THE RISE OF THE GEO DOME
The GEO Dome is an event venue located in the hearts of Soweto, South Africa. Its capacity is approximately 10,000 (3000 under roof 7000 on the sides). The GEO Dome to be launched on the 1st of April 2018 is the brainchild of a young South Afrcan visionary, Tim Hogins. A visionary who always see the richness and beauty in our communities.
Kwaito Music emerged in Soweto and Kwaito artists now will be afforded the opportunity to perform first at this unique venue. These talented artists will literally step into the GEO Dome.
This is not an accident but an intentionally done approach by GOG Gardens Soweto in response to a very interesting debate that recently surfaced on whether Kwaito is dead or alive. In support of the South African musicians, Tim Hogins believes Kwaito is not dead and that people still love Kwaito considering that it forms part of the beautiful Soweto Culture. He believes music can revive the peaceful and great Soweto vibe that is slowly fading away due to lack of venues that accommodates big music festivals. The GEO Dome is a solution to that! It also aimed at encouraging talent in our communities and to ensure that Soweto regain its leading position on tourists’ attraction.
The Dome is designed to accommodate different music festivals, schools, churches and many other organised structures and events in the whole world. South Africa, finally has its own International standard outdoor Dome and that is GEO Dome based in a historical area, Soweto our home. Who said that the market that enjoyed Kwaito is not hungry for such events? Surprisingly Kwaito fans still own cassettes and would be delighted to be seen dancing for their stars in the presence of their children while spending time with their loved ones. The GEO Dome is well placed within the GOG Garden Soweto, an atmosphere which caters for all age groups.
The Rise of The GEO Dome is a family event to be staged on the 1st of April 2018 from 12:00pm – till late. Do not miss out on this unique event aimed at bringing back family outings for the betterment of our children and community at large.
Definition of Geo Dome:
A geodesic dome is a hemispherical thin-shell structure (lattice-shell) based on a geodesicpolyhedron. The triangular elements of the dome are structurally rigid and distribute the structural stress throughout the structure, making geodesic domes able to withstand very heavy loads for their size.
