As of about 07h30 this morning 35 lucky party-goers who had made their way through an extensive, multi-platform print, broadcast, online and social media campaign– together with their partners – are travelling from Johannesburg to Durban on one of three, pimped-out Miller Dark Horse Exodus party buses making their way down to the Miller Dark Horse Marquee Powered by 5FM at this year’s Vodacom Durban July.
During the month of June, 5FM listeners were given the opportunity to enter an online Miller Dark Horse Exodus competition in an effort to win a coveted double ticket on one of the party buses. Entrants were directed to the Miller SA website (www.millersa.co.za) and had to decipher clues via Facebook and Twitter, which – once solved – earned them points on a virtual horse racing leader board. Those with the highest amount of points were awarded the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of taking part in the Miller Dark Horse Exodus as well as automatically qualifying for two nights’ rock-star accommodation in Durban, two VIP tickets to the Miller Dark Horse Marquee Powered by 5FM as well as return flights and transfers.
I’ve been on one these buses and they come complete with rave lights and stripper poles- it’s going to get rowdy. Travelling in convoy and also covering the approximate 600km over an eight-hour period together with the buses – will be six MINI Coopers. The buses and cars will be making a few pits stops along the way to fuel up and pick up some mystery guests (celebs) – the Miller Dark Horse Exodus promises to be a wicked jol. In fact, for those making their way via the N2 to the Vodacom Durban July – hoot three times when you spot the Miller Dark Horse Exodus and join in the fun! Alternatively, you can show them any part of your body not normal seen by the sun…
The Miller Dark Horse Marquee Powered by 5FM, spanning over 5,000 square metres, this year includes a VIP lounge, a gourmet food court, show-stopping entertainment – including live bands, top-class local DJs, a central dance floor and a host of experimental activities, is definitely the place to be at the 2011 Vodacom Durban July- its gonna cook.
