Last week saw the announced of the return of IN THE CITY. This time round though, sees IN THE CITY spread over one whole weekend throughout Johannesburg!
“In the City is back. Not for one unbelievable music experience, but three. For the first time ever In the City is expanding to a full weekend city takeover.
Opening up this highly anticipated festival, In the City will host three separate events for lovers of electronic, house, urban, hip-hop, indie and everything in between, all under the banner of the In the City Weekend.
To kick off this year’s incredible international line-up, the highly requested U.S. award winning, indie band Foster the People will headline the main concert on Sunday 9 October. These Grammy award nominees behind the smash-hits “Helena Beat”, “Don’t Stop (Color on the Walls)” and “Coming of Age” and “Pumped Up Kicks” will ignite Emmarentia Dam with their addictive, quirky dance-infused pop and rock.
Daniel Pearce, better known as Eats Everything, will headline the AND Liftoff party on Friday 7 October. In early 2015, Dan Pearce delivered a two CD compilation ‘Fries With That’, launching the mix with a very special intimate Boiler Room party from his favourite Fish and Chip shop in Bristol earlier this year. Recently, Dan has played sets at Snowbombing, Ultra Music Festival and at Coachella as part of JESuS.
One weekend. Three incredible music experiences.
Bringing it back to downtown Jo’burg, the home of In the City, electronic music fans can look forward to a Friday night kick-off party featuring the best in international and local underground electro, deep house and techno for AND Liftoff on 7 October. Renowned for their uncompromising music ethos, the collective of ardent individuals behind the brand are constantly pushing the boundaries of the music that Jo’burg clubbers are exposed to.
On Saturday 8 October, cultural melting pot Braamfontein will be transformed into a tropical beach paradise for the Virgin Mobile Braam Beach Party. Complete with beach sand, palm trees and awesome mobile connectivity, party goers can make the most of summer in the city – so come dressed in your summer outfits. SA’s best house and hip hop acts will take to the stage to spin lyrics and turn tables while the sun sets over Nelson Mandela Bridge. Head to Great Dane in Braam on Thursday night 7 July for the big line-up reveal hosted by Virgin Mobile.
The pinnacle of the weekend remains the In the City Concert, set in the heart of Jo’burg’s city parks, Emmarentia Dam on Sunday 9 October. Join us for a beautiful day on the grass while listening to the world-class line-up of international artists fresh off the plane from sister Cape Town festival Rocking the Daisies.“
