This past weekend I attended Vredefest 2011 in Hatfield Square (in Pretoria). The line-up consisted of aKING, Van Coke Kartel, Evolver One, Mrs B, Die Tuindwergies and Candi Black. aKING were the last band to perform on the evening. They released their new album a few weeks ago. The first single off the album, The Runaround has been getting some airplay on Tuks FM and other radio stations in South Africa. They are definitely one of the best live acts in South Africa (in my opinion).
aKING will be playing at Tings ‘n Times in Hatfield, Pretoria on the 1st of April (along with Dance You’re on Fire), at the Joburg Xperience at Skyraiders in Johannesburg on the 2nd of April (along with Wrestlerish, Die Antwoord, Die Heuwels Fantasties and Jax Panik) and at Kirstenbosch in Cape Town on the 3rd of April. Get your butt down to one of these shows and support South African music. I snapped this photo of aKING performing at Vredefest in Hatfield Square on Saturday and it has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 28th of March 2011.
