As the chill of winter creeps in, Coca-Cola dome is undergoing an icy transformation of its own in preparation for the Disney on Ice extravaganza starting tomorrow the 21st of June; which is just one of the fantastic shows on the dome’s line-up of events!
The dazzling family-sized spectacular will once again grace Coca-Cola Dome’s arena as Disney on Ice presents Passport to Adventure from 21-30 June. Responding to the sold out shows of 2012, the management at the promoters have lined up a whopping 19 shows over 7 days and have improved the overall seating plan to maximise the fantasy journey.
The lovable classic characters Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Daisy will be joined by Disney’s fun-loving favourites from The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan and Lilo & Stitch. Explore the Pride Lands with Simba, Timon and Pumbaa; voyage ‘under the sea’ with Ariel; tour London with Peter Pan and Wendy before flying to Never Land; and travel to paradise to visit Lilo and Stitch in Hawaii.

Straight from the Netherlands, one of the world’s legendary dance events makes its debut in Africa as Sensation and Samsung Galaxy present Sensation ‘Innerspace’ on the 7th of September 2013. Working closely with local promoter G&G Productions for over a year, Commercial Manager of the Coca-Cola dome, Warren Green is thrilled to host an event of this magnitude at SA’s most versatile venue. “As the dome is the only venue in South Africa capable of hosting Sensation ‘Innerspace’, it is our great honour to be able to present this premier global dance phenomenon to SA audiences at Johannesburg’s most loved venue,” says Green.
Sensation has attracted more than a million fans in over 20 countries over the past decade and is expected to transcend everything local dance fanatics know about the electronic dance music scene with the one-night-only “spiritual and spellbinding” journey that is ‘Innerspace’. Be part of the “mission for unity” and dress in white – a well-known tradition of the Sensation brand.
