Beatenberg are back with a month(ish)-long tour of intimate performances for their South African fans of their new album, 12 Views of Beatenberg; an introspective turn for the band’s start to a new year. With friends The World of Birds performing alongside them for a portion of these small-stage encounters, the tour will see them bringing the audience closer to the heart of the music, while traveling from their mother-city hometown across the country via staples like Johannesburg, East London and George, as well as beyond to Botswana and Lesotho, for a cosy capacity of 200 music lovers apiece.
Tickets are moving fast, and Cape Town is making it all the more difficult to keep up! The boys will be stopping by for an extra night at The Raptor Room, as well as Railways Cafe in Pretoria. With the closure of The Orbit, we’ll be moving to Marabi Lounge, so stay in the know and follow our socials for updates.
