York has the Times Square ball drop, Sydney has the magical fireworks display at Sydney Harbour… In Cape Town people go to Alcazar, the iconic New Year’s Eve experience that attracts Cape Town’s party cognoscente and visitors from around the globe. Watch last year’s showcase of this lavish NYE party, where everyone flies business class. Alcazar is an art immersive experience on three stages; with live music and Cirque-styled performances. It’s an eclectic party at the foot of Table Mountain where you can look up at one of the world’s seven wonders until the clock strikes midnight. It’s a 12-hour showcase by the reigning kings and queens of nu-disco, house, Afro tech and electronic. For a taste of the sound of the headline acts DJ Shimza, nicknamed the “Vinyl Assassin”, Dean Fuel, and the music that will be playing on the various stages, here’s our Sounds of Alcazar playlist. This year’s theme is Disco Amazonia. Dress up in your most exotic costume or simply come in a colourful outfit. Whatever you do, book your tickets before they sell out.
