  • SA's first drive-in festival is set to take place in Durban from 22 to 24 October.
  • The three-day show will include a comedy night, live performances and a movie night.
  • A statement shared with the press assures that the festival will "comply with all Covid restrictions".


It's here - SA's first drive-in festival.

Taking place in Durban from 22 to 24 October at the Greyville Racecourse, the festival will feature stars like Zakes Batwini, DJ Tira and DJ Sox.

"This Government regulated 3-day festival is set to comply with all COVID restrictions [sic]," a statement to the press reads.

It further adds: "The entire experience prides itself on a contactless event from ticketing to entry and even the purchasing of food and beverages. The organisers have taken all measures to ensure patrons are safe, comfortable with an unlimited options of entertainment [sic]."

In May, the idea of a drive-in concert was thrown around by Zakes Bantwini, with the musician explaining to Channel24 how a show like this would work.

"We can still practise social distancing and every restriction that the government has put forward in Covid-19 with its levels. We can still meet those restrictions while getting entertained and while the industry is still vibrant," he said at the time.

Tickets for the festival are available online at Webtickets and at Pick n Pay stores nationwide.

Those planning on attending can look forward to a comedy show on the first evening, live entertainment on night two, and a movie screening on the final night.
