Last days will rock at the Tshwane Fan Fest
Friday 9, July 2010
The City of Tshwane is seeing a successful 2010 FIFA World Cup out with a bang this week with an all-star line-up at the Fan Fest at the Centurion Cricket Ground, both on match days and non match days.
All the remaining five matches will be screened at the Fan Fest and entrance is free of charge. The City of Tshwane provides buses from township areas and the CBD and ample parking is available for those going by car. Visitors have also been pleasantly surprised and given positive feedback to media about the reasonable prices for food and beverages at the Tshwane venue. Fans can chose between mainline fast food chains and home made food by local vendors.
On the one remaining tournament rest day, the City of Tshwane will be hosting special Champions Concerts. The golden era of the 80s and 90’s will be celebrated on Friday 9 July with the Legends Music Spectacular featuring a nostalgic line-up of South African greats. These concerts, unlike the match days at the Fan Fest, have a nominal entry fee. Entrance is R30 for pre-booked tickets (Computicket and Shoprite stores) and R50 at the gate.
Internationally acclaimed local band, the Parlotones, will join Stimela and Black Coffee for a grand finale on 11 June on the day of the finals.
Details for the weekend ahead:

An eight hour concert featuring 27 prominent South African artists from the 80’s and 90’s.
The Legends’ concert line-up includes artists that produced hits in genres like “bubblegum music” as well as disco greats that have disappointed critics and stood the test of time. The ever-colorful Doctor Victor, PJ Powers, Pat Shange, Ali Katt and Zizi Kongo form part of the yesteryear’s greats that will grace the stage. Yvonne Chaka Chaka, who made traditional African beer an instant hit with her song Umqombhothi, and Mercy Phakela, who without a doubt increased revenue for takkie retailers with her smash hit “ayashisa amateki”, will add to the mix.
The host for the day will be the ever exuberant comedian and all-rounder, filmmaker and kwaito artist, Senyaka.

2010 FIFA World Cup™ Finals and Closing Ceremony
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
