About the Last Dance Music Festival

Initiated in 2010 as part of the FIFA Soccer World Cup celebration, this 2 day event now runs as the biggest New Year’s Eve Festival in the Empangeni area.

Over 20 live DJ’s and local music acts entertain hordes of party goers on the last evening of the year, where the festival continues on New Year’s Day with a family beach picnic.  This festival attracts approximately 50 000 festival patrons, so if big parties are your thing, this is for you!

The proceeds of the event are used to improve the state of local communities.
