Skrillex Mothership Tour SA


Well if you didn't hear about it by now, then its safe to say you've been living under a rock. Electric Music SA  the same guys who brought you Deadmau5, Avicii, Steve Aoki, Nicky Romero and most recently Swedish House Mafia are bringing Skrillex to our shores! The electro dubstep producer will be down in March for a 3 part tour, visiting the 3 major cities (Cape Town, Joburg and Durban).  I personally cannot wait to see him in concert, wasn't the biggest fan of his stuff but after hearing his live set from Ultra Music Festival last year featuring 12th Planet, I was sold! The guy is a talent of note and at only aged 25 he has been nominated for 5 Grammys of which he won 3 ("Best Dance/Electronica Album," "Best Dance Recording," and "Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical"). His single "Breakin a sweat" featuring the Doors was one of my favourite choon's of 2012 and his remix of Avicii's Levels is probably the best from the lot.


MEDIA RELEASE FROM ELECTRIC MUSIC SA

Skrillex Mothership Tour CT venue change
Samsung Galaxy Experience and Electric are proud to bring the Skrillex Mothership SA Tour powered by 5FM and MK, to South Africa. Skrillex will be visiting Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban at the beginning of March for his 2013 (and first) South African tour.
The Cape Town venue has just been changed to the Ostrich Farm following the massive success of Swedish House Mafia at the same venue.  The reason for the change is that the capacity at Thunder City had been restricted and we didn’t want to run the risk of letting down any Skrillex fans. 
Please note that we have taken note of the traffic congestion problem that people experienced after Swedish House Mafia and will ensure that this runs more smoothly after Skrillex’s show.

The final show dates and venues are:
  • Friday 1 March at the Ostrich Farm in Cape Town  - Doors open 5pm
  • Saturday 2 March at H2O, Wild Waters in Johannesburg - Doors open 12pm
  • Sunday 3 March at the Wavehouse in Durban - Doors open 3pm
