The Parlotones take to the stage on Saturday 12 August for a good cause when they join several great local acts for #pumpforpeace Pretoria taking place at the Wolwespruit Mountain Bike & Trail Park. Tickets available from Webtickets.
The Parlotones released their ORCHESTRATED DVD earlier in 2017 and Parlotones frontman Kahn Morbee released his 2nd solo album ‘A Noise In The Void’ early July. The Parlotones will headline the event alongside Karen Zoid (who features on Kahn’s brand new album on the single ‘We Could Be Divine’), and are joined by Desmond & The Tutus, Tidal Waves, The Black Cat Bones, and The Sweet Resistance for an exciting day of live music at #pumpforpeace Pretoria.
In the spirit of the initiative – celebrating music as well as an active lifestyle – the Pretoria #pumpforpeace event will kick off with a MTB enduro race at 8am. World-renowned downhill rider Claudio Caluori will be racing on the day and riders can test their grit in the race against his time. Claudio is known for his infamous Red Bull Bike / GoPro course previews and is also the founder of #pumpforpeace.
THE CAUSE: All proceeds will support the revival of music and sport initiatives and charities in disadvantaged communities as well as the construction of new pump tracks, with further shows ready to roll out in Joburg, Cape Town, and Durban in 2017/2018.
