Margate – Some of South Africa’s top award winning artists will be joining the crowds at one of the country’s largest motorcycle rally’s, Harley-Davidson® Africa Bike Week™. The annual event kicks off on Thursday, 28 April to Sunday 1 May, attracting families, H.O.G® members and riders from all over South Africa.
Margate will be home to the Harley-Davidson® Africa Bike Week™ for the third year in 2011. The event attracts young and old who aim to unleash their Harley-Davidson® gene through a unique lifestyle experience that goes far beyond the iconic Harley-Davidson® motorcycle.
This year visitors can expect to be enthralled not only by the sounds of thousands of motorcycles but with the cool sounds of award winning local artists including Prime Circle, NARANJO, Christian Heath Band, LUDIK, Jon Delinger, Die Heuwels Fantasties, Van Coke Kartel, Black Era, and Flies.
“We have taken special care in ensuring that the entertainment is top notch and is suitable for the whole family,” says Africa Bike Week organiser, Martin Engelbrecht. “Bands will perform on two arena’s – the Harley® Village main beach arena and at the Tennessee Aftermarket arena which will transform to a DJ venue in the evening taking guests well into the night with sultry summer tunes.
Harley-Davidson® Africa Bike Week™ will allow visitors to participate in the largest Harley-Davidson® mass ride out in South Africa, watch stunt shows, take free demo rides, shop at the Harley® markets and view the newest Harley-Davidson® motorcycles, accessories and Harley-Davidson® and H.O.G® merchandise.
Following the success of Africa Bike Week™ for two consecutive years we are excited to be hosting the event for the third year running,” says Engelbrecht. In 2010, over 12 000 Harley-Davidson® motorcycles and 80 000 enthusiasts congregated in Margate over the four day period. This year we anticipate even more fanatics and riders; we have planned some exciting activities that aim to leave people talking way after the event. A mass ride will take place on Sunday, 1 May from the Shelley Centre to Port Shepstone where we anticipate 3000 riders to take part,” concludes Engelbrecht.
