The station heads to the province for a weekend of great live entertainment, DJ sets and more at one of the country’s most entertaining resorts, Sun City. From Friday, 13 – Sunday, 15 July, party-goers will be treated to a concert at the Superbowl headlined by award-winning MiCasa. Durban duo, award-winning Distruction Boyz joins the line-up along with fellow Durban band Easy Freak.
The weekend kicks off with a party at The Shebeen at 8pm, powered by the 5FM Weekender5 Ryan the DJ, Ms Cosmo, DJ Loyd and Kid Fonque on Friday night.
5FM and Nedbank’s Ke Yona Team Search will conduct a soccer clinic on Saturday from 9am – 3pm as part of the station’s CSi arm Youngblood5. One hundred kids, aged 13 – 19 from in and around the area will be invited to the Sun City soccer fields for the clinic.
