For more than a decade, bi-annual dance music mega-fest H2O has consistently rocked the African party landscape with overwhelming success. Ultra slick, always executed at full throttle and synonymous with sunshine, superlative music and unbeatable good times, the H2O juggernaut seems unstoppable!
And now, for the first time in South African party history one city will party with another! This March, H2O will take place on the same day, at the same time, in both Durban and Johannesburg! Massive LED screens set up at respective venues in both cities will facilitate a live visual feed from one event to the other, thereby creating an amazing real-time, two-way party spectacular!!
On Saturday the 5th of March, H2O City-To-City Powered by 5FM will touch down simultaneously at the Wavehouse at the Gateway Theatre of Shopping in Umhlanga and the Wild Waters Complex in Boksburg, Johannesburg; headlined by International DJ Marcel Woods and popular 5FM radio jocks DJ Fresh, Sasha Martinengo, Euphonik, Roger Goode, Erica Elle, Mlu, Milkshake and C-Live.
Hailing from Amsterdam, Marcel Woods has spent his career forging his own path, leapfrogging stereotypes and diminishing musical barriers. A studio powerhouse on many levels, Marcel’s mind-blowing mix of raw and energetic dance music has seen dancefloors and festivals fall before him in swift succession. Global Gathering, Mysteryland, Dance Valley, Trance Energy, Gatecrasher Summer Sound System, Escape Into The Park, Planet Love and Sanctuary in just one summer run! And to top that, 2008 saw him become the only DJ ever to play the Sensation White AND Black parties in the same season. Forget boxes and pigeon-holes, you’d need a cage to prevent Marcel Woods from setting the H2O City-To-City dancefloors on FIRE!
Along with spectacular sound, lighting and audio-visuals and the phenomenal H2O dancers, punters will be able to catch a sensational, collective line-up of South Africa’s finest local DJ’s burning up the decks with sounds from deep house and funky electro to hip-hop, progressive techno, trance and much more. Boasting three dancefloors and over thirty DJs in Durban and more than seventy artists across a total of eight separate arenas in Johannesburg, H2O City-To-City Powered by 5FM will give new meaning to the phrase, “double the fun”!!
DJ Roger Goode will be broadcasting 5FM’s Saturday Surgery show live from three different dancefloors at the H2O Durban event. Catch Roger on the Main Floor at 7pm then on the Hip Hop Floor with Milkshake at 8pm and finally on the Funky Floor with Coco Loco at 9pm. All happening live on 5!
