South Coast Bike Fest 2018

South Coast Bike Fest 2018 Gets The Green Light

The KwaZulu- Natal South Coast’s sub tropical Paradise of Margate is again the host destination for the annual South Coast Bike Fest™ which is considered as Africa’s premier motorcycle enthusiast and music festival which is to take place from 27th – 30th April 2018.

The inaugural 2017 event, which grew on the tradition of previous biking festivals in Margate, attracted a record number of close to 60 000 festival visitors and an impressive set of headline and fringe musical acts that created an almost Caribbean ambience and relaxed fun filled vibe.

The event set along the palm fringed beachfront boulevard of Margate hosted a melting pot of cultural diverse stages from jazz, rock, headline contemporary, reggae, Afrikaans, street buskers, marching brass bands, trade vendors, pop up food villages – all set to the backdrop of the ever present, proud and leisure loving bike enthusiasts that travelled from around Africa to attend the famous resort town’s seaside festival.

The event is presented by Ugu South Coast Tourism with endorsement and support from Ugu District and Ray Nkonyeni Municipalities.

CEO Mr. Justin Mackory was pleased to announce that, “the 2018 South Coast Bike Fest™ has been fully endorsed by our Board and it is all systems go for the biggest event on our tourism calendar.”

“In 2017, we introduced South Coast Bike Fest which exceeded all expectations – Margate and the greater South Coast is clearly the biker’s choice to have that ride to leisure break and enjoy the top class entertainment and bike related activities.”

“We anticipate that 2018 festival will be truly great with bikers and the public having a splendid time on the South Coast”.

All pre-registered motorcycle riders & pillions will have free access to the entire event precinct including main stage headline artist performances.

The non biker public will be charged a very nominal fee of R60 per day to enter the event precinct with full access to the 3 main beach festival stages, beachfront boulevard themed bars, street entertainment, demo rides, trader, expo zones, stunt shows, food courts, EnduroX staging arena’s and all associated motorcycle enthusiast festival activations including the ever popular mass ride. Certainly one of the best festival bargains around.

Accommodation establishments are already reporting massive influx of bookings over the event period and according to festival partner Peter Snyman of Club Leisure Group “the 2017 South Coast Bike Fest™ ran at full occupancy levels throughout our KZN South Coast properties and we are already experiencing energetic earlier bookings from within the motorcycle fraternity for the 2018 event.”

Pre registration for the biking community and limited pedestrian ticket sales go live on the 1st November 2017. To book your vending site, submit your band or for general enquiries contact Vicky Wentzel on 0828127944 or email
