Explaining the 'attraction' of the venue, Warren Green, Commercial Manager of the Coca-Cola dome, says, "We are the largest indoor arena in South Africa, with over 11,000 sqm of uninterrupted space, and we boast a roof which is 42.25m high. This means we are capable of accommodating large stage structures. This is often an advantage for many international events who present complex extravagant performances."
The venue boasts flexible seating structures, which means that for each special event, the Coca-Cola dome is able to tailor-make the audience experience. Attie van Wyk, CEO at Big Concerts, says, "We have configured the Coca-Cola dome for anything from 8,000 to 18,000 people."
The venue's pillar-free space ensures that the Coca-Cola dome can accommodate various different types of events. During July the venue hosted the globally successful Disney on Ice skating spectacular for the third successive year. The weight of the Disney on Ice set is a staggering eight tons, the painted backdrop is over 70 metres long, and it includes a castle which is 10.9 metres tall!
The Coca-Cola dome hosted the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games Africa Regionals for the first time and we were able to accommodate all
their monster gym equipment. For a few days the venue was a home for ring towers, climbing frames and chinning towers and the fittest athletes in the region.
The world-famous DJ Armin Van Buuren's Intense tour plays at the best venues in the world, and in South Africa the Coca-Cola dome hosted this exclusive live performance. "The fact that we were selected to host this prestigious international concert emphasises that we are a truly versatile venue, capable of managing top acts and unique events," says Green.
Due to the excellent reputation within the events industry, and backed by an experienced management team, the Coca-Cola dome will be showcasing top international artists to entertain various audiences in Gauteng. This includes The Fray, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Kenny G and John Legend. In August we're going to be celebrating women's month with two of the biggest neo-soul and R'nB artists - Jaheim and Anthony Hamilton, supported by local group, Mafikizolo.
