100% Retro: The Party

Following the incredible reaction to 100% Retro: The Party at the DHL Stadium in Cape Town, there is good news for upcountry retro fans. The globe's biggest retro party is coming to Pretoria!

100% Retro The Party has been confirmed at SunBet Arena Time Square for 13 January 2024! 

Are you ready for the biggest retro party ever in the Capital? 100% Retro: The Party features the largest contingent of popular international dance acts and DJs from the 80's and 90s ever assembled in South Africa.

100% Retro: The Party is presented by Jacaranda FM with an A-list line-up that will strike an immediate chord with 80s and 90s music lovers and bring back some of the best memories of their tenure in that sublime musical era. 

Performing live on stage: Technotronic, Snap!, Dr Alban, Haddaway, Twenty4Seven, 2 Unlimited, Rozalla as well as one of SA's most popular artists Nádine, and a host of international and local 90s DJs, including Barney Simon, Alex Jay, Ian Fraser and Shawny B.

Who remembers 'I've Got The Power' and 'Rhythm is a Dancer' - songs that made Euro dance group Snap! world famous. The same rings true for Technotronic's 'Pump up the Jam' and 'Get Up', which were just two of their many global hits. Their songs still have a huge presence on the playlists of major clubs around the world and they are still entertaining music fans of all ages.

Daisy D from Technotronic can't wait and is super excited about the 100% retro live show: "Finally in SA and you better be sure… It will be the hottest show ever in Pretoria."

Do you remember Rozalla? As soon as you search for 'Everybody's Free' on music apps you will! The Zimbabwean superstar gives the 8-hour show a unique African touch.

Among the hits that made the other artists famous are 'It's My Life' and 'Sing Hallelujah' by Dr. Alban and Haddaway’s 'What is Love' while Twenty4Seven still rocks a party with 'Slave to the Music' and 'I Can’t Stand it!'  2 Unlimited will bring great memories with 'Get Ready For This' and 'No Limit'.

"Being part of this incredible line-up and extraordinary show in beautiful South Africa is something I'm really looking forward to," says Trinidadian-born Dutch singer Haddaway.

Well-known South African singer Nádine will pay tribute to Tina Turner, Sinéad O'Connor, Whitney Houston, and more. She says that she is delighted: "Bringing their smash hits in a remake that fits the style of the 90s is a superb challenge... I am looking forward to entertaining thousands of retro lovers!"

"The music and artists we are bringing to South Africa represents a big percentage of music fans and, dare I say it, middle-aged party animals who feel somewhat neglected when it comes to the 80s and 90's events and parties," says Shawny B, one of SA's most popular and versatile retro DJ's. 

"It's unlike anything that’s been staged in South Africa," says Barney Simon, who will also be one of the MCs and DJs at the party. "It's fresh and left field and I have no doubt a lot of 100% retro-music fans are getting excited reading this and thinking: finally!"

Retro expert and co-presenter of the 100% retro, Alex Jay, explains the groundwork: "The organizers have done extensive research, and the 100% retro concept serves a very strong market niche of music lovers. It's going to be the party of all parties to kick off the year. We are super amped. Come and join us and FEEL YOUNG AGAIN!"
