The President of Castle Lite’s Republic of Extra Cold, Pearl Thusi, has finally revealed to her citizens exactly what they can look forward to come 28 December 2019 when the Republic descends upon Cape Town’s Atlantic Ocean and the iconic, V&A Waterfront.


“I’m so happy to finally share with our loyal citizens, what they are in for at this year’s Republic of Extra Cold as we take over the Atlantic Ocean and the V&A Waterfront, bringing Castle Lite’s sub-zero chill to Cape Town summer,” said Pearl Thusi.


The Republic will travel in style as it journeys into the Atlantic aboard luxury yachts, jet skis and of course, helicopters. This will be the entrée to what is set to be a day of extraordinary experiences.


“Once in the Atlantic, the Republic will witness a spectacular musical performance right in the middle of the ocean by a special guest star. This surprise hit-maker’s performance will be staged on a floating ice stage that will surely have the waters beneath approaching sub-zero temperatures,” Pearl also revealed.


The President also revealed today that she and her team at the Republic have created a custom-made Cold Room to make sure that no citizen is left in the heat. This area of the experience will give everyone an extra cold chill vibe like only Castle Lite can, with the all-new Castle Lite 250ml which stays extra cold till the last drop.


All of this while the Republic’s star-studded line up keeps the citizens entertained all through the experience. The Republic’s Minister of Beats, Ayanda MVP announced last month that not only will she herself be performing, she will be joined on the stage by 2019 Minister of Drip, Boity Thulo as well as Youngsta CPT and DJ Lyle holding it down for the Hip-Hop heads. Serving up the coldest summer House, Gqom and Amapiano hits will be renowned hit-maker, DJ Zinhle and radio superstar, DJ Loyd. Citizens whose summer anthem is a mashup of Dance and Electro music will also feel right at home as Das Kapital, Pascal & Pearce, and Gremlin SA take things to subzero temperatures on stage.

The experience will culminate in a spectacular laser show which will illuminate the Cape Town sky line and mark another successful year in the Republic of Extra Cold. And just to make things a little more epic, Castle Lite has some fun surprises in store for citizens.

Citizens can look forward to the once-in-a-lifetime experience of going on a helicopter ride and experience the exhilarating heli-flip. And as if that’s not enough, Africa’s biggest premium beer brand has promised to give every citizen who bought a ticket free beer for a year!


“The Republic of Extra Cold is literally going to be the most epic experience of summer 2019. And just to make sure that this year’s Republic is a memorable occasion, anyone in Cape Town can also win beer for a year by spotting the Republic of Extra Cold’s Atlantic convoy, taking a picture of it and sharing on social media using the #RepublicOfExtraCold hashtag,” Pearl said.


The Republic of Extra Cold will officially open its doors for registration at 15:00 on the 28thof December. Citizens are advised to arrive timeously for passport collection and use the designated parking at The Lookout located next to the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.
