EDM Fest Jhb 2012
It was our feeling that the South African electronic dance music sector was lacking an annual dance festival experience in the lines of Tomorrow land / Ibiza / Electric Daisy Carnival – something that will build annually, not only in size and attendance, but in an “OMG – wasn`t that awesome?!” guest experience.
With that vision firmly in mind, Tinderbox approached local promoter Nuwave Entertainment to source top international dance DJ`s and the EDM Fest idea was born!
The inaugural EDM Fest Jhb was staged in Hall 8 at The Expo Centre on the 15th of December 2012, and was an immediate runaway success!
With an incredible line-up of 5 top international dance artists, including Protoculture, W&W, Sarah Howles, Lange and Gareth Emery, the buzz started early and social media was alive with hype and anticipation leading up to this exciting music event.
Just over 3 000 Jozi party goers danced the night away until 5am the next morning, being delighted by the awesome stage production, lasers, pyros, inflatable crowd balls, sizzling stage dancers and some pioneering stage 3d video mapping projection – eye candy all round!
Having now tested the water, and with rave public feedback, 2013 will see the EDM Fest taken to new heights and attract top international artists and sponsors alike!
