Durban, are you ready? Your favourite Jeremy Loops is back… and he’s getting set to turn up the beat at the Durban Botanic Gardens on Sunday the 29th of September, in the third instalment of the 2019 Old Mutual Music at the Lake Series, with East Coast Radio.

SEPTEMBER: Picture the scene. It’s a glorious sunny day in Durban. You’re enjoying a picnic in one of the most magically lush botanic gardens in South Africa, surrounded by trees and nature. Your friends and family are close by, and Jeremy Loops is on stage bringing his iconic foot-stomping, beat-boxing and looping lyrical genius. Throw in two stellar opening acts – Bad Peter and Rubber DUC – and you’ve got yourself the perfect Sunday!

From cult live act status in his hometown Cape Town, to a chart-topping album domestically, Jeremy Loops arrived on the South Africa’s music scene with an unexpected force with a No.1 debut on iTunes in 2014 with his very first album. Relentless touring from early 2014 to the end of 2016 laid the foundation for the next level of success, making Loops a household name in no time at all. After spending most of 2018 traveling to Europe, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, he’s back in sunny South Africa and he’s coming to spoil Durbanites with his signature guitar licks, vocal turns and melodies to sing along to.

Thobile Tshabalala, head of brand Old Mutual is proud to be a part of this music series, for a number of reasons.

“This musical sponsorship enables us, as Old Mutual, to truly connect with people who are passionate about enjoying their lives and having a quality time together with family and friends,” says Tshabalala.

“Music is a very powerful way of speaking the same language and through our presence and involvement in these kinds of music-based platforms we have the ability to gently remind people of the importance of having a supportive financial coach or partner as you strive to be your exceptional best.”

“Not only do we encourage family time, support of the artists we get to perform and entertain us, but we make every effort to support the maintenance of these beautiful environments as well, through our sponsorship investments.”

“Old Mutual is proud to partner with the Music at the Lake series and are confident that through passion, a healthy lifestyle and a healthy financial plan we are all destined to do Great things every day.”

While music gets fans to their feet, it’s important to note that all proceeds from the Music at the Lake concerts are allocated by the Durban Botanic Gardens Trust to projects that assist with the maintenance and sustainability of the Gardens, ensuring it remains a place for all who visit to appreciate and enjoy.

Tickets for the Jeremy Loops concert are available via www.webtickets.co.za. Early bird tickets cost R170 for adults, R120 for children between 6 and 12, and R20 for children under 6. Gates will open at 12h30 on Sunday the 29th of September. Secure parking is available on the umPhafa field at the Durban Botanic Gardens. Attendees are invited to spend the afternoon picnicking on the beautiful lawns, and are welcome to bring their own food, drink, blankets and camping chairs.
