After the longest wait in all existence of waiting, Indie Rock band, MGMT are finally heading to South Africa!

The Psychedelic duo will headline the Vodacom In The City Festival in Johannesburg this October, alongside Brit Award wining Drum and Bass outfit Rudimentals and Brit Folk/electro band Crystal Fighters.

Not only will we be able to singing along to all their classics like Electric Feel, Time to Pretend and Kids, but fans can also look forward to hearing some songs from their new self-titled album.

Talking about the new album, MGMT's Ben says they tried to change up their sounds for the new album; "This album feels to us like coming down to earth in a way. We're trying to be accessible but we're trying to do something new within the realm of pop music." Adding, "When we finally came close to finishing MGMT, everyone in the studio had the feeling that we'd made something really great."

Vodacom In the City Festival takes place on the 3rd of October at the Mary Fitzgerald Square in Johannesburg.

Ticket prices are R450 for general standing and R1000 for VIP/ Private area and food
