the Dome the place for International Stars and Entertainers, standing room for five thousand people, only problem is seating. due to the large audience the price of tickets are well affordable with plenty parking at the adjacent Northriding Shopping Mall. traffic officers are always on duty to control traffic and security guards to watch your vehicle. Always well organised.

Probably the best thing to ever happen in Johannesburg for art lovers. Viewed the premises with hype and kept wondering how electric the atmosphere can be with a live performance.

Excellent, slick performance. Acoustics were excellent, ushers to show you to your seat, enough food, drinks, well arranged overall but for the seating. Good, ample parking - don't mind paying for this as it is well arranged and managed. Easy to access the dome and traffic from shows flows easily, Complaint: For 2 hours + (except for a short interval)... More

Situated about 40 kilometres from the city centre, the dome is a majestic architectural masterpiece from outside. The insides, are even better. Most updated indoor stadium, the stage in the middle of the stadium with a ramp is marvelous! The big audio-visual projections on screen almost everywhere adds to the sheer excitement of the performance on stage.

The BET experience MADE my year, all my favourite in one room was more than what I could ask for. The music and sound was audible and the quality was good. The regular breaks in between performances were impeccably timed. The food and beverage stalls were easily accessible too.

I attended the Pharrell Williams Show last night, The Dome is still best for shows and events. Parking was available and the attendance by the security guys was good and we were escorted accordingly. The sound was great, Air conditioner was working perfectly. Overall I was impressed and happy about the Show and the service :-)

This year the seating was much better than previous years. More than enough food stalls & merchandise was readily available. I do think it was very overpriced. R90 for popcorn is daylight robbery! Ample parking available by the mall. Dome parking is more expensive & it's quite a walk especially the pedestrian walkway is not elderly friendly - or even... More

The dome has various events on from trade shows to concerts. I recently visited again for the Disney on Ice production. The venue is fine - though acoustics are not great. plenty of food vendors so even at interval, queues are not bad at all. Don't go tot he paid parking - this costs R20, and means you get stuck...
