Rogue Wave, a reasonably new name in the Cape Town event space, is now officially here to stay. Having been involved in the event space since 2000, having helped run Matric Rage for many years as well as some of the biggest student events in the early 2000’s, Lyle Masters & Sean Binder now head up ROGUE WAVE SA. A new force to be reckoned with in the music events industry in SA.
Launching in early 2018, the duo brought down Sister Bliss for an intimate Faithless DJ set at Shimmy Beach in Cape Town & for a much bigger audience in JHB at the H2o show. Prior to this, many thought the guys had given up the game, but they came out swinging with 2 sold-out show’s. This gave them the idea to call their new brand “Rogue Wave”, defined, meaning:
“Rogue Waves are usually large, unexpected and suddenly appearing surface waves that can be extremely dangerous, even to large ships such as ocean liners”.
A legend/veteran in the cape town nightlife, recently joined the Rogue Wave ranks to take the team, the brand and their strategy to new heights. Abby Chapel has been respected among the community for his strong marketing abilities and a knack for creating and throwing sold-out festivals He’s a great addition to the Rogue Wave team, so you can imagine what the team has in store for 2020.
