History of Castle Lite Unlocked Experiences

Castle Lite has really been gushing out some major experienced over the years which have undeniably been memorable by far. This year they will of course be bring Travis Scott and Bryson Tiller to JHB and PLK but HYPE just wants to back in time and highlight some unforgettable Castle Lite experiences that we have witnessed with our very own eyes.

2011 – Drake

Castle Lite really started the crazy experiences when they brought down Drake for an all-white concert in 2011. About 4 000 people had an experience to remember at the Castle Lite Feel the Beat of Subzero Experience in Johannesburg South Africa, where hip hop heavyweight Drake was the headline act. That wasn’t the only highlight of the night as over 2 000 members of the crowd were dressed in white for ‘No Regret Friday’ which was later confirmed to have broken the world record with the World Record Academy for the most people dressed in white for a cause. It’s interesting to remember that the Drake concert came to life after a viral petition started by local South African celebrities Dineo Ranaka, Slikour and T-Bo Touch encouraged fans to sign it up in order to bring the superstar to Mzansi.

2013 – Kanye West

In 2013 Castle Lite brought down one of the most awarded artists of all-time and musical genius Kanye West, whose lyrics have become the soundtrack of our generation. Kanye West really needs no intro for you to understand the magnitude of this experience that found a cult of South African fans jamming out to Yeezy live in a winter. Kanye was the headline act for that unforgettable night at an exclusive and intimate Castle Lite Feel the Beat of Sub-zero Experience on the 2nd of February 2013 in Joburg which consisted of about 6 000 guests enjoying a mind-blowing experience and engage with Castle Lite on another level through live acts and innovative touch points that Castle Lite brought forward.

2013 – Wale

2013 was the year Castle Lite developed their reputation for being “Extra Cold” through bringing down Wale for an Extra Cold experience. During the date of the summer solstice, which is the longest day of the summer, Castle Lite decided to make it the most unforgettable day of the summer by announcing their Extra Cold Summer party and having Wale as the headlining act country alongside a host of SA’s best local artists.

2014 – Nas, Timbaland & Wiz Khalifa

Castle Lite unlocked summer here when they hosted one exclusive summer experience that kept the heat at bay through the entire day & night festivities. Listen, there weren’t any dull moments when the likes of Beatenburg, DJ Kent, Black Motion, DJ Milshake, and many more brought the heat.

2016 – J. Cole
