Great News! Music lovers in Gauteng and the Western Cape can look forward to seeing The Prodigy at Synergy Live 2012! It’s the second time that this electronica act will be making their way to South Africa.
The Prodigy have sold over 25 million records globally. They’ve also had a string of number 1 hits and a musical career spanning over 20 years. Rest assured, The Prodigy will bring it! They’ll bring it harder and faster than any other act on earth! The Prodigy are constantly evolving, distorting and contorting the way we understand music. In case you were wondering, they recently headlined the 2012 Download Festival in the UK.
In case you did not know, Synergy Live 2012 will take place from the 30th of November to the 2nd of December at Theewater Sports Club near Villiersdorp in the Western Cape and on the 1st of December at Riversands Farm in Fourways, Johannesburg. Early Bird Tickets for the Western Cape leg of the festival have already sold out. If you ask me, this is proof that Synergy Live has become one of the more established festivals in South Africa over the last few years.
