Swedish House Mafia Cape Town show to move to new venue
17 January 2013 by Lourensford Wine Estate
The Cape Town show of Swedish House
Mafia’s One Last Tour, originally scheduled to take place on Lourensford Wine
Estate on Sunday, 27th January
2013, is moving venues due to the ongoing farmworkers’ strikes in the region.
Colonel MA Williams, Station Commander
at Somerset West SAPS, released the following statement: “Due to the
uncertainties surrounding the ongoing farmworkers’ strikes in the area, it was
deemed a safety risk to hold a public event of this scale on the farm whilst
the strikes in the area have not yet been resolved.”
venue that the organisers managed to secure at this late stage, is the polo
field at the Cape Town Ostrich Ranch, located next to the N7 on the way to
Malmesbury. The date and time of the show remains unchanged.
that this is a massive change so close to the show dates, but on the plus side,
the Cape Town Ostrich Ranch has easier access for cars entering and leaving the
venue, and is closer to Cape Town so will mean less traveling time for
party-goers,” said Shaun Duvet from Electric.
“The production will remain as was originally planned for Lourensford,
and is guaranteed to transform the venue into a world-class stage, fit for the
Swedish House Mafia.As soon as the Somerset West SAPS
deemed it a safety risk there
no choice for us but to find an alternate venue. No event is worth risking people’s safety
Note that ticket holders do NOT need to change their tickets. All
existing tickets purchased for Lourensford will still be valid, however if any
ticket holders are unhappy about the venue change,
Computicket will be offering full refunds.
