The Cape Town Carnival, an annual celebration of creativity and diverse African identities, takes place on Saturday 18 March on the Green Point Fan Walk. And this year, Channel O, a sponsor of the event, is going to add plenty of pizzazz with a fantastic open-air after-party. “We’re very excited to be working with M-Net’s Channel O this year, making the carnival a brilliant all-round experience,” says Jay Douwes, CEO of the Cape Town Carnival.The theme for the carnival this year is “AMAZA – Ocean Odyssey”, and the floats and costumes will showcase many delights from the sea. And with up to 50 000 people expected to pour into the Mother City to take part in the festivities, wrapping up with a top DJ line-up is the perfect way to keep the crowds entertained.Local award-winning DJs Fresh and Euphonik will be taking to the stage at the end of the Fan Walk and bringing you live music from a gigantic sea-urchin float. The float, an impressive array of lights and colour, will be surrounded by massive speakers. “M-Net and Channel O are proud to be a part of this outstanding event. We pride ourselves on our local content offering, and Channel O is the perfect brand to host the after party which showcases the various local music genres we have in South Africa “says M-Net General Manager for South Africa Nkateko Mabaso.
