Bloc Party ‘IN THE CITY’ Concert – Johannesburg

If you have not heard the news as yet, where have you been? Under a rock?

A couple of weeks ago Rocking the Daisies raised the bar with the announcement of Bloc Party headlining at their festival.

IN THE CITY, Johannesburg’s fresh new concert will be headlining with Bloc Party at the debut annual event.

Shadowclub, the incredible 3 piece Rock ‘n Roll outfit were first announced as one of three opening acts for this event.

Tumi featuring Yesterdays Pupil has been added to the bill as well.

DJ Yoda (UK) and Die Antwoord have been added to the final line up as well!

Tickets are nice and easy on the wallet, a general pass is R265 (limited availability) and if you are seeking that extra something special, VIP will cost you R700. VIP includes a separate entrance, a raised special viewing area and complimentary drinks and snacks for the duration of the show.
