The South Coast Bike Fest™, South Africa’s biggest motorcycle and music festival, will return to Margate on 26-28 April.

As one of the destination’s flagship events, the South Coast Bike Fest™ will wow audiences with the great atmosphere and entertainment, pop-up food village, 8 beachfront boulevard themed bars, 9 on-site restaurants and bars, festival market, street busking, mass ride, Sunset Beach Party and seafood & wine jazz deck.

The Full Throttle Staging Arena will see some of the most extreme biking stunts and demo’s by SA’s most daring riders.
