A Taste of Sónar in Johannesburg 12 December 2014

In an effort to ensure the spectacular production of the Pet Shop Boys headlining ‘Electric’ performance, Sónar Cape Town organisers Seed Experiences have confirmed that A Taste of Sónar in Johannesburg will be moving from the Nasrec Expo Centre to the Sandton Convention Centre.

“Having worked closely with the Pet Shop Boys production team over the past few weeks as we prepare for these events, we were collectively unable to overcome certain technical challenges that the venue was presenting, which were not present at the time of the event launch as the Pet Shop Boys ‘Electric’ world tour had not yet been included. Sandton Convention Centre is far better suited to the requirements of Pet Shop Boys’ ‘Electric’ tour rider and we want to ensure we produce their show as it has been seen and produced worldwide to sold-out audiences,” says Blaise Janichon, Operations Manager at Seed Experiences.

The dazzling ‘Electric’ show makes use of innovative stage production, with lighting and set design created in collaboration with Es Devlin, who has worked with Lady Gaga, Kanye West & Jay Z, Take That and the 2012 Olympics’ Closing Ceremony. Attendees can expect cutting-edge audio-visuals, original choreography, four outfit changes and, of course, lots of amazing hits from the iconic UK duo.

A Taste of Sónar in Johannesburg is the teaser event on 12 December ahead of Sónar Cape Town on 15 and 16 December, where Pet Shop Boys will headline the Opening Night on 15 December. They will also be playing a standalone show in Durban at People’s Park, Moses Mabhida Stadium on 19 December.

The final lineup and times for Johannesburg remains unchanged:
18h00 – Jazzuelle (Bridges for Music)
19h00 – Thibo Tazz
20h00 – Black Coffee
21:30 – Pet Shop Boys (UK)
