Samsung GALAXY Experience Presents The G&G Live Marquee at the Vodacom Durban July

The G&G Live Marquee is back at this year’s Vodacom Durban July and as one might expect with a Samsung #GALAXYexperience event, it is guaranteed to deliver the ultimate in party atmospheres!

Building on the success of their debut daytime tent at last year’s race day, the G&G Live Marquee is not only back, it’s better. Situated between three water hazards on the golf course, it is the most striking of all the tents with chic and comfortable lounges, stylish decor and a winning party vibe. Production and hospitality have been stepped up to new levels, creating a relaxing milieu that doesn’t compromise on buzzing party spirit. The G&G Live Marquee will offer the discerning race-day goer more than just a little extra as the Samsung #GALAXYexperience continues to deliver on its promise to be at the forefront of the electronic music scene in South Africa.


This year’s entertainment includes the recently awarded “Best Drive Show DJ”, the man with the most distinctive laugh on the airwaves, 5FM’s own DJ Fresh. Also from 5FM’s folds, the ever-popular Roger Goode will be keeping patrons dancing long into the night. To complete the 5FM trio is the man you either love or hate: Gareth Cliff. The well-read and highly opinionated shock-jock will be partying up a storm as he spins eclectic tunes exclusively for G&G Live Marquee guests at one of the most anticipated days in South Africa’s social calendar. Support acts include resident DJ Graeme, Funky B, G-Funk, Benny Maverick, Lulo Cafe and Sp!ndoctor.

Where other tents fail to defy the ubiquity of providing drinks alone, the G&G Live Marquee features three levels of superior hospitality and entertainment.  As in 2012, R495 will get you entry into the tented village site, access to multiple bars and the #GALAXYexperience dance floor, a food village, smoking lounge, chill areas, screens featuring the day’s horse racing action and betting totes.

For R895, a VIP ticket affords guests access to the separate VIP tent with additional lounges,bars and private bathrooms. VIPs will be treated to a scrumptious selection of finger foods and canapes throughout the day.

A VVIP ticket at R1,595 grants patrons access to the Skyy VVIP lounge area where they will be treated to an open bar (excluding premium champagnes and spirits) until 18h00, as well as private bathrooms and access to the marquee’s decks which overlook the water features.


The Vodacom Durban July is all about the glitz and glamour and, of course, the racing.  For those who bring along their lucky rabbit foot and take an active interest in thunderous galloping to the finish line, they need not miss a thing with screens large and small scattered throughout the G&G Live Marquee displaying each riveting race. To keep energy levels up, the G&G Live Marquee will have a food court serving a variety of delicious meals, from sushi to wraps and much more.

For those after that extra extravagance one would expect at a day at the races, G&G Live has a limited number of lounge areas in both the VIP and the Skyy VVIP areas which can be reserved for the day for a party of up to six guests. These lounge areas will be attended by waitrons and are on offer for R3,000 for a lounge in the VIP tent and for R4,000 in the Skyy VVIP tent. These prices are in addition to individual entry ticket and places are limited.
