Pulsating. Electrifying. These will be the words on everybody’s lips at 9:30pm on the evening of Saturday, 11th January 2014, when legendary South African music maestros DJs Fresh and Euphonik (F.eU) take to the stage together at the 153rd L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate.
The entertainment line-up for this prestigious event also includes hit SA-to-UK export, DJ Lora, and promises to keep race-goers partying late into the night.
Returning to tear up the decks once again after his mind-blowing performance last year, DJ Fresh brings one of South Africa’s most successful young dance DJs, Euphonik, along for the ride.
“We are confident that F.eU will inject even more fun and excitement into this event with their exceptional and internationally acclaimed musical skills,” says Katherine Gray, L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate Co-Ordinator.
By now a household name, Fresh has been livening up the South African airwaves since 1997 with his unique brand of good music and sense of cool. With over 20 house albums under his belt, Fresh is no stranger to electronic music and has shared the decks with a number of international acts including Armand Van Helden, Paul Van Dyke, Frankie Knuckles and Fat Boy Slim around the world.
At his side will be one of South Africa’s most sought-after DJs, DJ Euphonik, a performer who Mail & Guardian lists among its Top 300 young South Africans. With his rare ability to jump easily between high-end Sandton gigs to gritty Soweto street parties, Euphonik says, simply: “I play music for the young and young-at-heart South African”.
These princes of the night will play at this, Cape Town’s swankiest social calendar event, until 11pm on Saturday night. Meanwhile, guests will also be afforded a variety of hospitality and culinary offerings, including the Stud Club, wine bars, and various picnic areas.
With its strictly blue-and-white dress code, the Queen’s Plate, sponsored by L’Ormarins since 2005, is the ultimate opportunity to socialise in true style and dress to the nines in a bid to win the coveted Best Dressed and Best Hat accolades.
And once the 16 thoroughbreds thunder onto the turf in a race for the R1 million purse, the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate at Kenilworth Racecourse will erupt into a flurry of heart-pounding passion, with a soundtrack to match.
