More than 1 000 people are expected to attend the Summer Jam event hosted by Social Clash on Saturday at McArthur pools, with musician Jeremy Loops as the main act.
He will be joined by Dayne Beunderman, Richard Saunders, Renaldo Gouws, Nick Burgers and Warren Dawson.
Cape Town-born Loops, who describes his music as modern folk, said fans could expect high energy songs with some classics from his latest album, Trading Change.
“I make music that inspires and motivates me. During my one-hour set, my fans can expect new material, which I am working on at the moment.” Social Clash, known for hosting hip and happening parties, hosted the first Summer Jam in 2013, featuring Jack Parow.
“I love coming down to PE. It took us a very long time to play our first show there late last year. I was impressed by the people’s energy, they are really friendly and welcoming folks.” Loops says he always makes it a point to have fun when he is on stage.
Organiser Renaldo Gouws said under-18s would only be allowed under their parents’ supervision.
“They will also get a different wrist-band to show that they can only be served non-alcoholic drinks,” Gouws said. Doors will open at 4pm. “A tent will cover the entire area so, come rain or shine, the event will take place.”
People can get tickets online via quicket.co.za or at Sasol Summerstrand or at McArthur pools before the event.
Pre-sold tickets are R80 for general admission and R200 for VIPs. At the door on the night of the event, tickets will be sold at R100 for general admission.
“Unfortunately no VIP tickets will be available,” Gouws said.
