Mercury Live Cape Town Relaunches
Mercury Live Cape Town will relaunch on Friday, 7 August at the same familiar location fans have come to love over the years.
It was indeed a sad day for the Cape Town live music scene and indeed for electronic music too when they decided to close down after so many years in the game.
The Pressure Drum and Bass nights at Mercury Live Cape Town were legendary and almost single-handedly kept the genre alive, kicking and screaming in the mother city. DJs like Hyphen, Bruce Willis and RudeOne all but made their name at the monthly Pressure parties.
More recently Club UNITY hosted a series of reunion gigs at the venue too.
But Mercury Live Cape Town will always be best known for their unflinching support of the live music scene with legendary bands like Springbok Nude Girls, Fetish and The Dirty Skirts amongst gazillions more.
But this Friday is an auspicious occasion as Mercury Live Cape Town reopens with new owners and the next generation of artists that will hopefully draw a crowd.
Full line up:
9pm – 10pm Melodik
10pm – 11pm iScream & the Chocolate Stix
11pm – 12pm The Rudimentals

Doors open at 8pm, with Melodik taking us through some chilled Dub from 9-10PM. Followed by some Afro-Pop fusion from the talented iScream & the Chocolate Stix. The night caries on with the legendary 13 piece Ska/Reggae band The Rudimentals who will be headlining the evening. Things start to heat up with our blistering DJ sets from 12am. Our very own M3zza9 will be kicking off the first set, followed by the insanely talented Grimehouse, who will be testing the new gear to its limits. Finally Marco Massive will be ending off the night.
Come and be blown away by the completely revamped sound system at Mercury Live Cape Town. The new sound system features an array of JBL Professional series speakers (VRX and SRX) and not just one, but two Midas M32 digital consoles. With the mix of high quality sound and the talented lineup, this will be one night that you will not want to miss! #mercuryrising
