A few minutes ago 5FM announced that US folk-rock music sensations The Lumineers will make their South African debut this December when award-winning agency Seed Experiences, Virgin Mobile South Africa and 5FM bring the band to local stages.

They’ll perform at Cape Town’s Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens on Thursday 4 December and at Johannesburg’s Emmarentia Dam for a daytime concert on 6 December.


We love the fact that more international bands are heading to South Africa! You can buy your tickets for the Joburg show here, and for the Cape Town show here.

If you don’t know who The Lumineers are, watch the music video for ‘Ho Hey’ – you might enjoy it
