On Saturday, 11th January 2014, as the thunder of hooves pounding the turf subsides, a rhythm of a different kind will resonate throughout Kenilworth Race Course, Cape Town.
With the announcement of the electrifying entertainment line-up for the 153rd year of the prestigious L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate, guests are promised an evening of swaying and gyrating long into the night.
Sharing the stage with exceptional performers such as much-loved locals, DJs Euphonik and Fresh, is SA export to the UK, DJ Lora, famous for the elegant gowns she dons behind the decks, who returns to the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate for an encore to last year’s heart-stopping performance.
“What makes DJ Lora so perfect for the Queen’s plate is the way she brings together the elegance that epitomises the event and a fresh sound that will appeal to the next generation of race-goers,” says Katherine Gray, L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate Co-Ordinator.
A glamorous queen of dance, DJ Lora, has been mixing it up since the age of 20 and began to take the London club scene by storm after she was crowned the winner of Movida’s Corona DJ competition.
A captivating fusion of grace and grunge, DJ Lora has grown accustomed to performing at affluent events including Simon Le Bon’s 50th birthday party, exclusive Formula 1 parties, and even exclusive gatherings for Princes William and Harry.
With residencies in London, Dubai and Paris, this highly acclaimed international DJ continues to develop in prominence and reputation, with the likes of Sir Paul McCartney, Pete Tong, Kim Kardashian and Annie Leibovitz numbering amongst her many fans.
DJ Lora will take to the stage at 7:30 in the evening to kick things up a notch at the glitziest event on Cape Town’s social calendar and won’t stop until 11pm. Meanwhile, guests will also be afforded a variety of hospitality and culinary offerings, including the VIP 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, will be a not-to-be-missed opportunity to socialise in grand style, while rubbing shoulders with the elite of South African society and looking to take the Best Dressed and Best Hat honours.
Every second of the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate, from the moment the 16 thoroughbreds burst from the gates in a race for the R1 million purse, will be pure passion and adrenaline, with a soundtrack to match.
