2014-09-17 14:57

Cape Town - Vodacom announced the winning band for this year’s Open The City competition on Wednesday.

While it was a tight race, electronic rap duo P.H.fat received the most public votes and will now have the honour of being the only local act to perform at Vodacom In The City alongside the international line-up of Rudimental, MGMT, Crystal Fighters and The Presets.

The competition saw thousands of votes come in via SMS and online from music fans eager to see their favourite band on stage. For several fierce (but fun) weeks, P.H.fat went beat-for-beat against fellow Open The City finalists Bye Beneco, The Plastics and The Kiffness to rally their fans’ support in a bid to win.

On 3 October, P.H.fat will take to the Vodacom In The City stage to shake things up with their "homemade" explosive mish-mash rap sound. The fresh and talented duo deliver an incredible live performance that encourages massive crowd participation and will be sure to get fans charged up and ready to party.

They are best known for their current blow-out hit single Lights Out, which play-listed on more than 12 radio stations across the country from their most recent 17-track full-length album, Happiness Machines

See P.H.fat perform live at Vodacom In The City on 3 October at Mary Fitzgerald Square, Newtown.
