THE jam-packed line-up of artist who will be performing at the South Coast Bike Festival 2018 has been announced.

Organisers Wozani Africa released a statement naming some of the county’s top musical acts who will be performing from April 27 to April 30. Wozani Africa’s Vicky Wentzel said the popular biking event is presented by Ugu South Coast Tourism with endorsement and support from Ugu District and Ray Nkonyeni municipalities.

“The South Coast Bike Fest 2018 talented line-up has escalated to incorporate a reflective melting pot of genres and colourful array of artists,” said Wentzel.

She said they have specifically created a rock element of hand-selected bands, voted for by the motorcycle fraternity, to rock the Jack Daniels Rock Stage, 12 hours a day throughout the festival.

Wentzel said a tremendous amount of detail has been put into selecting the line-up across the programme to cater for every person who attends.

“The Carling Black Label Main Beach Stage themes will change daily and big-name artists will be appearing at different festival venues, finishing off the set with a colourful Bollywood vibe on the final day. Organisers have also arranged for a third line-up of artists set to feature on the jazz and reggae decks, adding street busking, marching bands, street hip-hop, dance and even acapella to the mix, and this is truly a not-to-be-missed music festival.

“The Jack Daniels and Carling Black Label stages will reverberate with the sounds of South Africa’s finest bands, singers and DJs: Belville-based Unit 11; “sleeze” rockers, The Sinners; alternative rockers, The Color Blew.

“We will also give the audience a glimpse of local talent, with Circle of Stones, a four-piece hard rock and blues band from the South Coast. Karen Zoid, winner of Best Female Artist award at the 2008 South African Music Awards (Samas) will also be there, as well as the Springbok Nude Girls.

“On Saturday afternoon, the Carling Black Label Main Beach Stage will welcome Doowap, a sound engineering graduate with a love for bass-driven music, and Sama nominated Kyle Deutsch. Other act not to be missed include Aewon Wolf, Sketchy Bongo and Timo ODV.

“On Sunday, a number of headline artists will perform, such as Chunda Munki also known as Blayze Saunders, and Aden Hinds and many more,” said Wentzel

Those attending the Party on the Move will get to enjoy music by legendary DJs including DJ Fresh, DJ Bruce and Michael Zuma. Midday Shandis DJ LeSoul, together with her fellow Gagasi FM anchors Felix Hlophe and FlyMotion, will also be there.
