Who remembers “I’ve got the Power” and “Rhythm is a Dancer” - songs that made Euro dance group Snap! world famous. The same rings true for Technotronic’s “Pump up the Jam” and “Get Up”, which were just two of their many global hits. Their songs still have a huge presence on the playlists of major clubs around the world and they are still entertaining music fans of all ages.

Daisy D from Technotronic can’t wait and is super excited about the 100% RETRO live show: “Finally in SA and you better be sure… It will be the hottest show ever in Cape Town!”

Do you remember Rozalla? As soon as you search for “Everybody’s Free” on music apps you will! The Zimbabwean superstar gives the 8-hour show a unique African touch.

Among the hits that made the other artists famous are “It’s my Life” and “Sing Hallelujah” by Dr Alban and Haddaway’s “What is Love” while Twenty4Seven still rocks a party with “Slave to the Music” and “I can’t Stand it!” 2 Unlimited will bring great memories with “Get ready for This” and “No Limit”!

“Being part of this incredible line up and extraordinary show in beautiful South Africa is something I'm really looking forward to,” says Trinidadian-born Dutch singer Haddaway.

She says that she is delighted: “Bringing their smash hits in a remake that fits the style of the 90s is a superb challenge… I am looking forward to entertain thousands of retro lovers!”

“It’s unlike anything that’s been staged in South Africa,” says Barney Simon, who will also be one of the MCs and DJs at the party. “It’s fresh and left field and I have no doubt a lot of 100% retro-music fans are getting excited reading this and thinking: finally!”
