The 2020 Sun Met will take place at Kenilworth Racecourse in Cape Town on 1 February. Sun International has joined forces with some of the biggest names in music, fashion and entertainment to ensure a perfect 2020 vision for the Sun Met.

Music


Africa is home to future kings who will take over the world, and Black Coffee is certainly living up to that moniker. “Africa Is Not A Jungle” featuring host and creator Black Coffee will provide the perfect soundtrack to the Sun Met 2020 experience.

Joining him on-stage will be the highly acclaimed DJ who is making waves in international waters, Themba (formerly known as Euphonik) and this year’s DJ Awards Electronic Music Awards – Ibiza 2019: Best Afro House DJ, Da Capo.

Fashion


Joining the Visionaries for Sun Met 2020, Sun International is proud to announce a collaboration with the King of Creativity, Trevor StuurmanStuurman will bring his unique interpretation of African design, culture and visual aesthetic.

Having travelled to many countries in and around Africa, he aims to capture and encapsulate “Your Africa” in a visually immersive storytelling format. These stories will be shared with the world to experience on social media and will inspire the viewer to share their story at Africa’s Richest Race Day.

Masa Mara joins the fashion narrative to offer an immersive tale that will elicit passion and courage in the wearer and portray the creativity inspired by sights found only in Africa. Imprint ZA’s flamboyant, brave and bold creations reflect our African roots whilst displaying the uncapped potential in this continent.

They will be joining the fashion roster alongside Palesa Mokubung who has revolutionised the fashion industry as an African forerunner who paved the way for future African designers collaborating with international retail giants.


Entertainment


The leading ladies of groove, Courtnaé Paul and Holly Rey, have taken the centre stage as burning stars in the entertainment industry. Courtnaé Paul – who rose to fame as a dancer, choreographer and a master on the decks – will cook up a killer set that speaks to the visionaries of this age, who know how to get down on the dance-floor.

Sama-winning artist Holly Rey is passionate about preserving the sounds of South Africa through house music. She has forged her own path in the music industry and aligns with the theme for this year.

Basel Grey joins this star-studded host of visionaries after creating the Sun Met 2020 soundtrack “Do You”. Queen of luxury Bonang Matheba and “Global African Influencer of the Year” brings all the glamour to Sun Met with the House of BNG MCC as the official celebration partner.
