The Lumineers heading to SA in December

Cape Town - US folk-rock sensation The Lumineers will make their South African debut this December.

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

The Lumineers, made up of Wesley Schultz, Jeremiah Fraites and Neyla Pekarek, became a success story in their native US with their 2011 self-titled debut album. That same album gave the band international recognition, selling over 1 million copies and over 3.5 million single downloads around the world. Their UK debut single – and arguably the band’s most famous to date – Ho Hey has gained over 109 million YouTube views alone.



The band was nominated for both Best New Artist and Best Americana Album at the 2013 Grammy Awards and has played to sold-out shows in the UK and Europe, as well as taking to the stage at major festivals like Glastonbury and others on the European calendar.

Their music has been described as classic and genuine, raw and unique. They mix flavours of folk, alternative rock, Americana and indie, cutting them with a rustic edge.

Their recent single Stubborn Love, a follow-up to hit Hey Ho is a live favourite of the band’s and will be sure to get SA fans singing along to the powerful chorus.



An incredible supporting line-up will be announced soon, so stay close to Seed Experiences, Virgin Mobile SA and 5FM on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
