Shake off the chills and bring on the heat with the biggest and best tattoo yet in September. The organisers believe it’s the hottest ticket in town!

The SA Tattoo, in partnership with Jacaranda FM and M-Net, presents its most spectacular line-up to date at Montecasino’s outdoor event area for four days only, from September 6 to 9.

This year’s 90-minute event will see more than 800 multicultural and multinational performers in a showcase of strength, discipline, morale and unity.

“When you combine strength in numbers, discipline through precision, morale from music and unity for a common cause, anything is possible,” says Simon Carter, the executive producer of the SA Tattoo.

This year’s soloists will include the singer and theatre/television actress, Siyasanda Papu (Hillside, Usindiso, Rhythm City) and the popular local recording artist, music writer and producer, theatre performer and local television and movie star, Vaughan Gardiner (Kyknet’s Hartland, Platteland, Tree Aan!).

Top international performers will include the Talentholdet Gym Team from Denmark and the O’Shea Ryan Irish Dancers from Australia, alongside our finest local talent including singers, dancers and performers from across the globe.

The Amazing Skipping Routine, the SA Air Force and SA Medical Health Service bands, the Anavarata Dance Institute’s traditional Indian dancers, the Afrikaanse Hoër Meisies and Seunskool massed choir will all be part of the line-up.

Traditional favourites, the 180-piece massed pipes and drums and the contingent of more than 80 Highland and Irish dancers, will all be back. The prestigious role of the lead Pipe Band for this year’s SA Tattoo has been reserved for the Transvaal Scottish Regimental Pipes and Drums in honour of the Transvaal Scottish Regiment in celebrating their 110th anniversary this year.
