Say goodbye to 2017 in style whether you are in Joburg CBD or nearby. 

The City of Joburg is making this year’s festivities all about you with some of the South Africa’s popular and diverse music artists.
 
Joburg’s rich diversity of cultures will once again be on display when the annual Joburg Carnival and New Year’s Eve events takes place on 31 December 2017.
 
The Joburg Carnival has become a tradition that celebrates the City’s reputation as a melting-pot of different cultural traditions. The carnival will start at 12h00 from Hillbrow, Kotze Street, allowing residents and visitors to take part and enjoy. The event calls for Joburgers to take pride in their city and come together to celebrate its pulsating energy and diversity.
 
The procession moves from Hillbrow, through the streets of inner city, along Rahima Moosa Street (previously Jeppe Street) into Newtown at the Mary Fitzgerald Square precinct. The carnival will end at 17h00.
 
The very popular and much anticipated Joburg New Year’s Eve event will start at 18h00 and will feature two stages at Mary Fitzgerald Square and Newtown Park. Various genres of music including afropop, hip-hop and house will represent the eclectric rhythms and cosmopolitan mix of the people of Joburg that makes the city unique. Music artists will entertain the crowd and join them to party into the early hours of 2018.
 
Live performances will feature The Soil, Nadia Nakai, Bucie, Samthing Soweto, Euphonik, KO, Reason, Ms Cosmo and many more.
 
Cooler boxes, alcohol, hubbly-bubbly pipes, fireworks and weapons will not be allowed into the New Year’s Eve event venue. There will be a strong presence of law enforcement agencies to maintain law and order and Emergency Management Services will be present to attend to all emergencies on the night.
 
Please note that the M1 North and South will have two left lanes closed from 20h00 to 23h00 from Carr to Anderson Street. From 23h00 to 01h00 there will be a full road closure.
 
The City urges event goers, people of Johannesburg as well as the rest of the country to enjoy the New Year celebrations in a spirit of peace and safety, not to consume too much alcohol and to drive safely on our roads during this festive season.
 
ENTRANCE TO THE EVENT IS FREE..!!!
