7 Events To Get Back Your Party Mood

From rebellious festivals to beast-like 4x4’s

 

It’s payday weekend and we have some great events to splurge your first 2020 paycheck on. There’s a motorcycle music festival with a rebellious edge and a 4x4 drag racing event with lots of fun for the kids. There’s also a vision board workshop for those new year’s resolutions and a picnic concert with an iconic Cape Town pop group. Plus, next week, we have Africa’s richest race as well as its foremost heavy metal festival.

#Pickoftheweek: Dirty 4x4 Drag Racing
Saturday, 25 January
Big wheels and rumbling engines that are rough and ready for any terrain: these are the beast-like vehicles you can expect at the Coopertires’ Battle Of The Beasts.


2. Kick Start The Weekend With Happy Hour And Live Music
Friday 24 January 
La Parada has plenty in store for your weekend: 2-for-1 specials on wine and beer, gin activations, Spanish-style tapas, and live entertainment from Acoustic Element, DJ Cosher, DJ Tanner and ALT EGO. Do you need any other excuse to start your weekend at La Parada Sunset Sounds?


3. Get Your 2020 Vision Off The Ground
Friday, 24 January
Put your New Year’s resolutions into action by making a vision board with art psychotherapist Samantha Davis at her Cape Town Vision Board Workshop.


4. Iconic Band At An Iconic Monument
Friday, 24 January
Long-standing Cape Town music group The Rockets are bringing their originals and favourite covers to the Paarl Afrikaanse Taalmonument for their annual picnic concert.


5. Unleash The Rebel In You
Saturday, 25 January - Sunday, 26 January
Motorbikes, rock ‘n’ roll and rebellion... You’ll find plenty of that at this festival. There will also be food, entertainment for the kids and a Harley Davidson riding experience. Plus classic live acts and more at the Festival Of Rebels: Motorcycle Lifestyle Festival.


6. Are You Tough Enough For Red Hill?
Saturday, 25 January
Take on one of Cape Town’s most challenging ascents on a scenic run along the South Peninsula. You can change your distance mid-race if you’re struggling, and there will also be a prize-giving with cash and lucky draw prizes to the value of R8,000 at the STBB Red Hill Marathon.


7. What Would Pinotage From The Oldest Vines Taste Like?
Saturday, 25 January
Taste the 2015 vintage from the oldest Pinotage vineyard in the world, then enjoy a wine pairing with cheese, home-baked bread and other treats. All you have to do is join a 2.5km meander surrounded by the scenic Stellenbosch Kloof Valley for the Top Of The Hill Vineyard Walk.

WHAT TO PLAN FOR NEXT WEEKEND
Metal4Africa Summerfest
Cape Town hosts one of Africa’s premier heavy metal festivals and this year it’s bringing in some top acts from Cape Town, Gauteng, and even Botswana. You can also meet the bands, buy alternative gear, and headbang to tunes spun by deejays on the second stage at Metal4Africa Summerfest.


The Cape Town Schools Big Beach Clean Up
Join a group of everyday heroes every first Saturday of the month to clean up Cape Town’s beaches. The group of environment crusaders meet every month to stop plastic pollution on our beaches at the monthly Cape Town Beach Cleanup.


And...
Dress in your best and enjoy drinks, parties, tunes by the likes of Black Coffee, Da Capo, DJ Codax and more. Your theme this year is African Luxury: Visionary. Don’t forget that there’s horse racing too at the Sun Met.
