The XBOX SUMMER FEST will visit 12 of the most popular holiday destinations along the South African coastline between Durban and Cape Town from 15 December to 5 January.

The popularity of this line-up nationally is aptly demonstrated by the current and recent chart-topping success of singles on 5FM: The Parlotones’ “Giant Mistake” reached number 1 on the Top 40 and Hi5@5; Wonderboom’s “Best Side” reached number 1 on the Hi5@5 and featured in the Top 40; The Black Hotels’ “Natalie” and Driverlane’s “Regular Flavour” both reached number 1 on the Hi5@5; and Crash Car Burn’s “Serenade” featured on both the Top 40 and Hi5@5.
