We quite excited about this – I mean the Pixies are heading to South Africa, what’s not exciting about that? AMP Events is proud to confirm rock icons Pixies will be touring South Africa in March 2017. Marking their first visit to SA, the Pixies will headline the inaugural “Rock on the Lawns” music festival on the Festival Lawns at Carnival City, Jo’burg and will play under the stars at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens in Cape Town as well.
Pixies are considered to be one of the most influential alternative rock bands of all time, and have created a host of anthems include Gigantic, Where Is My Mind, Here Comes Your Man, Monkey Gone to Heaven and more.
At the “Rock on the Lawns” music festival, the Pixies will be supported by the cream of the crop on the SA rock scene: Springbok Nude Girls, Prime Circle, aKing, CrashCarBurn, Shortstraw, The Sweet Resistance and The Robfather (DJ).
They’ll perform on the Carnival Festival Lawns, a premium outdoor setting at a venue that perfectly caters for large-scale music festivals.
The Cape Town “Rock on the Lawns” concert will be a more intimate experience as fans enjoy PIXIES under the stars at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens supported by Springbok Nude Girls.
