Locally Whipped Productions is presenting South Africa's first official Pod Party Music Festival - A New Day Out.

The event will take place at Montecasino on 28 and 29 November, with live music performances from a host of SA's top-tier artists. 

A New Day Out is a unique event that offers music fans a safe environment to enjoy the festival from the comfort of their very own socially-distanced pod, that will also consist of seats for four friends and/or family, as well as a variety of complementaries included. Event-goers will be able to order food and beverages, which will be delivered directly to their pod. 

"With the entertainment industry put on hold due to the current pandemic, we are proud to offer a platform that enables us to host an exciting and premier show in the safest way possible. Playing a part that will help further re-open the industry and give music fans a day out with their favourite artists," says A New Day Out organiser, Ryan van der Spuy.
