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 neighborhood 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’ (see preview at http://www.mastersofdirt.com/videos) and top rock and electronic music acts, headlined by top international rock band Seether.
Meanwhile, festival-goers can also expect amped-up bike demonstrations including a Custom Bike Build-Off (which will see a local bike builder being sent to compete in the USA), sizzling-hot Miss Biker SA finalists, microbreweries in the beer garden, a feast of food available from the Food Market, fast and furious biker merchandise stalls and new model motorbike exhibitions & product displays. And when the dust settles, visitors will be left with the knowledge that bike culture is there to celebrate freedom.
