The 1975 LIVE in Cape Town at Rocking the Daisies! #RTD2019

YOHHHHHHHHHHHHH! BEST NEWS EVER! And I was just thinking about how I need to remove my 1975 blog post and stop spamming people about the band and here we are!

Rocking the Daisies have announced that the British pop group will be headlining their 2019 installment of the eco-friendly festival and Cape Town can’t wait! And when I say Cape Town, I mean ME! 😀

The 14th edition of South Africa’s biggest three-day music and lifestyle experience will be taking place at their “home”, from 4-6 October, at Cloof Wine Estate, Darling. Daisies will mark the first time that the band performs LIVE in South Africa.

Who Are the 1975?

Consisting of lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Matthew Healy, lead guitarist Adam Hann, bassist Ross MacDonald and drummer George Daniel, the band shot to fame in 2013 after the release of their highly acclaimed self-titled album, which included the hits ‘Sex’, ‘Chocolate’ and ‘Robbers’, all of which topped UK charts.

In November 2018 the band released their third studio album A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships, to critical praise, making it their third number one album in the UK. Fans are gearing up for the release of their fourth album Notes on a Conditional Form, which is expected to drop in May.

The 1975 kicked off 2019 with two BRIT Award wins for best British album and best group, with major festivals around the world announcing the band as their official headliners, from Reading Festival, to LeedsSzigetBBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend and more.
