Springbreak 2012 Goes Nationalon May 2, 2012
Springbreak has built a reputation of being the hottest and most anticipated event of the year – and 2012 is going to prove bigger and better than before. Sound Media, proud event partners to Springbreak for the last four years, will be taking Springbreak on a countrywide road trip, kicking off in KwaZulu Natal and running through to the Western Cape.
The youth fraternity’s annual pilgrimage to Sun City each year in September has been a sight to behold for over seventeen year’s. “We’ve loved every minute of hosting this event,” says Alastair Roper, Sports and Promotions Manager at Sun International. “Sound Media are the perfect hosts to take this annual event national. They’ve been involved in Springbreak for the last 4 years and this, coupled with their experience in presenting large scale events, will give students an alternative Springbreak adventure.”
“Springbreak has grown exponentially over the years and from the feedback we’ve received from tweets and our Facebook page, there’s a definite desire by fans for the event to take place in their home towns. The move will also offer a variety of accommodation options which will appeal to cash-strapped students.”
Over the years, Sound Media has built a reputation for providing cutting edge activations and events for some of South Africa’s best loved brands, showcased at nightclubs, beaches, shopping malls and music events around the country. As managing agents for the country’s top Dj’s and celebrities, as well as a handful of international acts, and their close ties to top music industry bigwigs, Springbreak partygoers can look forward to an extended line-up of entertainment acts this year.
Paul Almeida, Managing Partner at Sound Media, is optimistic that Springbreak’s new national footprint will resonate deeply with the South African youth, with an extensive engagement plan in the pipeline. “While we are finalising details of the festival, including confirmed dates and venues, I can assure you that we’ll be engaging with the existing Springbreak network to make sure we take into consideration their feedback and suggestions,” says Almeida. “Springbreak 2012 will be a truly memorable, fulfilling party festival, now open to a greater number of South Africans across the breadth and depth of our country.”
Sound Media will be delivering on all counts – beach, fun, entertainment and the best nightclub parties ever. With these prospects, South Africa is sure to take its rightful place amongst global Springbreak events.
