Free tickets to a famous NYE party + R12 000 giveaway

Party into 2023 at SA’s iconic dance festival, now in Cape Town for the first time

Last updated: 23 December 2022 

Want free tickets to Cape Town’s mega New Year’s Eve party? Held in Joburg for the past 23 years, H2O NYE will be happening for the first time in Cape Town this year. Enjoy electronic and techno acts and a beach stage at The Ostrich (an amazing new events space, thanks to a recent makeover). Plus, there’s a R12 000 giveaway.

The usual festival experience involves dirty feet and stinky toilets. Not at the Ostrich Ranch. The events space has had a full makeover and is now known as The Ostrich Cape Town. This brand new venue is here to make your partying more enjoyable – 55 flushing toilets have been installed (no more smelly plastic porta potties baking in the sun) as well as a "beach" area with sand, hammocks and day beds.

With various bar areas, a VIP terrace and Dome area, the venue provides the ultimate open air day-club setting where you can celebrate under the sun and under the stars. H2O NYE is a day to night event: start your party early with an afternoon at Ostrich Beach, then go into full party mode at sunset.

This year, the beach area has been built right next to a dam. Image: H2O NYE 


There’s two stages: the main stage will be playing EDM, while the beach stage will be for techno-heads. Internationally-renowned Juicy M, known for her high-energy mixes, will be headlining the show and playing the countdown set. Famous local artists will also be performing, like Kyle Kassim, Max Hurrell and Jordan Arts, as well as local favourites Mia, Minx, Dean Fuel and Gremlin. 

Get in the party mood with one of Juicy M’s live sets:



While stocks last, you can get free general access tickets (usually, these cost R250 - R450). The Freedom Pass was created after Covid-19 to give people a chance to enjoy festivals again – and this year, H20 is giving away Festive Freedom Passes. There’s also a giveaway worth R12 000, where you can win 8 VIP tickets (which includes a VIP table near the main stage, one spirit bottle of choice and 12 mixers, a bottle of bubbly, six beers and a Moti hamper of EarPods and vapes). Enter the giveaway. Not feeling the odds? Get your Festive Freedom Pass instead.

H2O NYE is sponsored by 5FM, Moti and Heineken.

Guaranteed free tickets - no chance required (while stocks last). Image: H2O NYE


H2O NYE is happening: 31 December, 2pm - 2am
Find it: The Ostrich Cape Town | Van Schoorsdrif Rd |  Philadelphia
