The launch of the Hollywoodbets Durban July has caused quite a stir in Durban, South Africa. Renowned graffiti artist Shaun Oakley, also known as “Damn Vandal,” grabbed attention by unveiling the event’s spectacular theme through a daring billboard vandalism stunt.

What initially appeared as a mischievous act turned out to be a stunning artistic expression by Oakley. The billboard, located on Sandton Drive in Johannesburg, became a vibrant canvas during peak hour traffic on Monday, March 18th. Oakley’s bold graffiti transformed the space into a captivating portrayal of this year’s Durban July theme, “Ride the Wave.” His artwork skillfully captured the essence of the event, blending elements of horseracing, fashion, and entertainment to ignite imagination and inspire onlookers.


Stephen Marshall, Gold Circle’s Events and Marketing Executive, described the 2024 Hollywoodbets Durban July as a wave of sound, greetings, emotion, and change. He highlighted the evolving experience of the event, from the music to the excitement of horseracing and the social spectacle that accompanies it.

Devin Heffer, Hollywoodbets’ Brand and Communications Manager, expressed pride in partnering with Africa’s Greatest Horse Racing event once again. He emphasized the significance of Durban’s coastal setting, with its stunning Golden Mile, as the perfect backdrop for this year’s theme. Heffer noted that the fusion of fashion, entertainment, and thrilling horseracing at the event will create an unforgettable experience. He urged everyone to mark their calendars for July 6th, when Hollywoodbets Greyville will host a day filled with excitement that will reverberate across the country.
