South Africa’s longest standing horse race and Cape Town’s largest annual outdoor social event – the one and only J&B Met – is right around the corner.
The who’s who of SA will touch down at Kenilworth racecourse on Saturday, January 30, to celebrate the best of fashion, music, food and horseracing in an event that has been coming on since 1977 – and you can be amongst the revellers.
Celebrating their 39th year as event sponsor, what started off as a small sponsorship for J&B is now South Africa’s longest running sports sponsorship and the race itself is now the oldest horserace in the country.
Due to its popularity at this year’s event, the “Racing. It’s a Rush Public Village” will be back, giving racing fans an opportunity to not only get the best view of the horseracing, but also the front row to choice entertainment thanks to the “Schweppes Gig Rig in association with Goodhope FM”.
MC’s for the night include Funny man Kurt Schoonraad, and Goodhope FM Presenters DJ Loyd, Dalin Oliver and Carissa Cupido. The full talent line-up includes: Crazy White Boy Live, Jimmy Nevis, The Kiffness, DJ Reddy D, Kurt Schoonraad and some of Cape Town’s finest DJ’s – Sox, Dean Fuel, Strange Lovers, Brett Aitken, Kanan K7 & Larkin.
Also available to “Racing. It’s a Rush Public Village” ticket holders will be a food village, bars and ample space to sit and relax.
More than 50000 race-goers are expected to attend what promises to be a bigger and better J&B Met than ever before.
