Tuks FM, the university’s radio station in association with Budweiser, is having their brand relaunch rooftop party on the 25th of May at 012 Central on the Prinschurch rooftop.

The party will be starting at 18:00 until 01:00, featuring performances by deep house DJs DJ Loko, Abby Nurock, Leeu and Mvelo, who played at Mieliepop. The party is hosted by Summerhouse and King of communes.

TuksFM, well known for its alternative and rock and roll style, is working towards a relaunch of its brand. From April, the radio station has undergone full format changes, including the launch of an all new programme line up which aims to cement the radio station’s new emphasis on being “for the youth by the youth”. These programme changes have already started on the 1st of May. The new programme features Hip Hop Nights, a whole hour at 18:00 on Wednesday evenings dedicated to the hip hop scene locally and internationally. Another one of the new segments is an hour of Locals Only on Tuesday 18:00.

“Tuks FM wants to reach the youth of Pretoria by providing music and programming that is relevant to them. We are now playing a mix of Hip Hop, EDM, Pop and alternative music. This is much more accessible to a wider audience than has been the case before. We are sending the message that we are for the youth, by the youth,” Mike Bower the Tuks FM’s programme manager said.

Hard copy early bird tickets can be bought from TuksFM representatives. Tickets at the gate will be sold at R100. You can check their Facebook page for more information and details.
