcafé and as a member of the Ultraschall Crew.
