The Old Mutual Music at the Lake concert will warm Durban up on July 19 with Prime Circle at the Durban Botanic Gardens.

Prime Circle will be supported on the day by the equally sizzling Johannesburg indie rock band Shortstraw.

The 14-year-old group has been honing its live sound during multi-date tours of Europe and the United Kingdom, as well as a high-tech arena tour of South Africa. They recently won a South African Music Award (for best music video) for the single Doors off their sixth studio album, Let the Night In.

Old Mutual sponsorship manager Bandile Mngoma says they are thrilled to be welcoming Prime Circle to the botanical gardens: “ They have earned their stripes as South Africa’s leading rock act, and continue coming up with new and exciting soundscapes to keep their fans hooked and reel in new ones. Coupled with the energy and verve of Shortstraw, Durban is going to rock!”

Revellers are encouraged to bring cooler boxes, picnic baskets and blankets, or buy refreshments at the venue. Children will be kept entertained by the great activities at the Kidszone, while having the picturesque expanse of the botanical gardens at their disposal.

Gates open at 12h00 for pre-sold tickets (R140 for adults, available through and at 12h30 for on-the-day ticket sales (R160). Children aged eight to 12 pay R60; under-eights get in free. Shortstraw take to the stage at 13h30, followed by Prime Circle at 15h00.
