It’s Time to get Sizzled once again!
We see you, Sizzlers. We know you’re looking to have a good time, especially during the festive season. Don’t be scared: December in Cape Town is a lifestyle and you’re bound to be out and about. If you were caught up on the dance floor last year – or even on footage – then you sure know what SIZZLED is all about.
If you were sleeping on us, we’re here to give you all angles including close ups. SIZZLED is a food and music festival that takes place on Boxing Day each year at the Castle of Good Hope in Cape Town. Born six years ago, it’s one of first events of its kind that grew up to become hugely successful in the name of Cape Town music. On the Day of Goodwill, show your inner good Samaritan by joining your fellow Sizzlers for a summer festive turn up.
As far as tradition goes, SIZZLED has become a well-recognized brand in its own right. If Aunty Mearle’s Christmas trifle simply didn’t fill you… then these satisfying beats surely will.
This year, we’re fully committed to bringing you a brand new, fresh and creative experience while still staying true to our roots. A SIZZLED on steroids. A SIZZLED 2.0, if you will.
KEEPING UP WITH THE ‘SIZZLERS’
We know you loved watching us ring in our coming of age, since 3000 of the Mother City’s creatives, stompers, music lovers and tourists alike round up to join in on the sizzling fun. Everyone’s welcome, it doesn’t matter what your shower playlist consists of.
This is an all-inclusive event, diversity is a major key. PG Alert: You’ll have to be 21+ to experience the bass and beats. If you’re around the 65 mark, don’t stress, yes you CAN sit with us and join in the fun.
With many talented local DJs and live acts, we’ve heard your call with a big focus on local music: exposing you to fresh, new local acts who will be making their on-stage debuts. SIZZLED has the correct platform to introduce you to new names in music, you’ll have the opportunity to fall in love with music unlike any other sound you’ve heard. These acts are creatives with potential, who will be entertaining centre-stage in the Mother City, the place with the world’s best backdrop: Table Mountain.
Remember keep an open mind (and ear) to the new voices and add them your must-follow list!
The music line up has been carefully structured to give the Sizzlers a fresh musical and festival experience. With a plethora of genres, we aim to serve a music line up that is completely unconventional, different, unique and entertaining.
ZONING IN ON THE ‘SIZZLED FACTOR’
Experiences are how events are made noteworthy and memories are cherished. SIZZLED offers an experience to remember with a fusion of experiences and diversity that people have come to know and love. We’re here to offer the sizzled factor and welcome you to our family, whether you’re a regular or new to the scene.
IF YOU HAVE THE MUNCHIES…
Keep your cashless card handy for this. As SIZZLED was one of the first festivals to focus on food trucks, we’ve kept your favourite gourmet foodie trucks and added some interesting new ones too.
We’ve drawn country names out of a hat, okay no, we didn’t. But when you’re hungry, you can bet we catered to bring you the best cuisines from every corner of the world. Thai, Mexican, South African and more. We offer our consumers and visitors quality in terms of delicious, finger-licking flavours.
Food won’t be the only thing you can splurge your December bonus on. Quality is what you look for when shopping and this is exactly what you’ll get. Expect to take home the finest locally-crafted, handmade goods by the best local designers.
We promise our Sizzlers a safe, fun experience in an aesthetic environment to enjoy from mid-afternoon to when the stars twinkle as the bass kicks in.
