Lumo colours, lit up furniture, contrasts between industrial and modern architecture plus a trendy location that inspires the urge to dance the night away – this is what to expect at the much-anticipated, official opening of The Loop nightclub. Taking place on Friday 9 December 2011, Dino Bravo, Dean Fuel and others will ensure that The Loop opens with a bang!

Anything and everything from R’nB to Commercial, House and Progressive beats will get you dancing three nights a week. The multi-levelled venue has a Bo-Kaap inspired exterior in varying colourful shades, while the interior flaunts gorgeous décor and a number of dance floors that are sure to keep you grooving until the early hours. The Loop is situated near Cape Town’s premier nightlife hub of Long Street, with safe and secure street parking for guests. This stylish club will offer the chance to dance to renowned acts like no other nightclub in Cape Town has ever seen.

The ground floor consists of an alluring dance floor and an illuminated bar that runs along the entire length of the building. The first floor features a sharp lighting system with incredible Technicolor displays. The rest of the first floor overlooks the dance floor, with an extra bar and access to a spacious open-air balcony. VIP lounges above the DJ box will give VIP guests a closer look at the mix of electrifying DJ’s on the line-up. The VIP lounge area is perfectly positioned on the second floor. This area boasts lavish furnishing and a private bar, catering to the most discerning customers, who will enjoy views of Lions Head and the surrounding city skyline as they party the night away.

The Loop is committed to uniting sounds and styles in a way that challenges expectations. No limits. No compromises. Just rollercoaster rides of great DJ’s and live performances, that have all collided to create one super club,” says Wai-Szee Sing, co-owner of The Loop.

DJ’s spinning the latest and greatest R’nB, Commercial, House and Progressive tunes throughout December 2011 consist of various local and national DJ’s such as Sikhu, Crazy White Boy, Digital Divas, DJ Jaz, Dino Bravo, Dean Fuel, Roger Goode, Lady M, Yaron, Sox, Jared, Kathrine Grenfell, Vanessa Holliday, Neil Tall, Leyton Lee, Kyle Phonics, Harael, Gareth Devour, Dominique, Euphonik, Jason Van Wyk, Mixi, Jono, Pascal and Pearce plus DJ Zeejay.

28TH OYSTER FESTIVAL SEES GROWTH IN CULTURE AND SPORT http://www.stufftodo.co.za/28th-oyster-festival-sees-growth-in-culture-and-sport/ Fri, 24 Jun 2011 10:32:16 +0000 http://www.stufftodo.co.za/?p=4109 An authentic township and shebeen experience has been added to the 2011 Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival programme.

OysterAn authentic township and shebeen experience has been added to the 2011 Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival programme.

For the first time in the festival’s 28 year history festival-goers will be able to experience everyday life in a township with the introduction of The Shebeen Experience. Running from 2 -9 July The Shebeen Experience offers people the opportunity to experience the music, community life and cultures of people living in a township.

Held at Club 702 in White Location over-looking the Knysna Heads, visitors can taste local cuisine while listening to local music. A battle of the DJs will also run throughout the festival.

“The Shebeen Experience is particularly for those who have never had the experience of being in such an environment as well as at the same time bringing the Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival closer to the community,” said Nkoli Didi, organizer of The Shebeen Experience.

Already the largest oyster festival in Africa, the Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival which takes place from 1 – 10 July will see over 65 000 visitors flocking to the small Garden Route town and over 200 000 oysters being consumed.

Another first on the festival program is the Stand Up Paddle for surfers (SUP) which takes place on the Knysna Lagoon on July 6. Here surfers standing on their boards with paddles compete against canoeists in 6km race across the lagoon.

The Hansa Waterfront Rush is back on the programme this year thanks to new sponsorship. The Rush is a race against the clock over an obstacle course setup on or above water at the Knysna Waterfront. It takes the average participant 12 minutes to complete the course and each entrant gets two chances to post a time during the first 2 days of the event.  The participants with the fastest 8 times go through to the knockout final rounds on the Sunday.

A four day rugby festival is also new to the programme. This includes a tag rugby tournament for schools in the Western Cape, an Under 13’s Rugby Coaching Clinic for local school children with the SWD Eagles and the Steri Stumpie / KURFC Oyster Development Cup 15-a-side tournament.

With over 100 events to choose from there is something for everyone at this year’s festival including township tours, the Pick n Pay Oyster Festival Soccer Tournament, the SA Dog Agility Championships, the Athletics SWD & Knysna Marathon Club Relays, a Boccia Tournament for the disabled, the Precision Drill Display by Sea Cadets of TS, the Oyster Rapid Chess Tournament, the Hornlee Oyster Festival Fun Run/Walk (5km) and the Knysna Classic Golf Day to name a few. So choose your activity, get training, pack up the family and book to be part of SA’s winter holiday destination of choice to make sure you don’t miss out. For further information visit www.oysterfestival.co.za or call Knysna Tourism on 044 382 5510.
