A Taste Of Sónar switches venues
Okay, Joburg, it’s just a change of venue at the A Taste Of Sónar event which will be switching locations from the Nasrec Expo Centre to the Sandton Convention Centre.
The organisers of A Taste Of Sónar at Seed Experiences have stated that their reasons for doing so are centred around overcoming what they have labelled technical challenges presented by Nasrec Expo Centre.
Having worked closely with the Pet Shop Boys production team over the past few weeks as we prepare for these events, we were collectively unable to overcome certain technical challenges that the venue was presenting, which were not present at the time of the event launch as the Pet Shop Boys ‘Electric’ world tour had not yet been included. Sandton Convention Centre is far better suited to the requirements of Pet Shop Boys’ ‘Electric’ tour rider and we want to ensure we produce their show as it has been seen and produced worldwide to sold-out audiences,” says Blaise Janichon, Operations Manager at Seed Experiences.
If you recall from a previous news post we made about the Sónar events happening in South Africa this month, you will know that A Taste Of Sónar, taking place on the 12th December, is the lead up ‘taste tester’ to the main event happening in Cape Town on the 15th and 16th of December.
You will be pleased to know that the full line up and times remain unchanged:
18h00 – Jazzuelle (Bridges for Music)
19h00 – Thibo Tazz
20h00 – Black Coffee
21:30 – Pet Shop Boys (UK)
23:45 – The Bloody Beetroots (Live) (Italy)
