Each of the showcasing acts will offer a unique sound and energy catering for all dance music lovers and H2O fans over the past two decades alike. The two decade H20 musical journey will be narrated across 6 dance arena’s and will feature various different types of dance music to cater for two generations of fans.

Memories, moments, magic and some of the best times of our lives! This event is going to encapsulate 20 years of party history, nostalgia, 20 years of dance, this will for sure be one of our most special events, it’s definitely not one to miss!”
