Cape Town counts down to 2014 with spectacular FREE New Year’s Eve celebration

The City of Cape Town’s  first ever, free New Year’s Eve party promises to be a visual extravaganza. 

Not sure what to do for New Year’s Eve? Then the Grand Parade is the place to be.

The City of Cape Town reminds residents and visitors of its first ever New Year’s Eve celebrations taking place on Tuesday 31 December 2013 from 18:00 to 00:30, amid a visual extravaganza of lights, top DJs and performers, dancers and a fireworks display.

Non-stop entertainment will rock the Mother City, complete with pulsating lights, laser and stage effects, award-winning electro-pop singer Toya Delazy, and DJs Ready D, Fresh, ClassyMenace, Dr Jules and Mixi.

An elaborate 3D video-mapping showcase will pay tribute to former President Nelson Mandela as just one of the exciting elements of the five-minute lighting spectacular in which the City of Cape Town is placed On Top Of The World for one night only. 3D mapping uses a combination of technology, light and design to project dynamic imagery on to buildings and shaped surfaces to dazzling effect.

Trenton and Free Radical will also take to the stage to get the crowd into the groove with the official ‘Madiba Jive’.

Along with an innovative stage, event facilities will also include big screens and music delay towers to ensure revellers do not miss a thing in what will be Cape Town’s most exciting New Year’s Eve event yet.

The New Year’s Eve celebrations will be followed by the Nagtroepe Malay choirs parade, past City Hall from Keizersgracht, towards the Bo-Kaap Museum.
