My Coke Fest 2007 in South Africa
Over the last few years South Africa has been receiving a lot of international attention in a number of ways. Many of its designers, musicians and actors have received international acclaim and thousands of famous visitors from other parts of the world have been flocking to our shores to discover our little bit of paradise for themselves.
The 2007 year looks to be no different and already major event organizers are lining up the next big concert featuring a number of acclaimed international music acts which many South African’s never dreamt they’d ever see live. The My Coke Fest 2007 event is set to be the biggest music festival of the year and it certainly looks like it will be just as successful – if not more successful – than last year’s Coca-Cola Colab Massive Mix Festival.
Set to take place in April and May of this year, the event organizers are still signing up local and international acts to take to the stage and blow festival goers away. So far the event line-up includes Evanescence, Staind, 3 Doors Down, Hoobastank and acclaimed rock legends Guns ‘n Roses with more on the way. The concert will also feature some of South Africa’s best musicians who will be sharing the stage with these international heavyweights and adding a bit of South African flavor to the event. All in all ten artists will perform at each venue.
The My Coke Fest is set to kick off on 27 April at the New Market Racecourse in Johannesburg after which it will move to the Kenilworth Racecourse in Cape Town on 1 May. Durban will not be a part of the itinerary this year and event organizers will be able to exploit this fact to make the two existing shows even better than previous years. The event is set to be an exhausting but absolutely fantastic 12 hours in length with only one performer taking the stage at a given moment.
The My Coke Fest is likely to attract thousands of fans from across the country who will gather at these two venues to enjoy some of the world’s best live music. It is the first time that many of the international acts will be performing in the country and they are likely to be very surprised at the amount of support they receive and the number of fans that they have in this country.
