Between 2009 and 2012, Pretoria was the unknowing witness of what can best be described as a Temporary Autonomous Zone. A temporary creativity conducive space that eludes formal structures of control. HOTBOX STUDIOS was started as an experiment which, against all odds, blossomed into a free and open venue where hundreds of like-minded people congregated and somehow created a beautiful, organic and slightly deranged bubble in space-time. Since then, many of those who were present have moved on to accomplish great achievements in the worlds of music, art, fashion and business. For many, a straight line can be drawn back to that magical time when the free folk of Pretoria joined together and celebrated their youthful dreams.
On 11 November 2017, HOTBOX STUDIOS will be attempting to recreate this madness for one last time. The legendary house is being sold and the founders were able to secure this venue for a LAST HURRAH, a final send-off. The line-up of 6 bands and 3 DJ’s is being kept a secret but knowing the reputation of the venue, those who attend are bound to be blown away. Tickets are R500 per person, which includes entrance, an open bar as well as a bite to eat. Gates open at 16:00 and the party will go on until the cops show up or the last man falls. May God be with us all.

Time: 16:00 – Until the cops shuts us down!
