What is the nightlife like in your country? Let me tell you in mine it’s fun, wild but I’ve nights I’ll never forget in other countries too. Ibiza is wild (obviously), London has a lot on offer and because of the efficient public transport system you don’t need to worry about partying too hard and then how you’re going to get home. Botswana surprised me a lot and as for Las Vegas? Well what can I say. This American city has some of the best clubs I have ever been to. The decor is incredible and the ambiance is spot on. In South Africa we have cool clubs, but the one thing we have to offer that a lot of other countries lack is the Djing talent. We’re spoiled for choice and I think the big boys inspire the up and coming stars, who are constantly being pushed to try new things, techniques all while making good quality music.
Now you’re probably wondering what brought this up; why on earth I’m rattling off about nightlife in our respective countries, so early on a Monday morning. Well there’s a method to my madness. The world’s leading vodka bran, Smirnoff has a new campaign on the go. It’s ‘The Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project’. 14 counties will be participating in this campaign, in which ideas, elements and highlighted features will be shared among each other. All of the acquired elements and highlights will come together on the 27th November, when the world will swap nights and nightlife experiences.
How will this work? Well you are being encouraged to make your suggestions on the official Facebook group on anything you think is important to raise about your nightlife experience. The local expert in each country will note these. There will also be parties in and around those countries, in which suggestions will be placed in ‘crates’. Those will then be added to the Facebook suggestions and in October the participating countries will exchange crates. In South Africa, the two experts are no strangers to the nightlife scene. They’re of the FeU brand ie DJ Fresh and Euphonik. “It’s an honour to be asked to represent something as huge as The Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project. In the last year or so I’ve had the privilege of travelling to Miami, London, Ibiza and New York and from what I’ve seen, South Africa has more to offer than the rest of the world anticipates and being part of the team responsible in exposing that is an amazing feeling.”
So a few things to note:
– Make yourself available for the party on the 27th of November. It’s going to be massive no doubt.
– Apart from South Africa, USA, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Germany, India, Lebanon, Poland, Thailand, Ireland, Great Britain, Australia and Venezuela. Looking at the countries listed above, I would love to exchange a night with the Brazilians or the Argentineans. From what I saw during the world cup, we would be in for a massive night!
– Make your suggestions. As I said, with the caliber of djs we have in this country, that would be one of my highlights. Plus I’m sure there will be loads of prizes, possibly even trips to the respective nations going, so you could win big!
