Vodacom In The City is back with another festival in the heart of Joburg’s city centre, Mary Fitzgerald Square, Newtown, on Friday, 3 October 2014. Now in its third year, the festival brings together a dynamic mix of international acts and thousands of the city’s music lovers for a musical experience.
To kick off this year’s lineup, Rudimental and Crystal Fighters are the first two international acts to be announced on this year’s stage. Multi-award winning act Rudimental (including a 2014 Brit Award) is a pioneering melting-pot collective who have taken the British music scene by storm with their debut album (Home) being released at number 1 on the UK charts. Championed for their uncompromising approach to music-making, their huge drum-and-bass-meets-soul anthem and No. 1 single ‘Feel The Love’ helped them achieve international recognition. Mixing live instrumentation with digital programming creates the band’s organic sound: “It’s the result of years of raving, listening to pirate radio, listening to dubs, to tapes older brothers would bring home, and being inspired by all of it,” says the band’s Piers Aggett. Expect a uniquely awesome performance from this lot; they’re notorious for rocking the masses on the global summer festival circuit including performances at leading international festivals Glastonbury and the USA’s Coachella in 2014.
Tickets go on sale on Thursday 22 May 2014 at 10h00 through www.vitc.co.za and the Vodacom In The City Facebook page (without the Vodacom Launch Ticket Discount).
