Pop rock icons Prime Circle will headline the third FNB Drak Music Experience concert at the Underberg Country Club on February 1, 2020, with quirky indie rockers Desmond and the Tutus.

Prime Circle have been popular hit-makers on the South African music scene since 2000, with seven studio albums that have gone gold or platinum. They burst onto the international scene with the single Hello in 2002, and have been regular radio Top 20 charters ever since.

The distinct voice of frontman Ross Learmonth has become an iconic part of South African rock music for the better part of 20 years and their hits have become timeless in the South African music landscape.

Pretoria based rock band Desmond And The Tutus have a string of hits including Pretoria Girls and Lazy Bones from their 15 year career.

Their original sound has also become a staple on radios and at music festivals throughout the country.

KwaZulu-Natal based Mali Zulu and Steve Umculo complete the bill and are sure to bring their own fans to the Southern Drakensberg for the festival event.

The concert forms the centrepiece of the FNB Drak Adventure Weekend that includes the N3TC Drak Challenge in partnership with FNB, the Euro Steel Drak Descent MTB race, and the Euro Steel Run The Rivers trail run.

Entrants to each of these events get a free ticket to the concert and a second free ticket for a family member of friend. A limited number of tickets will also go on sale to the public from 14h00 on the day of the concert.

The performance times for the FNB Drak Music Experience are as follows:

17h15 - 18h00: Steve Umculo
18h30 - 19h30: Desmond & the Tutu’s
19h45 - 20h30: Mali Zulu
