The launch of the new VW Polo Vivo has set tongues wagging. The new model is is more like an upgraded Polo. Celebrities have come on board as ambassadors for the car brand and to test the new wheels.
A free lifestyle festival, Vivo Nation, to mark the occasion is on the horizon. Next month, The Container Yard in Joburg will be transformed into a hub of street art, fashion, food and music.
Over two days – March 10 and 11 – containers will be repurposed to create a never-before-seen festival experience of stages, live music, a bespoke autocross track, activations, incredible car and light displays, and world-class technology.
Headlining both days is one of the country’s biggest acts, Cassper Nyovest. Having recently performed before 72000 people at FNB Stadium, his live show has reached another level.
Electronica artist DJ Doowap is fast becoming synonymous with the hottest festival line-ups, not just for her music, but also for her eccentric style.
Her style is influenced by London’s underground music scene, so fans can expect her signature hip-hop, trap, grime, gqom and bass beats.
Chart toppers Shekinah and Lady Zamar are also in the line-up. Things will heat up when the likes of Black Motion and Kwesta hit the stage, as well as the sounds of producer and DJ TIMO ODV.
VW will be flying in Durban’s Babes Wodumo, the 23-year old gqom star who shot to stardom with her hit song Wololo. Mampintsha and Ntando Duma will be joining her on stage to perform their hit Jiva Phez’kombhede.
Hailing from Cape Town, The Kiffness is one of SA’s favourite live electronic acts, well known for their tangible instrumental talent and jazzy, groovy and uplifting house music.
The Kiffness will feature Sama-nominated singer/songwriter Mathew Gold. Completing the line-up is singer-songwriter Kyle Deutsch.
At the weekend, Yfm hosted some of the ambassadors, including Lalla Hirayama and radio DJ Khutso Theledi.
