Check out the great locations and full line-ups Global Breakthrough have planned for next month in Cape Town.
After months of scouting for locations, Global Breakthrough have finally confirmed the locations for their two weeks of club action in Cape Town. Forget dark and sweaty clubs, these events are taking place in fantastic locations such as an aquarium, an old zoo, a winery and a secret beach. Can't get much better than that.
Global Breakthrough happens in Cape Town from February 17 to March 3, 2007. If you're looking for an early alternative to Miami this year, you'd be hard pressed to find a better club destination with DJs such as Steve Bug, James Zabiela, Norman Jay, Âme, Lee Burridge, Cass, Mark Knight and Clive Henry all confirmed to spin.
RA is an official Global Breakthrough media partner so check back for updates and further details.
Here's the full lowdown on the eight parties:
WELCOME SUNDOWNERS @ CAFE CAPRICE
5pm - 10pm
Ease your way into the first night at this waterfront bar on the trendy Camps Bay beach strip. Watch the sun set over the Atlantic as Notting Hill favourite Norman Jay provides the beats. Good times, indeed!

GLOBAL UNDERGROUND & DEFECTED @ OPIUM WAREHOUSE & COURTYARD

Follow the crowd as the party moves up the road for the Global Underground warehouse bash with Lee Burridge. Take a breather at the Defected party in the adjoining courtyard where DJ Spen spins deep and soulful and local hero Dino Moran mixes up house and Afro-beat.
