Party with Afrotainment at the Durban July

Durban - There’s one event of the year that everyone glams up for to lose all sense and sensibility: the Vodacom Durban July.

And, since 2011, one of the most talked about places to do that is at the marquee hosted by record label Afrotainment, surrounded by owner DJ Tira and the rest of the family, Babes Wodumo, NaakMusiQ, DJ Cndo, DJ Fisherman, Duncan SA and their bestie, rapper Cassper Nyovest, who are all said to be performing throughout the day.

Their marquee, Tira told #Trending, will have a glass front and is fully air-conditioned with a small outside area where their 700 expected guests can experience an intimate but vibey day at the races while also watching the fashion saunter by.

“I thought that there was a need for my label with its great following to showcase our artists to the older Afrotainment fans and regular Vodacom Durban July attendees who can’t always make it to our shows,” says Tira about the July 1 event.

But if you’re not into the races, head to the Fact Durban Rocks concert at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on the same day.

On stage will be Cassper Nyovest, AKA, Gemini Major & Da L.E.S, DJ Tira, Riky Rick, Sphe & Naves, Black Motion, Babes Wodumo, Big Nuz and tons of others.

* A VIP table for 10 at the Afrotainment marquee goes for R41 000 and is only available from There are also lounge tickets available for R2 000. Tickets for Fact Durban Rocks can be purchased at from R200 to R2 000.

DJ Tira is giving away three double general access tickets to the Fact Durban Rocks concert. If you’ll be in Durban, SMS the keyword TRENDING with your name and email address to 35697. You can also email us at SMSes cost R1.50
