Festival of music at Emmarentia Dam

Festival of music at Emmarentia Dam

Top SA acts P.H.fat and Al Bairre will complement an already stellar line-up of acts for Vodacom In The City, taking place at Emmarentia Dam on Sunday, October 4.

Successful in their own right, P.H.fat and Al Bairre were also previous Vodacom Open The City winners – and join this year’s Open The City winner Grassy Spark as the local bands on stage.

This is the first time in the festival’s history that such a strong local lineup has been booked, reaffirming Vodacom’s commitment to showcasing top SA talent, alongside stellar internationals The Kooks, Milky Chance and The Cat Empire (pictured above).

Fresh off performing over 40 shows this year alone while touring SA, the UK, Europe and Australia, P.H.fat are set to hit the #VITC2015 stage again. After proving their ability to command an audience and perform alongside international veterans without missing a beat, in 2014 these electronic rap hip-hop hellions will bring their smooth, dirty rhymes to the 2015 stage.

Loveable, quirky Cape Town band Al Bairre have been hitting up playlists across the country with such recent hits as ‘Bungalow’ and ‘Julia’, while finishing their own tour of the UK. “We are frothing out to play Vodacom In The City again,” says the band. “We love dancing and if we remember correctly so do the good people of Joburg. So it’s always a gas. Also we can’t wait to see The Cat Empire. That was like our whole childhood.”
