Prepare for what could be the biggest retro party yet in the Mother City as the 100% RETRO PARTY is firmed up to take place at Cape Town’s DHL Stadium on Sunday, 7 January, 2024. The event will feature a large contingent of international dance acts and DJs from the 80`s and 90`s.
The 100% RETRO I THE PARTY gig will showcase an A-list line-up and bring back some of the best memories of their tenure in that musical era.
Who’s on stage
Performing live on stage and for one night only will be Technotronic, Snap!, Dr Alban, Haddaway, Twenty4Seven, 2 Unlimited, Rozalla, as well as one of SA’s Nádine and a host of international and local 90s DJs, including Barney Simon, Alex Jay, Ian Fraser and Shawny B.
Who remembers I’ve got the Power and Rhythm is a Dancer – songs that made Euro dance group Snap! world famous. The same rings true for Technotronic’s Pump up the Jam and Get Up, which were just two of their many global hits. Their songs still have a huge presence on the playlists of major clubs around the world and they are still entertaining music fans of all ages.
Daisy D from Technotronic can’t wait and is super excited about the 100% RETRO live show: “Finally in SA and you better be sure… It will be the hottest show ever in Cape Town,” she says.
And do you remember Rozalla? As soon as you search for Everybody’s Free on music apps you will! The Zimbabwean superstar is expected to give the eight-hour show a unique African touch.
Among the hits that made the other artists famous are compositions such as It’s my Life and Sing Hallelujah by Dr Alban, and Haddaway’s What is Love.
Then there’s Twenty4Seven who still rocks a party with Slave to the Music and I can’t Stand it! 2 Unlimited will bring great memories with Get ready for This and No Limit!
“Being part of this incredible line up and extraordinary show in beautiful South Africa is something I’m really looking forward to,” adds Trinidadian-born Dutch singer Haddaway.
South African singer Nádine will pay tribute to Tina Turner, Sinéad O’Connor, Whitney Houston and more. She says that she is delighted: “Bringing their smash hits in a remake that fits the style of the 90s is a superb challenge. I am looking forward to entertain thousands of retro lovers!”
“It’s unlike anything that’s been staged in South Africa,” says Barney Simon, who will also be one of the MCs and DJs at the party. “It’s fresh and left field and I have no doubt a lot of 100% retro-music fans are getting excited reading this and thinking: finally!”
