Saturday, 12 August 2017 saw the first #pumpforpeace concert take place at Pretoria’s Wolwespruit MTB and Trail Park in South Africa. After a rocking launch in Lesotho, global sports and music upliftment initiative #pumpforpeace hit South African shores with benefit concerts with a star-studded lineup.
Music lovers had a whole day of sounds to look forward to from The Parlotones, Karen Zoid, Desmond & The Tutus, Black Cat Bones, Tidal Waves and a guest performance from Claudio Caluori himself with a sweet rendition of the Neil Young classic Rockin‘ The Free World along with Black Cat Bones.
And because #pumpforpeace unites musicians and athletes on a mission to develop sport and musical talent in third world countries, the day would not be complete without a wild enduro race with the legend Claudio Caluori joining in for the fun. The morning kicked off with a 100 riders braving the Africa sun to lay it on the line for this initiative and its global message of unity.
All proceeds supported the revival of music initiatives and the construction of new Pump Tracks in disadvantaged communities
