Breakout Management and DStv in association with 94.7 Highveld Stereo, are excited to announce that they’ve secured a solid selection to make sure that the headliners of the next PARKLIFE FESTIVAL in March are all fully fledged Internationals with huge followings.

Donavon Frankenreiter has built a very loyal SA fanbase within the surf and indie music scene. As an American musician and surfer, and long-time friend of Jack Johnson, his debut self-titled album was released in 2004 on Johnson’s Brushfire Records through Universal Music. He released his 5th Studio album Start Livin’ in 2012 and SA fans will be looking forward to hearing him perform songs such asIt Don’t Matter“, “Free“, “YouandShadows“.

KT Tunstall is no stranger to SA Music fans and has had countless hits on radio with singles such as “Suddenly I See“, “Other Side of the World“, “Black Horse & The Cherry Tree“, “Hold On” and “Saving My Face“. She’s released four albums, achieved 4 million sales, was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2005, won one Ivor Novello and one Brit Award. She’s best known for her incredible live performance and brings it to SA in March for PARKLIFE.

Frank Turner has done over 1,400 epic live shows around the globe with four acclaimed albums and a performance at the Olympics Opening Ceremony he’s a force. He sold more than 100,000 copies of his fourth album, England Keep My Bones, which entered the UK charts at No 12 on its release in 2011 and is now Jozi bound.

Im a guy with a very particular view of life... im not quite sure what that view is just yet, but when I find out I'll be sure to let you know...


  1. I’m most excited to check Donavon Frenkenreiter! I’ve been listening to him from when he released first album and I’m sooooo stoked to see him perform live! I’m also keen to watch my homies Shortstraw kick some ass on stage. Please hook me up with some tickets? PLEASE? 🙂

  2. im super excited to see SHORTSTRAW again after there gig at Park Acoustics last month!!! pick me pick me 🙂

  3. I’m so excited to see Donavon Frankenreiter. With a music often described visually as a beach bum riding a sea porpoise through atlantic ocean playing his pan-flute, this man’s music has the ability to calm anything. Let’s call him the “Universal Whisperer”. By this I mean that he can literally calm a angry protest (maybe the solution for these service delivery protests these days), a group of raging Kamchatka brown bears, a wildebeast stampede, pretty much any form of raging creature…i’m even going to take it further and say this man can probably stop the South-Easter if he tries hard enough. He embodies the cure for stress, anxiety and depression. It will be amazing to see this man work his magic. Would love to see this oke play!

  4. Congrats Marius Bartlett – the tickets are yours! You’ll be receiving a mail with deets shortly
