Symphonic Rocks to Rock

This year sees the Heineken® Symphonic Rocks 2011 event take place which includes Zebra and Giraffe, Crash Car Burn, Arno Carstens, Loyiso, Tumi and the Volume, Mac Stanley, Locnville and Freshlyground. The Socialite finds out more…

The unique event sees a host of SA musos performing with the support of a full symphony orchestra to capacity crowds at Grand West Arena West Casino in Cape Town and The Big Top Arena at Carnival City in Johannesburg.

Presented by Heineken® in association with 5FM, this year’s line-up will feature a mixture of some of South Africa’s most popular artists representing a variety of genres including R&B, Rock and Pop.

“We are incredibly pleased with how the public has reacted to Symphonic Rocks this time around. Although announcing a Johannesburg date for 2011 was a risk, it was something we felt was necessary judging from the event reception in Cape Town last year. Fortunately, the reception has been great so far and we’re really looking forward to both events “says Andy Mac the event organiser.

The unique match up of chart-topping South African artists and a full symphony orchestra, set against the backdrop of an impressive lighting arrangement has all the makings of the musical highlight of the year.

Tickets cost R225 in Cape Town and R225, R250 and R275 in Johannesburg at Computicket. Capacity at each of the venues is limited so fans are advised to book in advance.
