AMP EVENTS is proud to confirm rock icons PIXIES to tour South Africa in March 2017. Marking their first visit to SA, PIXIES will headline the inaugural “Rock on the Lawns” music festival on the Festival Lawns at Carnival City, Jo`burg.
PIXIES are considered to be one of the most influential alternative rock bands of all time. The band`s unique aural mix of surrealism, psychedelia, dissonance and use of dynamics became the template, in so many ways, for alternative rock in the 1990s. Their string of anthems include Gigantic, Where Is My Mind, Here Comes Your Man, Monkey Gone to Heaven, Debaser and many more.
At the “Rock on the Lawns” music festival at Carnival City, PIXIES will be supported by the cream of the SA rock scene: Springbok Nude Girls, Prime Circle, aKing, Crash Car Burn, Shortstraw, The Sweet Resistance and The Robfather (DJ).
They`ll perform on the Carnival City Festival Lawns, a premium outdoor setting at a venue that perfectly caters for large-scale music festivals. Concertgoers can expect a day of good vibes and incredible music. There will be ample parking and plenty of food and beverage options on offer.
