THE PLATFORM:Striped Horse Beats for Tomorrow is a series of events through which we will be presenting exciting South African talents as they journey towards tomorrow. We recognise this new generation of culture-builders in Mzansi, and not only honour them with a beer brewed specially for them, but want to give rise to their voices, their sounds, and their thirst for tomorrow. Kicking off at Flame Studios in Johannesburg on the last Thursday of April, the intimate, yet inspiring setting coupled with ice-cold Striped Horse beer is all the reason to keep in touch and find out how to obtain a much sought-after ticket.
THE SETTING: Flame Studios is a world-class recording studio hub situated in the Constitution Hill precinct. Taking inspiration from the Flame of Democracy – a perpetual flame that burns outside the Constitutional Court and serves to remind South Africans of their right to a life free from oppression and injustice. Flame Studios is a contemporary expression of the new spirit and direction of Constitution Hill: recording spaces designed to amplify the voices of South Africa’s new generation of musicians, artists and storytellers.
Striped Horse Premium Beer recognised that the perfect place to give rise to its Beats For Tomorrow platform is Flame Studios. Here we will host exciting young South African musical talents as they journey towards tomorrow. We are excited to play but a small part in this incredible journey
THE BEER: Striped Horse Premium Lager – crisp, refreshing modern beer that satisfies with every sip.
