Seven of SA’s biggest bands to rock out at Rocktober Rumble


CrashCarBurn, Sweet Resistance, The Parlotones, Prime Circle, Dirty Moonshine, The Narrow, and the Newtown Knife Gang will perform at The Rocktober Rumble at Carnival City on 28 October 2017.
“Rock is one of the most loved has music genres around the world. We’ve combined legendary rock acts with some of the cutting edge new kids on the block for an unforgettable experience,” says Nic Rush, a well-known musician who has played with Prime Circle and Watershed.

The Parlotones is one of South Africa’s most prolific rock bands and has won several awards, achieved multi-platinum album-selling status, and packed out venues for live concerts.

After notching up six studio albums, several chart-topping singles, a string of awards, and countless sold-out gigs, Prime Circle has earned the status of South African rock royalty. The band has demonstrated true staying power with a dynamic signature sound that continues to evolve.

CrashCarBurn carved a niche in the music industry with powerful rock anthems rock over the last decade. The band was started in 2006 after brothers, Garth and Brendan Barnes, put their incredibly successful punk rock band Tweak to bed and quickly united loyal fans with a new fan base.

Alternative rock band The Sweet Resistance burst onto the local music scene with the launch of its debut album, Where there is Hope, at two sold out Cape Town shows in 2016. Since the launch, several local radio stations have included the band’s debut single, Feel, in their playlists.

Dirty Moonshine delivers loud and raw rock ’n roll with dirty soul, sexy vocals, cutting leads, sweet slides, and reverberating bass. Rumbling and thundering from the Gauteng Highveld, Dirty Moonshine has taken its unique brand of rock’ n roll across the country.

Newtown Knife Gang secured a record deal with Electromode alongside top SA artists such as Jack Parow and Die Heuwels Fantasties. The band’s singles Read Between the Lines and Listenhave enjoyed high rotation on more than 25 national stations. The band established itself in a notoriously ‘tough to crack’ live scene, playing coveted slots at major festivals and top venues across the country.

With all three previous full-length albums nominated for South African Music Awards and producing classic hits like Lonely lonely Sunday morning, The Narrow is one of South Africa’s most exciting live acts.

“End October on a high note with some of the very best rock bands that South Africa has to offer. From legendary bands like The Parlotones and Prime Circle to some of the biggest names in rock music right now, Rocktober Rumble has it all. Do not miss this rocking show. Who knows when we will be able to pin down these artists for a collaborative show like this again?” says Michelle Smith, marketing manager at Carnival City.
