Security a priority for South Coast Bike Fest

Security a priority for South Coast Bike Fest

While listening to South Africa’s top musical acts and watching a parade of incredible biking machinery along Margate Beach from 27 to 30 April, visitors to the 2017 South Coast Bike Fest can be assured of their safety and security from accommodation to venue.

“We have lined up world-class entertainment, exhibitions and dining for everyone attending and have taken every measure to ensure that each person is kept safe throughout the four-day biking festival,” explained event organiser, Vicky Wentzel.

Local security personnel will be monitoring the new, secure event area where both visitors and their belongings – including all motorbikes – will be kept safe.

“The local guards will have an internal line of sight, which is important as they have intel on the key areas that need priority monitoring,” explained Wentzel. “Further to this, we will have security guards stationed along access routes to the venue which means that visitors will be protected when walking to and from their Margate accommodation.”

Wentzel said they would also be working closely with the South African Police Service ahead of, and during, the event so as to have every security angle covered.

Although entrance to the four-day festival is free, no person will have access without completing an online pre-registration, which will enhance security even more.

Organisers are anticipating a big turnout for the inaugural South Coast Bike Fest which will be hosting top South African bands including Matthew Mole, Prime Circle, Fokofpolisiekar, Just Jinjer and Koos Kombuis – among many others – at the #fuelyourfun Carling Main Beach Stage. The music entertainment will be extended beyond this to the Beach Pier Village Rock Stage.

Thrill-seekers can catch the country’s best skateboarding, BMX, FMX and trials bike riders display at the Experiential Energy Zone, while all the best restaurants, bars and pubs will keep visitors satiated in The Daily Village.

All bikes are welcome at the South Coast Bike Fest with free entrance to the four-day event provided pre-registration is completed online. This pre-registration allows #freefunseeker ticket holders access to the event boulevard including secure parking, access to the Main Beachfront Boulevard, Village Pier Rock Stage, Experiential Energy Zone, Mardi Gras Market, Flying Fish Hospitality Deck, Castle Light Pool Party and much more!
