February – Armin van Buuren
If you haven’t yet heard of this Dutch DJ and his influential beats, you’ve probably been living under a rock! The awesome news is that he’ll be making an appearance at the much anticipated Ultra event at the Nasrec Expo Centre on 10 February, 2018. Tickets are pretty pricey though, (the cheapest are R800) so it’s definitely a good idea to start saving that cash whenever you are able to.
April – Santana
The guitar genius is headed back to South African soil in April this year! Fans of his can book their spot at his Jozi performances on the 13th and 14th April, 2018 at the Ticket Dome or online via Computicket. Another bonus is that his special guests and opening act will be South African Afropop band, Mango Groove. Do you really need any more reason to book your tickets now? The cheapest ones are going for R490 – but hurry! They’re going to sell fast.
May – The Script
The Irish rock band that has the world talking is also making its way to Jozi. You can catch them on Wednesday 2nd or Friday 4th May, 2018 at the Sun Arena at Time Square in Pretoria. Tickets are currently on sale so you have the opportunity to book early – and you’re going to want to. They’re already selling like hot cakes. You can book your spot for R430.
