Firestone Karaoke Kombi

The Firestone Karaoke Kombi (#FirestoneKK) campaign will involve two Volkswagen Kombis. The two Kombis – one a classic 1972 VW Brasília kombi and the other one brand new ¬– convert into mobile karaoke studios. Fittingly, the Brasília kombi is host to the large catalogue of old-school songs, while its newer sibling features the best of new school karaoke songs.

Behind the scenes, a team of audio technicians record each performance and upload it to the Internet, before sharing it via mobile message with the singers and their friends.

Firestone remains one of South Africa’s most popular tyre brands and one of the best-known, as it has been a feature on South African roads since 1936. It is the pioneer of the popular Tyre Damage Guarantee (TDG), which replaces a damaged Firestone tyre for only the cost of the tread used on that tyre.


The Rugby will be screened on the main stage!
17:05 – South Africa VS England
