Launching in KZN soon is a brand new drive-in concept brought to you by Impi Concept Events – the creative minds behind South Africa’s longest-running festival, Splashy Fen.
Parkflix is set to be a modern-day take on the classic drive-in experience, allowing attendees to enjoy not enjoy films, but an array of live music, standup comedy and performing arts and even will even double up and function/event concept.
The team has been working hard to provide a way for the local event industry to stay afloat, “right now, there is a need for innovative and creative thinking in our industry,” says Stu Berry of Impi Concepts, “and we’ve been working around the clock to create feasible new outlets for fans, artists and workers within the entertainment field.”

“As a company, we have worked hard over the years to secure our place as the foremost live outdoor entertainment providers in KZN. This allows us to provide three separate venues to existing and new fans in order to meet everyone’s entertainment needs in the best way we possibly can under the current conditions.”
We are extremely excited to be launching Parkflix, in association with Splashy Fen, and working closely with the government to get the concept up and running as soon as we can.”Stu Berry – Impi Concepts
So far, three locations in Hillcrest, Durban and Umhlanga have been earmarked for the shows and will ensure that attendees can enjoy different forms of entertainment at a Parkflix drive-in experience while adhering to social distancing and safety protocols. Their drive-in concept will also be available for church services, educational productions, weddings and even funerals.
Depending on the venue, up to 250 vehicles can be accommodated at a single drive-in with attendees arriving in their cars and tuning in via their FM radio sets for full audio.
While Impi Concept Events have not confirmed an official launch date for Parklife just yet, they are currently working closely with various government departments to make the concept a reality.
