The highly anticipated Durban July event, held annually at the Greyville Racecourse, has stirred
disagreement on social media, with some Twitter users labeling it a “cult gathering.” The prestigious
horse racing event, known for its glamour and fashion, has drawn criticism from individuals who claim it
promotes a cult-like atmosphere.
Critics argue that the excessive nature of Durban July, coupled with its exclusive guest list and luxurious
dress code, creates an environment that promotes elitism and exclusion.
However, defenders of the event argue that Durban July is a celebration of South African culture,
fashion, and horse racing heritage. Supporters emphasize the economic benefits brought about by the
event, including increased tourism, job creation, and a boost to the economy.
