Off the turf and on to the party

2008-07-04 00:00

The Vodacom Durban July does not end when the last naked man runs down the green. In fact, this is when the real partying starts.

Racegoers will be spoilt for choice at this year’s event with several parties guaranteed to keep people dancing until the we hours.

Once the sun sets, the party starts at tents around the racecourse and venues around Durban.

5FM and Skelters Straight will host the After Dark: To the Power of 5 party at the DLI Hall in Greyville. Leading DJs, including Dean Fuel and Vanessa Holliday, will join the 5FM team. There are a tented chill area, plenty of bars and food courts outside. Tickets are available from Computicket.

The Florida Road street bash also promises to be sizzling, with a line-up of local musicians and bands.

Party animals can dance to mixes by Danny Rampling at the Lounge, 226 Stamfordhill Road, for a Summer of Love party.

Tickets (pre-sale) are available for R150 from Idols (Musgrave and Pavilion), Silver People (Pinetown), Holmes Bros (Gateway) and The Lounge. Limited tickets will be on sale at the door for R200.
