Konka, the club of the year in some people’s opinion, will not be open on December 31.

It would be the perfect venue to welcome the new year at, and attracting star power performers would be as easy as it has always been for this club, but:

We will be closing from December 28 up until January 9. This is to allow our team to break for the holiday season and to spend time with their families. This also allows us to plan for the coming year in bringing our customers new and exciting experiences.

These are the words of resident DJ and Konka’s lead publicist Linda Moeketsi.

A puzzling approach, but one that shows they consider their employees highly. They do have plans to go out to with a bang though.

Moeketsi explains:

We have a six-hour non-stop show on Channel O, #KonkaChristmas. It is a music show that brings you six hours of back-to-back music from De Mthuda, DBN Gogo, PH and Kabza De Small.

The programme is intended to give viewers a special Christmas. It will air from 1pm to 7pm on December 25 and will be hosted by Moeketsi.

Konka has also taken to the road with a tour that’s seen it take its brand of high-end partying to other parts of the country, including Bloemfontein and Polokwane.

“It has been really exciting for us as we’ve received a lot of support from customers all over the country. We have noticed people travel from far and wide to come and experience Konka, and we appreciate that. We strive to be the venue of choice for customers from all over the world.”

He said the #KonkaSummerTour has been a great success.

“We have received phenomenal support from our customers and are excited to be in Cape Town on January 2 at Cabo [formerly Shimmy Beach Club]. We recently were in Polokwane for a sold-out event.”
