Rock fans around the country do we have a treat for you! Today, American rock legends, The Cure, announced that they are making their way to South Africa in March 2019 for two epic shows. The group will headline Rock On The Lawns which will take place on the Festival Lawns at Carnival City, Johannesburg on Saturday 16 March and Kenilworth Racecourse in Cape Town on Thursday 21 March (Public holiday) 2019.

The group will headline the show and will be joined by an array of impressive local acts like Fokofpolisiekar, Ard Matthews, Karen Zoid, Zebra & Giraffe, Opposite The Other, Southern Wild and Hellcats. The festival will also include a variety of beer gardens, gourmet food trucks, ample parking and other facilities.

The music festivals in Johannesburg and Cape Town will be the first ever performances in South Africa by The Cure and festival goers are in for a real treat, as they are planning a two-hour plus, career spanning set filled with fan favourites from their incredible catalogue including hits like “Friday I’m In Love”, “Lullaby”, “Close to Me”, “Love Song”, “Boys Don’t Cry”, “The Lovecats”, “Let’s Go To Bed”, “Just Like Heaven” and many more

“This is the second Rock on the Lawns festival experience we’ve created in South Africa” says AMP Events founder Andy Mac “It’s a fantastic day out with your mates enjoying great bars, great food and of course, world-class live artists! All in a comfortable, relaxed environment. Last year we brought PIXIES out as our headliner and the response was terrific. THE CURE has been very high on my list of acts to bring to fans here for a long time, and I’m delighted that we’ve finally managed to make it happen!”
