40 weeks of non-stop celebrations as SunCity hits #TheBig40

Life begins at 40. And when you’re one of the biggest escape destinations in South Africa, this culminates in 9 months (40 weeks) of birthday magic and one massive birthday bash. Launching the #Big40 plans to the media last week, we were given a glimpse into what can be expected in the build-up to Sun City’s 40thbirthday in December.

What’s planned?

Held at the decidedly glamourous dance club, Encore, the launch event was a spectacular medley of rich African culture, music, dance, good food and wine. A violinist, completed the entertainment for the evening. Breathtaking in her fairy-light adorned gown, she dazzled the audience with her performance.


Raul de Lima, Sun City’s General Manager, hosted guests and spoke about the vital role the resort and casino had in the community. Much of the entertainment of the night were by local artists from the impoverished towns around the acclaimed leisure destination.

“The Big Birthday Bash will be the crescendo to nine months of thrilling activations that will take our guests, employees and other stakeholders on a journey of celebration and nostalgia. These include music shows, golf tournaments, gaming promotions and other exciting experiences,” says Raul de Lima, Resort General Manager at Sun City.


The full line-up for the December main celebration will be revealed at the end of May 2019, with tickets set to go on sale on the 01 June. It’s set to be an explosive event with exceptional local artists, who reflect the diversity and depth of talent available in South Africa.

Sun International’s iconic Sun City, has undergone an ambitious multi-million rand refurbishment to revitalize its iconic appeal and ensure it retains its rightful place as South Africa’s entertainment mecca.
