Sugar Rush Park, Ballito, 29th October 2017
Award-winning, best-selling, crowd-pleasing, platinum status artists! That’s what KZN North Coast locals can expect to see and hear on Sunday the 29th of October at the Sugar Rush Park in Ballito – as Arno Carstens and Ard Matthews, arguably two of South Africa’s biggest entertainment legends, take to the stage in a music ensemble like never before.
With a combined musical expertise that spans 35 years, both artists will bring their unique sounds to the grassy lawns of Sugar Rush Park, in what is anticipated to be a sold out show. With only 2 000 tickets available, fans can enjoy an exclusive and intimate show where two of South Africa’s musical legends collaborate in a one-of-a-kind experience, just for Ballito.
“As tickets are quickly selling out to our fourth and final concert for 2017, we really feel like we have delivered on our promise to offer locals the very best family entertainment right in their very own back yard,” says Marriott Ballito Beats Series Director Stu Berry. “We’ve witnessed as the interest has grown with each show; a clear indication that North Coast locals are eager for the opportunity to spend time outdoors with family and friends, enjoying picnics, catching up and singing along to some of the greatest musical talent South Africa has to offer.”
Over the course of the last decade and a half, well known singer and songwriter, Ard Matthews, has been honing his craft and moving people the world over. As the front man of South African band Just Jinjer, his indelible lyrics and melody arrangements led the way to the incredible success of the band; with their debut album ‘All Comes Round’ becoming one of the biggest selling rock genre albums of all time in South Africa. In 2012, Ard released his debut solo album to critical acclaim, and continues to perform as both a solo act as well as front man for Just Jinjer, with many well-known and talented musicians joining him on stage.
