Volkswagen South Africa Creates First-Ever VW #Vivonation Music And Lifestyle Festival

The new Volkswagen Polo Vivo is here! As well as THE launch event of the summer. To celebrate the arrival of the brand-new VW Polo Vivo, Volkswagen South Africa has created an unmissable music and lifestyle festival hitting Joburg this March. Ladies and gentlemen, we introduce to you the VW #VIVOnation Festival.

Welcome to the VW #VIVOnation Festival

For two days, The Container Yard in downtown Joburg will be transformed into a multi-layered festival of experiences that’ll bring people together to enjoy, explore and celebrate the best in South African music, street art, fashion, food, new connections and – of course – the brand-new Polo Vivo.

Hundreds of massive containers will be repurposed to create a never-before-seen festival experience of stages, live music, a bespoke autocross track, activations, incredible car and light displays and world-class technology. As a proudly South African brand, Polo Vivo has curated an exceptional line-up of the biggest and hottest names in music from across the country, all on one stage.

Headlining both days is one of the country’s biggest acts right now, the incredible entertainer, Cassper Nyovest. Having recently performed to 72 000 people at FNB Stadium, his live show is incomparable and is guaranteed to entertain the crowds at the festival. Taking South Africa by storm is electronica artist, DJ Doowap, who’s fast becoming synonymous with the hottest festival line-ups.  A true creative, her style is influenced by London’s underground music scene, so fans can expect her signature hip hop, trap, grime, gqom, and bass beats.

Sticking with gqom, VW’s flying in Durban’s Babes Wodumo, the 23-year old MTV European Music Awards nominee who shot to stardom with her hit song Wololo.  Mampintsha and Ntando Duma will be joining her on stage to perform their hit Jiva Phez’kombhede. Hailing from Cape Town, The Kiffness is one of SA’s favourite live electronic acts, well known for their tangible instrumental talent and jazzy, groovy and uplifting house music. The Kiffness will feature SAMA-nominated singer/songwriter Mathew Gold as part of their set.

Completing the line-up is Durban’s singer-songwriter Kyle Deutsch, chart-topping vocalist Shekhinah, Mamelodi’s songstress Lady Zamar, hip-hop rapper Kwesta, award-winning house duo Black Motion and Gold selling songwriter, producer and DJ TIMO ODV.

Volkswagen is packing the festival full with day- and night-time activities that bring to life the essence of the new Polo Vivo: bringing people together, freedom, exploration and fun.

Get involved. Be part of something big, be part of a movement. Involve your friends, create and explore.
