In little over a week the lawns of Emmarentia Dam will be transformed into one of Jozi’s most loved music festivals, Vodacom In The City. Vodacom and Seed Experiences didn’t think one day of Vodacom In The City was enough and so they are bringing the vibe and energy of the festival to a venue near you.
In the lead up to the day-time event on Sunday, October 4, they’ll be hosting various events aimed at getting lovers of music together in and around Jozi and Pretoria.
Most are free for Vodacom In The City ticketholders, giving them even more value for their ticket, while a select few are open to non-ticket holders.

Come prepared to get wet and bring your sunscreen, or just chill on the dam banks while you watch all the action. Prizes will be awarded for best-dressed and best sieges. Open to VITC ticketholders and registration is a must to secure one of the 100 spots available.
