Speaking with journalists, Marcel Swain, marketing head at Heineken South Africa, described the festival as “a vibrant celebration of good times, connections, and the joy of shared experiences”.

He said the festival is “not just about music for Heineken”, but a way to celebrate the beer company’s 150th anniversary.

Nabil Nasser, the global head at Heineken, said: “Heineken exists to spark connections beyond barriers. We are therefore proud to partner with the Hey Neighbour festival with the ambition of turning strangers into Neighbours”.

The festival is to be held between December 8 and 10, at the Legends Adventure Farm in Pretoria.


5 common mistakes Lagosians make during Detty December




Another Detty December is upon us, and it is in everyone’s best interest to prepare well for it.

Even though we have written about what to expect, some people are foolhardy – that’s why we are warning you of the pitfalls.

If you have an event by 6 pm, leave your house by 4 pm because you are going to be caught in the throes of traffic. You can stay in a traffic jam for 30 minutes, meanwhile where you want to go is just five minutes away.

In December, everything is expensive, even transportation. It’s better to sit down in your house and manage your money than go out and disgrace yourself.

Unless it’s for Johnny Drille, or Pulse Fiesta, never go early to any Nigerian concert, they will most likely start at least four hours late.

If you go to any concert, do not complain, because you will have complaints.

If you don’t have a car, don’t have too much fun and forget you have a home to get back to. Before they close all your estate gates, and you are left out in the cold.

We get it, the year has been tough and long but don’t drink yourself to a stupor and embarrass yourself and the members of your family, especially at your office parties. If you pass out and someone steals your belongings, you won’t be too happy now, would you?

With these few points of ours, we hope you have resolved to have fun but within reasonable limits.
