SA Top musicians to rock Jeffreys Bay

AFRICA’S biggest motorcycle, music and leisure lifestyle festival – Bike Fest SA –will kick off its five-stop 2020 tour of South Africa’s most rocking venues, with the Jeffreys Bay Bike Fest from February 28 to March 1.

Being so much more than a bike fest, audiences can look forward to a melodious line-up of South Africa’s most talented musicians who will be taking to the Bike Rocker Main Beach Stage throughout this family-friendly festival. The event is not restricted to South Africa’s biking elite, but is open to everyone in the mood for some high-class entertainment!

“For the 2020 Bike Fest SA tour, we are not only extending the venues countrywide, but also extending the festival programme so audiences can expect a host of new musical acts, and extreme stunts, as well as recreational and retail offerings suited to all interests and tastes,” said event organiser, Vicky Wentzel – owner of Wozani Africa Events and co-founder of Africa Bike Week and South Coast Bike Fest. “We are really excited to announce the incredible Jeffrey’s Bay Bike Fest™ musical programme which will keep festival-goers rocking all three days.”

Musical highlights

Audiences looking for some rap/hip-hop will find the right mix as award-winning Early B takes to the stage at 21:00 on February 28. Having worked with prominent industry figures – including Grammy-award-winning producer, Darryl Torr – his dynamic (predominantly) Afrikaans rap style has seen him rising in the charts.

Another South African taking the hip hop world by storm is Port Elizabeth-born artist, Biggy, at 18:15 on February 28.

For some country/blues with a South African twist, Roan Ash (February 29 at 20:15) is currently one of the country’s hottest properties.

The past two decades, the South African pop music scene has been dominated by award-winning band, Mean Mr Mustard (February 29 at 17:15).

Joining them are fellow musical legends, WONDERboom (February 29 at 13:15), still rocking 23 years after first appearing on the scene.

Then, for the best of Afrikaans pop, festival-goers should look out for the Anton Botha Band (February 29 at 22:15), a SAMA- and Ghoema Award-nominated musician.

Continuing this genre is the bearded icon, Jo Black (March 1 at 13.45), who left a life in construction to build his formidable career in music. If that is not enough to get the engines revving, Jeffreys Bay Bike Fest welcomes the guru of Afrikaans rock music, Koos Kombuis, at 19:15 on February 29.

Old fans can reminisce, while new fans will be inspired by the raw sounds of this music le-gend.
