The Neon Run JHB 2017: The line-up for Jozi’s most exhilarating race and music festival combo has been announced.
One of the best things about SA’s most dazzling race, The Neon Run, is that the fun doesn’t stop after participants have made their way across the finish line. After the race, the night will ignite with a fabulous music festival to keep the vibe going strong. The next event in Jozi, which is happening on the 2nd of September 2017 at St Stithian’s College not only promises a new, contained 5km course with epic activations along the route, but also a sizzling line-up of some of SA’s hottest acts to keep attendees dancing into the night. Plus, don’t forget that this family-friendly run can be done at a walk, a run, on skates, on a bicycle or even at a hop, skip and a jump. All that matters is that absolutely everybody has an electric time at this unique event.
The acts confirmed for the music festival are a blend of the funkiest and most fabulous local talent around. This includes 5FM’s cool kid on the block, DJ Nick Hamman, who is also an accomplished musician and producer. He has performed at many music festivals, and his sets are eclectic and genre-defying. Mysterious trio Strange Loving Featuring Apple Gule will also be performing. Their edgy sound is influenced by disco through to deep house and their secretive vibe simply adds to their allure. The deliciously fresh breakout act Monark will be delivering a rich and polished pop performance to dance along to, while DJ Abby Nurock will be bringing musical therapy in the form of old and new-school infectious dance grooves and majestic beats. For jazzy, groovy & uplifting house music, live electronic act The Kiffness will be taking the stage and another favourite, Kyle Cassim, will be keeping crowds entertained with his passionate, high energy set.
Tavis Brown, Special Events Director of Oomph-Africa, is confident that there is something to entertain everyone attending: “We have confirmed a line-up that crackles with all the energy and excitement that people associate with the race. The Neon Run isn’t just about getting over the finish line – it’s about enjoying the entire experience and glowing from start to end!”
With the line-up confirmed and the party sure to be a luminous, light-up night to remember, all that’s left is for participants to grab their tickets and their craziest, brightest neon gear.
