Ballito, are you ready? Your favourite Jeremy Loops is back… and after a non-stop whirlwind global Waves Tour, he’s better than ever and back for more of the Ballito party! Join him, and 3 000 local fans on Friday the 22nd of February at the Sugar Rush Park in Ballito for another evening of foot-stomping, beat-boxing, looping lyrical genius.
Bringing, fun, entertainment and outdoor family-time to an already community-based lifestyle in Ballito, locals can once again look forward to an evening of fun at the first of the Marriott Ballito Beats concerts for 2019. Great music, good company and delicious food and beverages on offer, not to mention a host of activities for the little ones at the recently revamped Sugar Rush Park venue. It’s a date!
This year, the beats keep on coming, as 2019’s stellar line-up will have fans booking their spot on the grassy lawns well in advance. Jeremy Loops, Watershed and more of South Africa’s top talent are set to bring their musical magic to the crowds.
“There’s just something about Jeremy Loops that excites a crowd.” Says Stu Berry, Ballito Beats Series Director. “Clearly, there’s also something about Ballito that excites Jeremy – as he and his uber-talented team return for a second time to the Marriott Ballito Beats Series. Tickets are selling out exceptionally fast so we know that Jeremy is a firm favourite among Ballito locals and we can’t wait for another great Friday night show.”
Jeremy Loops arrived on South Africa’s music scene with an unexpected force, debuting at No. 1 on iTunes in 2014 with his very first album, Trading Change. Relentless touring from early 2014 to the end of 2016 laid the foundation for the next level. Waves, the first single from his latest untitled album, is a woozy summer song, with Loops’ signature guitar licks, vocal turns and melodies. After spending most of 2018 travelling to Europe, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, he’s back in sunny South Africa and he’s making a pit stop just for Ballito locals this February.
Mali Zulu is a talented young musician, born in a village on the outskirts of Stanger in the beautiful grassy plains of Northern KwaZulu Natal. He grew up singing in school choirs from Grade One and went on to make the Top 31 in the 10th season of South African Idols. Following Idols, Mali secured a record deal, writing and singing his own songs. A musician at heart, Mali has performed in some of the most beautiful venues in South Africa, The Rock Music Bistro, The Lions Festival, The Dutch, Westville Fair, MiTH (Music in The Hills), Splashy Fen and now, Ballito.
Sally Anderson, Head of Marketing at Marriott is thrilled to be a part of this music series again. “We are very excited to start another year of the Marriott Ballito Beats Music Series, as it becomes an integral part of the community calendar not just for North Coast locals but for fans from further afield too.”
