There doesn’t seem to be much that PRIME CIRCLE can’t do well! They’ve got the countless awards; the sold-out local and internationals tours; the string of chart-topping hits and top-selling albums! They have stood the test of time as one of South Africa’s biggest and best rock bands over the past 17 years. And they’re now launching their own music and lifestyle festival, Prime Fest, on November 10 at Casalinga in Muldersdrift.
When PRIME CIRCLE started this new journey with the release of their most recent album, If You Don’t You Never Will, the band decided that it was time to make their dream of starting their own music festival a reality. With the help of some friends, they managed to put together a powerhouse of musical acts.
The festival, in association with Jacaranda FM, will feature a wide range of artists that the band have come to love sharing the stage with. The line-up will include some of SA’s top acts across a variety of genres from rock to rap to dance in English, Zulu and Afrikaans. Riky Rick, Majozi, Jo Black, Mafikizolo, GoodLuck, Fokofpolisiekar, Timo ODV and Martin Bester and Band will join PRIME CIRCLE on stage.
“We are so excited to bring Prime Fest to our fans. This festival is not a show about us. It is about giving our fans and music fans an event where we have the artists who love to play music and entertain and have combined it with an outdoor experience. Casalinga is the perfect location for this event, as they are no strangers to hosting great outdoor and lifestyle festivals,” says PRIME CIRCLE frontman, Ross Learmonth.
Festivalgoers will be spoilt for choice on the day. Apart from the star-studded music line-up, there will be a wide range of food stalls, an AMG Driving Academy Extreme 4×4 Experience presented by Mercedes-Benz (the festival’s sponsor), children’s play area and many more activities for the entire family.
And the cherry-on-the-top will be the launch of their own beer, Prime Lager (through Nobleman Breweries), at the festival.
PRIME CIRCLE is made up off Ross Learmonth (vocals and guitar); Marco Gomes (bass); Dale Schnettler (drums); Neil Breytenbach (keyboard) and Dirk Bisschoff (guitar).
Gates open at 10am and tickets, from R240 per person, will be available from Computicket.
