Put 2000 plus people in one area, add 35 DJs, Cap City’s finest acts, including Chad Da Don, Blaklez and Gusheshe hit-maker Cassper Nyovest live on stage and you get one of the most amped out PTA experiences of your life. Presented and organised by The Undisputed DJs, #CapCityCrunkNYE2 was surely one event that highlighted Cap City’s party scene and beyond, leaving no space for any disappointments.
On New Years eve PTA was officially TURNT THE F**K UP, as the second annual #CapCityCrunkNYE party took place at the Pretoria Botanical Gardens. While others were spending quality time with family, breaking into the year 2014 as traditionally as possible, the cool kids were out attending possibly one of the biggest parties in PTA. This year the Undisputed team took it up a notch bringing in more than enough entertainment value for the people. Uniting the capital city in a massive celebration, all I can say is that the night created an atmosphere of intense turning up!
With all the acts that were set to deliver on performances, every moment showcased the incredible vibe that was created throughout the event leading to the new year, whether it was Cassper’s performance of the much anticipated ‘Doc Shebeleza’ joint or the sound of Drake’s ‘Worst Behaiviour’, each moment just took everything to the next level. We reached out to the Undisputed DJS to get an exclusive view on how Capcitycrunk all started, where it’s headed and what one can expect from future #CapCityCrunkNYE events.
This was the 2nd CapCityCrunkNYE event, how did it all start and how has the response about it been so far?
CapCityCrunk was conceptualized by Dj Timo 3 years ago who had a vision to host a quality new years eve party in Pretoria with worth while entertainment value.The response has been amazing with 2,700 people attending CapCityCrunkNYE2.
The youth movement in CapCity has been growing dramatically over time, What was the idea behind CapCityCrunk and who are the key people behind it?
The idea behind CapCityCrunk was to unite PTA in a massive celebration of the coming of the new year. No need to go out of the province to have a good time on new years eve. CapCityCrunk provides great entertainment value within Pretoria.The key people behind it are the 3 organisers, DJ Timo, DJ Slipinc and Kia who are all part of Undisputed DJs.
So if one was to ask what CapCityCrunkNYE was all about, what answer would one expect to get?
CapCityCrunkNYE is all about energy, passion, love and unity expressed through music on every New Year’s eve. It’s a celebration of life and opportunity which results in the coming of a new year.
The marketing strategy used for the event seemed to be more of a personal & direct approach towards Cap City based people. Was this event meant to attract just the Cap City crowd and if so how did that approach work for you?
The event isn’t just for Cap City based people. We had party people from Polokwane, Mpumalanga, North West & Jhb who came through. The marketing strategy was intensive and had a broad appeal. We offered a fun, different, safe yet exciting way to bring in 2014. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, anybody can be a part of it as long as you’re 18 and older.
The love and support that people gave towards the event was pretty impressive, any thankful words you’d like to say towards your people?
Thank you to all the party people who came through to CapCityCrunkNYE2. You made CapCityCrunk what it is. The people are the heartbeat and soul of this annual event. See you all at CapCityCrunkNYE3. It will be bigger, better and more turnt up. Have an amazing 2014.
