Get ready to play!

There are less than 30 days to go until FunderLand! The first-ever event of its kind promises 11 days of non-stop fun, from illusion, mystery and magic to music and dance, through to high-tech and gaming.

Launching on 28 March 2018 at the GrandWest in Cape Town, the FunderLand Festival and Kidz Expo will be jam-packed with over 25 different Fun Zones, including the Extreme Tech Zone and the African Cyber Gaming League’s presence. Whether your child’s passion is robots, dinosaurs, gaming, cooking, sports or computers, FunderLand is ready to fire up the imagination from colourful Lollos and the cheeky Bop Boppers to the cheerleading routine of the DHL Stormers Girls. Circus-style acts will amaze both the young and the young at heart.

Prepare to be entertained by leading SA talent across our many stage shows with a handpicked entertainment line-up, which includes the infamous Russel Fox, known as “Magician Insane,” the freestyling comedic soccer trickster Kyle Rinquest, in addition to Steven Winter from The Winter Sessions, beatboxer Benji Man, Loki Rothman, Desmond Wells, Stephan Visagie, Nic Stevens, Nadia Louw, Shaun Tait, Quinton Prinsloo, Burger le Roux and Elvis impersonator James Marais.

Add to this incredible line-up FunderLand’s partnership with the African Cyber Gaming League, who will present the ultimate AfrESports gaming zone for competitive gameplay across all ages and all levels. South African IT and Creative Technology brands will be present; look out for the famous MakerBot and witness your favourite gaming character being printed in 3-D right there.

In addition to all of the fun and games, is the launch of the biggest talent search platforms South Africa has ever held, namely the FunderLand Talent Search and the FunderLand Mzansi competition, the finalists of which will battle for the title on the FunderStage in December 2018.
