Mercedes-Benz reveals B-Class Upgrade

Published

on

Known for its functional and beautiful design the Mercedes-Benz brand is constantly evolving and improving its already admired vehicle design. On Saturday the 14th of March their popular B-Class vehicle will be revealed to the public at a special ‘facelift’ launch event hosted by local Umhlanga-based dealership NMI-DSM.P114_W246_CA_13_co_eps

The B-Class is ideal for those who lead an active and outdoor lifestyle and the newly upgraded version epitomises all an active individual would need. With LED high performance headlamps giving off a more powerful light, a larger display, keyless start button, collision prevention assist and an overall sportier look the B-Class is now even more equipped to handle all that life throws at you. The Durban public will be able to test-drive the face-lifted vehicle from Saturday onwards and experience these, and other, new features of the vehicle first-hand.

Also part of Saturday’s experience, will be big golfing brands Adidas and TaylorMade who will also have their latest gear ready to test-drive on the day. And to further highlight the B-Class adventurous lifestyle, is one of the leading names in mountain biking, PYGA Industries, who will be on hand to showcase their impressive bikes with two of their riders performing exciting technical displays at 10:00am and 12:00pm on Saturday at the dealership.

“What better way to reveal our newly facelifted B-Class than by showing our customers how much they will be able to do with this improved model. The updated and additional features will make for an overall better driving experience that is perfectly suited to the active lifestyle that many of our customers enjoy. The B-Class is the most reliable vehicle to handle life’s many adventures! Partnering with other big name brands like Adidas, TaylorMade and PYGA who are synonymous with adventure and being at the forefront of their industry, was an obvious fit. PYGA will be showcasing their OneTen29 custom build bikewhich will be on display at the ‘face-lift’ event for mountain bike enthusiasts to see, mounted of course on the back of the very impressive 2015 B-Class,” said Jarryd Smith, Marketing Manager for Mercedes-Benz Umhlanga.

Likewise PYGA Industries were excited at the opportunity to partner with Mercedes-Benz in celebrating the improved B-Class. “As one of South Africa’s top mountain bike brands PYGA has a similar philosophy to Mercedes-Benz. We also focus on design that is clear, calm, and consistent, yet emotional and highly sensuous. In essence, both Mercedes-Benz and PYGA Industries create functional pieces of art,” said Patrick Morewood, Founder of PYGA Industries.

Win Tickets to Milky Chance in Durban!

Published

on

Milky Chance recently announced their long-awaited return to South Africa with their “Living In A Haze” tour in February 2024 which will see them perform in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. The German Duo are excited to confirm that both Neon Dreams and Sean Koch will join them as support acts on the line-up for their shows in Cape Town (15 February) and Johannesburg (17 February), and Neon Dreams will also join Milky Chance in Durban (18 February) as support act.

Canadian duo Neon Dreams are no strangers to the South African music scene. Their 2019 single “Life Without Fantasies” reached the top of the South African viral charts amassing millions of streams in 2021 during the lockdown. The band connected with tens of thousands of fans online which led to their first sold out headline tour. They have continued to cement themselves in the industry here, having toured the country a number of times over the past few years and return in February 2024 to share the stage with Milky Chance in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban.

Sean Koch is one of SA’s most-loved indie-folk artists who brings a mixed bag of African and western, influence alongside messages of home, a connection to nature, the ocean and the people around him; to his storytelling, feel-good music. While rooted in his flowing-folk style, his music is diverse. From dance infused songs like ‘Lift You Up’ the standout single from his collection (including the Double MZK & G DOM remix) to the dreamier songs like ‘Feel the Energy’ that carry deeper messages of connection to the natural world and the people that surround us. There is something for everyone in Sean’s catalogue.

Milky Chance Announce Support Acts for Their “Living in a Haze” South African Tour This February

Philipp from Milky Chance is extremely excited for their return to South Africa and the tour has a special reveal as well. “It’s been way too long since we were over in SA. Back then it was so special for so many reasons and we really felt welcomed by the people. We have plenty of new music since our last visit that we want to share and we grew into the live band we always wanted to be. We can’t wait to play for the people in SA.’’

Milky Chance originated in Kassel, Germany, where childhood friends Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch formed the indie-pop band and rose to fame with their breakout folk/electronic hit “Stolen Dance” which reached #1 on the charts, was certified platinum in multiple countries and became one of the most Shazamed songs of all time.

Over four album releases, they’ve reached a massive global audience (7 Billion career streams, 13 million Spotify monthly listeners) and by going fully independent in 2021 have evolved to thrive in an increasingly precarious music industry, building an enviable touring resume (including festivals like Coachella, Reading & Leeds, and Lollapalooza) and an audience stretching from the US, Canada and Mexico to the EU, Australia, and beyond.

Their latest album, released in June 2023 on their own Muggelig Records, has already delivered over 500 million streams from 3 global hits – “Colorado,” “Synchronize” + “Living In A Haze” – and allowed the band to embark on their biggest-ever North American tour weaving their way across 65 cities including iconic venues like Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater.
