ELANGENI EVENTS AND ENTERTAINMENT ARENA
The Elangeni Arena is hosted at the Power Park Dam is an old cooling dam for the now decommissioned Orlando Power Station in Soweto.
Orlando is a famous political landmark in Soweto being the home of Nelson Mandela and Walter Sisulu.
Their neighbour was Nobel Peace Prize winners Desmond Tutu, then a little known Anglican reverend! And most notorious of all on June 16, 1976, Orlando saw the killing of school students by the police and the famous 1976 riots down Orlando main street, now site of a multi million rand apartheid museum.
IN 2006 the Spiced Gold Beach Party was held at the Beach at Elangeni Arena.Completely overgrown and unused, the overgrowth was cleared, 400 tons of beach sand laid down, 26-foot yachts were launched and a host of Caribbean style bars were built along the “seashore”.
The overriding theme of this parkland and entertainment development will be a celebration of the music and social character of the Sowetan people.
