Cape Town Bike Festival 16 to 18 December 2011

Posted by: Ashley Brown
Cape Town Bike Festival



EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED!

A full-throttle celebration of two-wheeled wonders and everything that goes along with motorbike culture, the Cape Town Bike Festival (CTBF) will roar into life from 16-18 December at the Cape Town Stadium.
And what´s more, not content with merely tearing up the neighbourhood flower beds, the CTBF will be desecrating the Cape Town Stadium turf as the internationally-acclaimed Masters of Dirt bring their death-defying stunts to the party.



A sensory feast full of hi-revving hi-jinks and elements of expo, festival-goers can expect the heady rush of exhaust fumes, a cacophony of international and local music acts, daring dirt bike extravaganzas and, just in case you suffer from good-time memory loss, tattoo artists are there to make their indelible mark.

The first and largest festival of its kind in South Africa, the CTBF isn’t just aimed at bearded men in leathers - although if you’re lucky you might just bump into some of them - instead, the CTBF will be a cultural fix that aims to attract not only the biking fraternity- the beats, broads, beefhearts and boneys, but additional music fans, families and visitors from around the globe.

Set to become an international highlight on the South African events calendar, this three-day festival starts with a breakfast run daily and ends long after sunset.



During daytime festival hours, the custom-built racetrack will be used for Junior MX, Scooter Races and Supercross while South Africa’s Super Motard Champion, the legendary Brian Capper, will be performing stunts to the collective gasps of the crowd.

After dark, the arena will be transformed into an pulsating pyrotechnic production by the world famous ‘Masters of Dirt Freestyle Show’ and top rock and electronic music acts


SEETHER TO ROCK BIKE FEST



International rock sensation, Seether, will headline the music bill at the monumental Cape Town Bike Festival which takes place at the Cape Town Stadium, 16th-18th December 2011.

The first of its kind in South Africa, the Cape Town Bike Festival (CTBF) combines the world of motorbikes with live entertainment, unique product displays and daring dirt bike extravaganzas including the international Masters of Dirt team, over three epic days.

Seether´s unique brand of post-grunge rock, meanwhile, will be one of the highlights of the entertainment offering at the CTBF and will have fans roaring for more with their hits such as “Fake it” and “Rise Above This”.



Formed in 1999 (originally known as Saron Gas), Seether quickly gained prominence in SA’s rock world with their debut release, “Fragile”, becoming one of the best-selling titles of the year, resulting in Seether emerging as a top live band.

Now based in the U.S., Seether made their initial impact on American rock charts with their 2002 album “Disclaimer” and, following a career that has spanned nearly a decade, the power trio of lead singer Shaun Morgan, bassist Dale Stewart and drummer John Humphrey have toured the globe on the back of five Gold and Platinum-selling albums.
