MGMT HEADING TO SA FOR VODACOM IN THE CITY!

MGMT

After almost a decade of producing hit records, touring the world and headlining festivals across the globe, MGMT are finally heading to South Africa. Get ready to party with the psychedelic-synth pop beats of ‘Kids’, ‘Electric Feel’ and ‘Time to Pretend’ when New York City’s MGMT hit Jozi for Vodacom in the City, on Friday 3rd October.

Now in its third year, Vodacom In the City transforms Mary Fitzgerald Square in downtown Jozi into a pulsating spectacle of lights, lasers and an incredible blend of Jozi’s cosmopolitan music lovers. Put Friday 3 October in your diaries, you don’t want to miss this.

MGMT join the already announced international line-up of UK’s Brit Award winning drum-and-bass maestro’s Rudimental and British electro-folk band Crystal Fighters.

Ben Goldwasser and Andrew Van Wyngarden formed the first incarnation of MGMT (then called “the management”) as fellow students in 2001.  When they released the sensational Oracular Spectacular in 2008 their reputation began snowballing on both sides of the Atlantic. Not only were they nominated for a Grammy Award (which French dance act Justice picked up for remixing one of their tracks), but the UK’s leading music magazine NME dubbed them “the best NY band about” with Rolling Stone proclaiming them one of the “Top 10 Artists to Watch in 2008.”  Today, Oracular Spectacular with its major singles Kids, Time to pretend, Electric Feel & The Youth is consistently ranked amongst the most celebrated pop albums of the 21st century.

Without skipping a beat, MGMT, began writing and recording their second album Congratulations, which was released in April 2010 and debuted at #2 on the Billboard charts.

Their latest self-titled album MGMT has been described as perfectly ‘on the current pulse’, ‘drawing seasoned fans and new initiates alike into the band’s eureka zone.’

“This album feels to us like coming down to earth in a way,” admits Ben. “We’re trying to be accessible but we’re trying to do something new within the realm of pop music. When we finally came close to finishing MGMT, everyone in the studio had the feeling that we’d made something really great.”  Having shared the stage with the likes of Beck, Yeasayer, Radiohead, Florence And The Machine and Tame Impala, one can be pretty certain that many others will feel the very same way.

Vodacom In the City promises to be a huge night of thumping beats.  It’s going to heave with music fans from across Jozi all there for the same reason – to party hard to the bands that they love! 

Stay close to Vodacom In The City on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for news on the next line-up announcements.
