Behind the scenes at the Cape Town Met…

It was indeed a great feeling to manage the technical production and stage of Cape Town’s first big live event after the Covid 19 pandemic – the 2022 World Sports Betting Cape Town Met.

The brief from our client, Donovan Everitt at Cape Racing, was very clear: Build and manage a stage that sits at the heart of the entire event. The logic was compelling and this central stage would be right next to the Winner’s circle and the Glam Garden. It would transform the Met experience for racers and spectators alike by providing a central place for all prize-giving and interviews, and for the famous best dressed competition.

Kilowatt conceptualised the stage and all the elements of the technical production in December 2021.

Once the racing was over, the stage was transformed into a world class production line up, with a lazer show, sparkulars and dancers provided by The Sunroom. And what a show it was! There was a star-studded line up of performers and DJ’s:

– DJ West
– Ron Rowley
– Funky G
– Abby Nurock
– Goodluck (Main Artist)
– Dean Fuel
– Zakes Bantwini (Headliner)
– Desiree

A kind thank you to Chase Liebenberg for lending us a pic of the winner of the WSB Cape Town Met title – KOMMETDIEDING. And last but certainly not least, a very big thank you to our team and our client, Cape Racing, for helping us set the bar very high for the next event!

P.S. If you are curious to understand what Kilowatt can do for your next event, whether in our Connect Studios or at an in-person event, please drop me a line.
