Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project South Africa – Berlin And Cape Town Swap

MyCityByNight had the pleasure of being the first to hear who the sister city to South Africa was in the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project yesterday at the Grand Cafe and Beach in Granger Bay. Just another average day in the life of semi-famous bloggers really 🙂

THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE YOUR CONFIRMATION, HERE IS ALL THE INFO YOU NEED ON WHO IS COMING AND WHAT ITS ABOUT! We’ll let Smirnoff tell you where it is and other stuff as they asked us not to say 😀 Just wait and see though, you wont be dissapointed!

Those of you following us on Twitter would have been the first to get the scoop on our adventures and seen who was chosen as the peeps in charge of keeping us grooving way into the night at what is going to be the best party that South Africa has ever seen…

Thats right MCBN’ers! The home of techno is coming to South Africa! No wait, not just South Africa.. TO CAPE TOWN BABY!

Here is the moment when the sister city for the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange was said to  be… BERLIN! (us getting nice and cosy with Fresh & Euphonik)

A huge congratulations has to go out to the likes of local act Gazelle for being chosen to represent South Africa out in the friendly city of Berlin 🙂

The venue for the party is still to be anounced (we’re hoping for the likes of Thunder City at the Cape Town International Airport amongst some jets or even inside the massive CTICC), but we were told that wherever it is, it is sure to be converted to everything that is Berlin! Now I have been to Berlin and I have been to the legendary Love Parade, twice, and let me tell you, THEY KNOW HOW TO PARTY!!!!!!! And on top of that Berlin has just been voted as the 5th most beautiful city in the WORLD!

They wouldn’t reveal too much as they wanted to keep some things as a bit of a surprise (even from the everywhere like air MyCityByNight), but as an example, they said that for SA going to Berlin, the venue there will have hair braiders, boerie roll stands and maybe even a taxi and car guard or two- basically all things Cape Town and South Africa. As we get more snippets, we will be letting you know!

Now the part you all want to know more about- the talent coming to Cape Town…

Ladies and gentlemen, the aural pleasure coming to Cape Town for the Smirnoff Nightlife Experience are none other than ATB, Markus Schulz and Monika Kruse.


With no less that 38 albums to his name, André Tanneberger, commonly called ATB, is a German DJ, musician, and producer of Trance music, oh and lets not forget… LEGEND! According to the official world DJ rankings governed by DJ Magazine, ATB was ranked #11 in 2009. He is also ranked as world number 4 according to “The DJ List.”
With old school commercial classics like You’re Not alone and Till I Come, ATB is sure to tear up the dance floor in CT!

Over the last 10 years Markus Schulz has fused the individual musical identities of progressive house & trance into his own creative and now inimitable hybrid sound. Following several highly ranked positions, in 2008 Schulz punched his way into the Top 10 of DJ Magazine’s Top 100 chart, landing at no.8. In repeating the exact same achievement in 2009, he now stands, quite unequivocally, as America’s no.1 club DJ.

Monika Kruse has cooking dancefloors from Chicago to Berlin and Tokyo since 17 years. Besides her DJ acitivities the native Berliner follows her own idea of Techno Funk as producer, party host and label impressario. “Music just makes me happy,” is how Monika Kruse explains her energy level.

Monika Kruse has played an active part in german club culture since 1991, starting as resident in the Munich based Parkcafé and as a member of the Ultraschall Crew.

          blade aka shebin \\\ |3–>>> ///

          1. Yes you need to book and arrange your own flights and accommodation unless they told you otherwise.

  28. Hi All,

    I have spoken to the super powers that be and anyone that has won a ticket, unless you have been told your flights etc included (apparently an elite few) you need to organise yourself flights and accomadation.

    Also, they have promised all email will be answered.

    See you Saturday!


  29. Morning Stacky. How u doing today babes? I’ll be sure to look out for u Saturday (no doubt). And the reason why I’m wearing just a bikini bottom is to show off my new Boobs… OMW cant wait just 2 more sleeps.

    1. HOLY SHIT, I am doing great now! You? Great start to the morning! Run us through the colour of the bikini, and what else to look for… apart from the 34C’s 😉 Hahahaha!
      So I assume all your flights and accommodation sorted? Who you bringing with you?
      Seems like there are loads of flights and places to stay for people coming from out of town. Thought it would’ve been more of a logistical nightmare than it has been!

    2. @Judy – Ahem… I’ll be there too… and my moustache- thats gotta count for something 😉

  30. Hey Guys….Mwah

    Colour bikini…(Yellow). the friend I’ll be brining with she is…, well I was always told to always take a extra toy with incase your new one plays HARD to get” .. if you get my drift

  31. Hey can’t wait for saturday so what can i wear waht do Berlin peeps wear?


    1. anything short, revealing and made of leather or pvc 😀
      or they just wear nothing, depends really 😀

      1. @ Stacky…you would probably prefer the last option.I did some research n they normally wear really normal clothes.

        @ missperfect…in the name of fun, just roll with whatever. make an impression,go big and don’t give a shit

  32. Wish they can send the sms they promised already. I’ve booked my flights all thats left is accomodation. I need an idea of where the Jol will be so i can book close to where the event will be at.

  33. Has anyone received any details about tomorrow yet???
    It’s after 12pm and the event is tomorrow, they can’t make uas wait even longer man!
    Stacky be a sweetheart and see what you can find out for me pwetty pwease 🙂
    At least time so I know when to pick up my friend

  34. And what about venue???
    I need to know since I have to be there at 8pm, can Stacky in his briliance give us a venue so we know where to arrange accomodation and to work out travel time and sort out maps and whatever else we need?

    1. Seriously????????????
      At least it’s close to home…i could always crawl if the legs decide they’d had enough

  35. Stacky deserves a big, wet, luscious MWAH!
    Remember when you said we’ll come looking for you?
    You bet your brilliant butt I’ll find you and pay up…
    It was wishfull thinking before but now you’ve proven yourself worthy…;)

    1. hahaha! i like to read this thread to check all the blatant flirting going on! its the best! well i’ll take the pictures of anything luscious giving Stacky all sorts of “rewards” 🙂

      1. At least he won’t be able to say we just used him for what we could get. Hard work deserves to be rewarded after all… 😉

  36. Cant wait for tomorrow! gonna be epic 😀 it at bellville velodrome??
    also dress-code please..
    see ya’ll at the party of the year!

  37. It’s at the Bellville Velodrome @ 8pm. Just got my ticket.
