• OMODA, the official vehicle sponsor of the KZN Summer and Ballito BIG Week festivals

  • OMODA C5, the official vehicle of artists and organisers.

  • Daily double tickets up for grabs for anyone who spots the branded C5 in Ballito and the North Coast

It wouldn’t be summer without the Ballito BIG Week and the KZN Summer Festival. And it wouldn’t be the hottest ticket on the festival calendar without OMODA.

OMODA has joined the festivities in Ballito, KwaZulu-Natal, as the Official Vehicle Partner to both music festivals. This means that it will not only support the various music events but also drive the music stars to and from Sugar Rush Park.  

The Ballito BIG Week starts this Friday, and the festivities end with a massive New Year’s Eve event on 31 December and the car of choice for all the fun and festivities is the OMODA C5.  

The OMODA C5 is the current flagship in the OMODA range. It represents everything that has made OMODA a global hit among vehicle buyers looking for a sporty SUV that breaks the mould yet delivers on all the features that have made sport utility vehicles so popular.

OMODA designed the OMODA C5 as the first model to follow its fashion-forward “Art in Motion” design language. As such, the model features a diamond-cut geometric matrix grille and notably eye-catching 18-inch dual-tone blade wheels. 

The dual-tone theme continues with the roof design, with darkened B- and C-pillars that visually separate the roofline from the muscular body and create a dynamic profile unlike any other SUV on the market.

Inside the OMODA C5, the driver and passengers are spoilt with a long list of luxury features, including dual high-resolution digital screens, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and an Intelligent Voice Command system.

“OMODA is the perfect brand for the next generation of vehicle buyers. These buyers value a unique design that is both fashionable and futuristic,” says Tony Liu, Deputy General Manager of OMODA Brand O&J.

“We believe that the OMODA C5 perfectly represents the OMODA spirit and is therefore a perfect fit for the KZN Summer Festival and Ballito BIG Week.”

The Ballito BIG Week kicks off on Friday, 22 December with a massive music spectacular headlined by the Afro House sensation, Shimza. He will be joined by a jam-packed roster of artists, including Lemon & Herb, Argento Dust, Sun El Musician, Culoe de Song and Thandi Draai.

On Tuesday, 26 December, the legendary Black Coffee headlines a second music festival that includes Caiiro, Son of Dennis, Enoo Napa and Mat Elle, to name but a few.

The fun continues on Wednesday, 27 December, when the fleet of OMODA C5 models will drop off Jeremy Loops, Will Linley and the ever-popular Goodluck at Sugar Rush Park for the first of the Ballito Live events.

Not done yet, the third Ballito BIG Week concerts will kick off on Friday, 29 December with superstar DJs, including Blxckie, DBN Gogo, Mellow & Sleazy, DJ Lag, Whitesoul and others. 

The fun reaches a crescendo on New Year’s Eve when global stars GoldFish will rock Ballito. They will be joined by the Saxby Twins and Neon Dreams for the perfect start to the new year.

“G&G Productions are proud to welcome OMODA as the official vehicle partner of Ballito BIG Week and the KZN Summer festivals in Ballito this December.

“The two festivals are in effect five premium one-day festivals attracting a wide mix of South African and International music lovers and holiday makers. Our approach of offering a premium experience is perfectly aligned with that of OMODA, and we are excited to develop our partnership further in the future,” says Greg Walsh, the Founder & CEO of G&G Productions, the organisers of the two music festivals.

To crown its support of the two music festivals, OMODA has branded a number of OMODA C5 models that will cruise through the streets of Ballito and the wider North Coast during December. 

Anyone who spots one of these stunning SUVs can take a picture of themselves with the OMODA C5 and post it on Instagram with the tags @ballitobigweek, @kznsummer and @omodasouthafrica. OMODA and G&G Events will pick one lucky winner every day to win a set of double tickets to one of the music events.
