JOHANNESBURG, Gauteng – The second edition (2019) of the VW Vivonation Festival music and lifestyle event attracted more than 5500 people over the weekend (April 6-7).

The stage hosted AKA, Shane Eagle, DJ Kent, Simmy, Rouge, Sjava, Sho Madjozi, Busiswa, Mlindo The Vocalist and DJ Zan-D and was, VW says, dwarfed by giant shipping containers.

The site was a maze of activity with a beach bar, graffiti car, Trace’s Silent disco, and an elevated viewing deck. The VW media release added: ”There was something for everybody and fans had the time of their life.


”The mass of dancing bodies soaked up the sun while letting go to thumping house and hip-hop. Various activation areas attracted throngs of people there to see and touch the new Polo Vivo, scream or laugh on Radio YFM’s hair-raising autocross track, or donning a costume and belting out tunes on camera from the driving seat.

”The prize was a Vivo road-trip weekend away.”

Meredith Kelly, VW SA’s marketing communications manager, told The Corner in a media release: ”We’re excited about the record turn-out at this year’s VIVOnation.”

The crowd was the best part of 1000 more than in 2018.

“While the Vivos and the line-up were hits it was the city we’ constructed within a container yard that made the festival unique. We also took the opportunity to unveil the brand new Polo Vivo Sound Edition (below).”
