After almost five months on the road touring the globe, modern folk hitmaker, Jeremy Loops returns home to present his debut Summersault Festival this April in the Mother City.
Stellenbosch’s Zevenwacht Wine Estate calls on all festival lovers to join festival creator and local music legend Jeremy Loops, the UK’s electronica pop artist Youngr, Australia’s folk artist Kim Churchill, indie sensations Diamond Thug, Cape Town’s muso Matthew Mole, the talented Sean Koch, and indie pop hybrid band World of Birds, for a fresh, new experience on the festival calendar. A day out on the picturesque 300 year old wine estate grounds with picnic baskets to order and a view of Table Mountain, the perfect back drop for a lifestyle music festival.
Jeremy jumped at the opportunity to create his own festival and bring some of his friends from around the world together on stage at a one-day festival in his home town. Through his travels and tour locations, Jeremy has had the privilege of meeting some incredible artists along the way, and his interaction with Australian folk, rock and blues artist Kim Churchill was one that had a lasting effect, which he wanted fellow South Africans in on this signature talent.
Garnering international support and working with some of the industry’s biggest names, Jeremy rounds off the acclaimed Levitation Tour by bringing together an array of top talent for a one-day music celebration. A move to connect fellow international musicians and a SA audience on a local stage.
‘I’m incredibly excited to introduce Summersault Festival, our first Jeremy Loops music festival. It's in our DNA, really. In our early days in Cape Town, we used to host our own parties just to have a platform to perform on, and later when we began playing festivals, and as I’ve toured the globe doing so recently, I've always obsessed about lineups, design, and how I'd tweak a festival if it was my own. Well, the time has arrived and so here we are!’, says Jeremy Loops.
